Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“I did two versions of this painting because I was not satisfied with the first one. I feel this one is truer to the symbolism and feeling of this card. I chose a very blue palette with a pop of orange to represent wisdom and compassion.”
At the edge of the water a queen sits, a huge leviathan threatening to surround her. But the ocean rises up to meet it and protect her, giving us a glimpse of the cloudy sky above. She is unphased, shells float around, and she reaches for one shell in particular. Her cup is not open, sharing her emotions with the worls – her conch shell is lit with a golden, warm glow. Fish swim peacefully around her, symbolizing the unconscious mind and intuition – the thoughts of the Queen come from within.
The Queen of Cups is influenced by intuition and intellect, but decides with her heart. Because of her deep connection to her own emotions, she has great compassion and understanding of others.
