The elements of the image, of course, refer to the qualities of the card. The image shown is bright and vibrant. The large sunflower represents satisfaction and fertility. The sprouting wand symbolizes mastery and life. The lions etched into the throne behind her speak of further ‘strength’ and ‘nobility’. The black cat sitting near the Queens feet points to her being in touch with her ‘darker shadowy side’. It can also show she has the ability to protect herself.

She’s always on the go, juggling interesting projects and ideas. The Knight of Wands often fails to achieve his goals. He lacks preparation and tends to bore. The Queen has the determination, experience and determination to succeed all her goals. She achieves most of them, and does so with feminine warmth..
The Queen of Wands in the 'Present Position' affirms all is (or soon will be) good and vibrant. In the 'Future Position' the Queen of Wands says that obstacles will be overcome.
Queen of Wands (Reversed) General Meanings Explained: The reverse of the Queen of Wands might mean blockage. It can also bring reverse aspects to the qualities we associate with an Upright Queen of Wands. A reverse card is more likely to represent internal issues than external.
So, an upright Queen of Wands takes on many goals and succeeds. A Reverse Queen of Wands can mean you are taking on too many projects at once. Are you overwhelmed by the amount of projects you're tackling?
Or it might mean the effervescent extrovert Queen has become more inward looking. Do you feel tired? Are you lacking in confidence and becoming introvert? Have you experienced too many recent failures or defeats?
A reverse Queen of Wands could point to an unusual level of disorganization. Do you lack the ability to ‘get things done’. Or is your normal warm leadership giving way to pushiness/bossiness?
Queen of Wands (Upright) Love & Relationship Meanings and Outcomes: Was the Queen of Wands drawn in connection with romance questions? 'How he sees me', 'How someone feels about you', 'Does he love me')? Well the card is a good sign. If the target of the card was yourself (how do they feel about ME?)They see you as flirty, exuberant, glowing... and adores you. They partly bask in the light you bring to all occasions and events. They value you for getting things done, being caring funny and warm. If the target of such questions was your potential partner (how do THEY feel about me), then they clearly like you a lot, but might often be wrapped up in their own projects and ambitions (you will need to give them space).
Queens have so many things on the go, and so many admirers, that they can fail to set aside enough time for their partner. Remember this!
The Queen of Wands as love feelings means much the same. Another person has placed you on a pedestal and worships you. Or you adore someone else.
The Queen of Wands drawn for a question that relates to ‘looking for love’, is a very good sign. The Queen represents warmth, courage, charisma and more; and others will see this in you (if you are the target of the card in the question). You may already be receiving subtle hints and signals from admirers around you.
My ‘seeking love advice’ to you would be to look around for existing admirers you’ve not noticed. Also, put yourself out into the world, connect to more people, and you are likely to meet that special person. If you ‘think’ you’ve seen signs that someone likes you, and you know you like them, then you should be bold.
The Queen of Wands for someone already in a relationship is a positive sign. It denotes a present (or outcome) of warmth, understanding and fun. You do many things together. You are on the same social and sexual wavelength, and exude ‘togetherness’. There is also the possibility of a forthcoming pregnancy!
Queen of Wands (Reversed) Love & Relationship Meanings and Outcomes: If you are already in a relationship, the Queen of Wands (reversed) can mean the person you are with is being too pushy. They could be very controlling and/or deceitful. They might be seeing other partners behind your back.
It might mean that you or your partner are spending too much time on other issues and projects. Are you spending enough time together?
The Queen of Wands in Reverse can show feelings of low confidence in the relationship. There might be dissatisfaction with the direction it's going.
If you are single this card (reversed) might mean you lack the courage to go out and find someone. Even if you met that person you would not be able to summon the warmth and self-esteem to attract them. Take time to rest, do things you enjoy. Allow your confidence space to rise. Place looking for love on the back-burner for a little while.
The Queen of Wands (reversed) drawn in connection with romantic questions is not a good sign. Questions such as: how he sees me, how someone feels about you, does he love me), do not bode well. It suggests the person you admire might have secret negative feelings towards you. They might be domineering. They might juggle several lovers at once. They might be nice people but lack the confidence to return any overtures of yours. Take a reading again in a month’s time. Discover if the situation has changed. In the meanwhile make no-commitments or advances on that person.
Queen of Wands (Upright) Career and Work Meanings and Outcomes: The Queen of Wands is a good sign in a career reading. It indicates that you are, or soon will be, getting lots of things done. You will be up for the challenge that new task presents and will tackle it with optimism and energy. You will be able to multi-task with ease. You win praise for the way you juggle your workload and deal with customers. Successful completion of goals is likely.
In some Tarot readings, the Queen of Wands might refer to a more mature woman, who will help you succeed in business. She will be the one with the energy, experience and skill to help you get things done. She has the social skills to lubricate interactions with colleagues or clients. She might be a manager who will mentor your advancement in a company, or an office manager you hire, or even a PA.
Queen of Wands (Reverse) Career and Work Meanings and Outcomes: The Queen of Wands (reverse), drawn here, could mean you are (or will be) tired and lack confidence in your work role. It might mean you have taken on too many tasks and can’t devote the necessary time to be successful with any of them. My advice to you would be to suspend the lowest priority tasks. Then lower your social schedule. Try to delegate some of your projects. Make yourself the time and energy you need to recover.
Another interpretation for this card is that a mature person will enter your life. She might hamper your career advancement.
