You may already know that the Queen court cards in the Tarot pack stand for different types of women – but do you know which one you are? Traditional Tarot meanings talk about different looks, personalities and astrological star signs for the Queen of each suit. For example, The Queen of Wands represents the fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), The Queen of Cups represents the water signs (Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio), The Queen of Pentacles represent the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn), and The Queen of Swords represent the air signs (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra).
All of that is true, but it is also true to say that even if you are an Aquarius, you might find that you are more like the Queen of Cups than the Queen of Swords. That is because we all have the potential to be every aspect of every woman.

Now add up your scores and see which Queen most represents you below!
Mostly A – The Queen of Wands
You are confident, sexy and outgoing – with bags of style to boot! You are quite capable of taking charge when you have to and can easily handle being the centre of attention. When people first meet you, they come away thinking what an amazing, bright, bubbly person you are and your love of life makes you very attractive to everyone. You prefer to keep busy and active and very little gets you down.
When you are not in your power it can manifest in one of two ways – either you can throw your weight around if you think you are not getting enough attention, or you can want to withdraw from the world and hate feeling that you have to permanently put on a show. Either way, when you are off centre everything can get a bit forced. Your naturally strong and charismatic personality can go overboard and that means you can get a bit too bossy and domineering.
You like to lavish your friends with attention and are brilliant at thinking of little gifts that will make their day. You are incredibly loyal and would go to the ends of the earth for anyone you love, but partners and potential lovers had better watch out – if you feel that you are not getting the film star treatment you just might throw a few diva tantrums!
Mostly B – The Queen of Cups
You are loving, sensitive and very understanding. When people first meet you they might not learn much about who you are – but they will feel that they can tell you anything and you could get their entire life story! You can pick up on emotional undercurrents and are especially switched on when it comes to spotting when people are upset. At those times, you find it hard not to offer to help, even if you are not asked. You do let your heart rule your head and want to share the good things of life with everyone.
When you are not in your power you can shut down your heart to keep others at an emotional distance. You can find that you get really down for no reason that you can understand and have a tendency to get bitter if you do not watch out for thoughts that can spiral down into negative patterns. You are as capable of losing your temper as anyone else, but because you are normally such a softie it can come out in a huge burst and leave everyone in stunned silence.
As a friend, you will stick with people through tough times long after a point at which many other people would have walked away. You are a fantastically sensitive and patient partner who asks for much less than she gives. Relationships work best for you when you feel that you are connecting deeply on every level and any partner of yours had better be prepared to open up and share their innermost thoughts and feelings as you hate skating around the surface!
Mostly C – The Queen of Pentacles
You are very practical and down to earth. You are always ready to give your support wherever it is needed and have the magic touch when it comes to creating a warm, secure environment. You can tackle almost any problem that life throws at you with a level head and work through things in a thorough and methodical way. People feel that they can really trust you and that you are always there for them.
When you are not in your power people can sometimes feel that you put too much much pressure on them, even though you just want them to have the best of everything. If things start to change a bit too fast you can become a bit resistant, and when you shut down it blocks off your imagination and creativity. At heart, you like everything to be stable and perhaps a bit too predictable and that can mean you get a bit thrown if things get too wild for your tastes!
You are a friend for life and love being there through thick and thin for your mates. When it comes to romance, you are more of a swan than a player – you are looking for someone to settle down and grow old with rather than drama and excitement and, even though you definitely have a strong sensual side, if that means you miss out on passion, you are quite prepared to make that sacrifice for stability.
Mostly D – The Queen of Swords
Independent, fast thinking and quick witted, you are more than ready to take action when you need to but you like to tackle things with all of the facts at your fingertips. Fearless when it comes to sizing up situations, you can get to the bottom of any hidden power plays going on around you. A wonder with words, you are fantastically witty and people always come away dazzled by your intellectual brilliance. You are more than ready to laugh at yourself as much as anything else.
When you are not in your power, you can come across as just a bit distant and sometimes even cold. Even though you are great at solving problems, you can leave out the human touch and tend to rely more on taking action rather than offering sympathy. You can be a bit of a snoop and again, when you are not in your power, you are quite prepared to do a bit of spying and skulduggery if you feel they are necessary! You can lose your temper too easily and then use your brilliance with words to hurt rather than heal.
You can always make your friends laugh and are more than ready to help them solve any problem they are facing – as long as they solve the problem! Woe betide anyone who comes to you for tea and sympathy once too often about the same thing. You believe in taking action head on to tackle difficult situations and do not understand it when you see others apparently rolling around in unhappiness without doing anything about it. When it comes to love, you want to be equal with your partner and will kick against being expected to play second fiddle. Any partner or lover needs to be as quick witted as you or you will become bored. For you, foreplay starts in the head and any potential partner or long term lover has to keep you mentally stimulated!
