This queen sits strong upon her throne, wielding a very sharp blade. Beware the double-edged sword in this card. This queen has a dogged determination to meet her goals and have what she wants. The positive to this is that she has great energy and she devotes herself completely, not giving up. The downside is sometimes she fights so hard to get what she wants, only to discover it wasn’t in her best interests after all.
Perhaps she should be more willing to flow with circumstances, allowing her higher wisdom to lead. This card reminds us that when something doesn’t feel right, no matter how much we feel we want it, it’s better to let go and re-channel that energy in directions more aligned with your higher good.
Position 1: Background | Present Concern
You are very objective and analytical. This is a time where you are called upon to use these capacities to help you take action and move in the right direction. A time for discernment, objectivity, and decisiveness.
Position 2: Your Drive and Motivations
You want to be at peace with yourself and to keep up the initiative in a new endeavor, cutting away anything that may stand in your way.
Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious
Unexpected events leave you feeling out of control, disappointment or fearful of the future. Delays that cause frustration, not accomplishing a goal as soon as you would have liked. Don’t allow impatience to sabotage you.
Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
Sometimes you need to relinquish the ego, the part of you that feels it has to have control or answers at all costs, when you get so caught up in this you don’t leave room for your Higher Self to lead. Work to sever bad habits/beliefs that may hold you back or keep you stuck on outgrown ideas or plans.
Position 5: Course of Action
Try to stay emotionally detached from situations, and let things come as they may. Be willing to part with all that no longer serves your highest good, even if it means a temporary sacrifice. This ability to relinquish what is outgrown opens the door for better opportunities going forward.
