The meanings of the The Queen of Cups and The Devil cards

The Queen of Cups means

The Queen of Cups can be thought of as a card that indicates a sense of emotional security, calm, intuitive and compassionate nature.

Queen of Cups Upright Meaning

This card traditionally portrays a sensitive, vulnerable, omniscient woman who offers unconditional love to those in need, as she represents the energy of a Queen. There is no doubt that she is an empathic person — sometimes to the point of being annoying. As a result of her caring nature, she is very sensitive to other people’s emotions and needs as well.

When this person is responding to the needs of others as well as identifying her own best interests, she sometimes has difficulty identifying her own interests. As a result, she may appear slightly unfocused or perhaps overwhelmed due to the fact that she is filled with “spirits” in her life. In addition to representing the Grail Queen of the Grail, she is also known as the Goddess of the Family.

Queen of Cups Reversed Meaning

In reversed form, the Queen of Cups suggests that you should stop any efforts you are making to dull your pain or distract yourself from it. The fact that you are looking the other way is not going to help you anymore. There is no attempt to rationalize away or control the situation in either case.

In order to be emotionally honest, you must be open-minded. It is important to be honest with yourself, and with others who may be involved in what you are going through. You will not be able to release the hurt if you continue to anesthetize it and prevent it from coming to the surface. The use of coping strategies that rely on distracting yourself from reality will only serve to make the problem more ingrained in your mind.

Queen of Cups Advice Position

In this position, the Queen of Cups encourages you to be generous, kind, and forgiving towards others. Ensure that others are able to get what they want by supporting their ability to do so. However, it is important to remember that you have a fine line to walk in caring for someone, as with any position of caretaking. You do not want your loved ones or teammates to become complacent or dependent, as if they can take your support for granted with little or no consideration for your needs.

Cultivate an awareness of love as a freely given and freely received experience. By doing this, you will be able to clarify the important distinction between receiving energy and taking it in the process. Be careful that your willingness to give is not misunderstood or mistreated as a weakness if you are misunderstood or mistreated.
