Artist’s Interpretation and Card Meaning:

“In creating my concept for the Queen of Wands, I kept pretty much to a fairly traditional interpretation of the card. I knew the Queen needed to be seen on a throne of some kind that has two lions, facing each direction. There also needed to be a black cat, warm colors and sunflowers. The Queen is normally seen holding a sunflower, and a wand which is starting to blossom. Instead of sunflowers, I changed to yellow lotus blossoms in keeping with the nautical theme. The Queen’s hair rushes upwards as thoguh she were underwater, and also as a symbol of her energy and intensity. The black cat traditionally symbolizes magic and occultism, and to make it more mysterious and bring further aquatic elements to the pai nting, I camouflaged the cat amongst black goldfish. The fish also represent some of the darder aspects of the card, while the rest is positive, determined, creative, and warm, as the Queen of Wands traditionally is.”

Two lions face in different directions, flanking the Queen on her throne. They’re decorations, illustrating strength and fire within. The Queen is beautiful and warm, her hair flows up between the lions, creating a whirlpool underwater. The stem of a flower winds its way around a wand in her hand, and she is surrounded by yellow lotus flowers. They glow with otherworldly energy, as black fish swim between them. At the feet of the Queen sits a black cat, the universal symbol of magic, showing another side to her – an interest in the unknown and the occult.

The Queen of Wands is a determined leader and independent thinker, who uses creative energies to bring abundance. A good communicator, if at times a little blunt.
