The Queen of Cups is attuned to the intuition and emotions. She gazes meditatively at a beautiful golden cup with angel arms which she holds in her hands. Her feet tiptoe into the waters surrounding her throne which is adorned with water nymphs. This queen rules and is ruled by the heart and her compassion knows no bounds. In its reversed position, we feel the emphasis is on self-care. Perhaps this is the time to nurture your own emotional health before others, soothing over any harshness coming from self-criticism or disappointment.
