Queen of Cups

A beautiful blonde Queen stands at a table in a gilt gown with ornate red and gilt wallpaper behind her. She holds a book and quill. On the table is a basket of doves, a cup of water with a glass decanter and a scorpion.

My Interpretation: A warm, loving woman.

Maternal and nurturing. Gentle, insightful and considerate of the needs of others. Loyal, honest and completely trustworthy. She can change easily to blend in with her surroundings - perhaps a little too much, as she does not often assert her own personality or opinions. She is creative, and a lover of art and poetry. Represents the Zodiac sign of Scorpio.

(Reversed: A woman of few morals, willing to use others for her own ends. She is untrustworthy and fickle).

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've added more symbolism to assist readers (and the old Queen wasn't as pretty). This card is different to the Rider-Waite card, although hopefully still easily recognisable as the Queen and the Cup are fairly obvious. The bottle and water in the cup indicate the element for the suit.
