Queen of Wands

Queen of Wands Frideborg Tarot

“Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.”
~ Marilyn Monroe

The Queen of Wands (Water of Fire) is the most magnetic of all the courtiers. She combines feminine charm with intense sex appeal in a steamy and irresistible mix. She is inevitably found in the spotlight, never doubting for a second that this is her rightful place.

When she chooses a spiritual path, she rises quickly to higher levels of consciousness, thanks to having a natural aptitude for soul alchemy and blending/harmonising male and female energy within. Being divinely powerful comes naturally to her.

She is aware that she has all it takes to succeed in any area she puts her mind to. She does not rely on others but others are quick to help because they are pulled in by a certain ‘je ne sais quoi.’ She takes what she wants and sometimes what she wants is the husband of another woman. Oops!

She likes the glitz and the bling the world has to offer (think ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’). If ill dignified, she can allow herself to be used as a poster girl for the worst kind of materialism. Her Shadow can pretty much be defined as the soap opera drama queen.

Her divine gift is that she teaches women to be OK with who they are – glorious, powerful and sexy goddesses!

Basically, she doesn’t give a shit what you think about her and therein lies her true power.

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Affirmation: “I am charismatic and radiate sexual magnetism. I own my power and do not conform to society’s expectations of women.”

Queen of Wands Prayer

Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you for the goddess in me. Help me celebrate my feminine power and magnetism, and take my rightful place in the world. So mote it be!

The Queen of Wands in Love and Relationships

Although the Queen of Wands can be a total sex kitten, it’s more apt to think of her as a lioness most of the time. This Fire sign lady is not a good match for the faint of heart.

A natural-born leader, she is more likely to do the opposite of what she is told. You’re meant to follow her, get it? She doesn’t consciously try to overpower others but her natural charm and charisma makes her exude power from every pore.

Pros: She has the ability to make you forget about your mundane troubles and want to start reaching for the dreams and possibilities instead.

She is warm and charming.

Her libido is very healthy as she has well-integrated masculine energy.

She likes to manage stuff and can often be found running her own business.

Celebrations are on the menu pretty much weekly. This Queen is all about celebrating life in general and success in particular.

When you walk into a room with this Queen on your arm, you can count on heads turning. She loves a grand entrance with lots and lots of (jealous) attention.

Cons: Details are not her cup of tea. She’ll have the vision and the great ideas but she’ll often try to palm off the actual work on somebody else.

She does have a bit of a short fuse as well as a penchant for drama. She literally is the ‘drama queen’ of the pack.

She has a natural and usually benevolent self-centred nature which makes her very good… sometimes too good at looking out for number one.

She can be very blunt about your shortcomings if you get on her wrong side. In this area, the Queen of Swords still has one up on her though.

If she’s got it, she will flaunt it and attracting male attention is her life blood so it helps if you’re not the jealous type.

Type of date she prefers: Anywhere glamorous and fabulous, darling. If you can impress her by name dropping, by all means go for it. Please don’t take her somewhere where she can’t wear heels!

She may not be fastidious or particularly house proud herself but she likes things to sparkle.

‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ as performed by Marilyn Monroe is very Queen of Wands.

How to seduce the Queen of Wands: Does it sparkle? Bring it. Wine and dine her. Don’t be afraid to spread it on thick. She knows she’s worth it.

Her best match: The King of Swords, because a) he has a brilliant (sparkly) mind and is often well-connected with higher-ups, and b) he’s the least likely to blow up in a jealous temper tantrum.

Her worst match: The Knight of Pentacles as a) he’s very possessive and b)simply not ‘sparkly’ or quick enough.
