Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - Queen Of Cups Reversed

Queen Of Cups Reversed
Introduction: The reversed Queen of Cups is still among the most loving archetypes in the tarot deck. She indicates compassion, love, and concern for ourselves and our fellow man. Often when the "court cards" come up in a reading, they indicate an actual person, in this case a woman, in our lives. The majority of the time when the queen of Cups appears, and is "standing in" for a person, she is representing a female with hair on the lighter end of the spectrum. However, because of the reversal, it can indicate that this woman may be feeling hurt, put-upon, and can be becoming untrustworthy. Watch the signals.

General: The reversed Queen of Cups reminds us to treat ourselves with love and compassion. Regardless of your past or your circumstances, you are worthy of love and respect. However, there may also be a literal woman in your life whose loving energy may have turned to anger. Watch for this, and if possible, help this woman to understand the things that are happening in her life.

Work: A woman in your workplace may be causing you problems. If so, she would be a once very kind and understanding person, who has now morphed into basically a control freak, and at minimum her loving ways might have turned into being more judgmental and untrustworthy. The best way to handle her is to be considerate of her feelings, and not to give her any information that you wouldn't want shared with everyone. If looking for work, a woman may be helpful in landing a job now.

Love: In general when the reversed Queen of Cups appears in a reading about love, the outlook is good. This card reminds you to stay focused in the loving side of your personality. True, deep love for others also encompasses understanding that other people are on their own timelines. Do not be impatient or forceful or petulant. Good things come to those who wait. Be dignified and restrained, not pushy.


Finances: The reversed Queen says that you must be careful about being too aggressive financially. Cautious investments and placements of your money are a better bet now. Allow yourself to think creative and to be creative with your money, but only within reason. Do not gamble or loan more than you can afford to lose. It's possible that not everyone around you now is trustworthy with regard to money. Be thoughtful about where you place your trust. If you can't control your own behavior with money, it's time to get help. You don't have to go it alone.

Health: The Queen of Cups reversed points to needing, and receiving support and love in the context of health. If you have need of healing, look to women/those with strong feminine energy. The reversal also calls you to be loving and supportive of yourself. If you are dealing with illness of some type, you may need to "forgive" and send love to your body. Positive visualization is important now.

Spirituality: When you pull the reversed Queen of Cups in this context, you may be hungry for immediate spiritual experiences and growth. This card reminds you that, again, good things take time, and that part of being loving is to be patient. Be open to - and proactive about - growth but don't be in a hurry.
