Queen of Cups says mastery of emotional integrity – the ability to always look on the bright side of things, utilizing sensitivity and relying on intuitive ability rather than common sense. Perception – the ability to see ahead and believe. To own ones feelings and express them without blame or judgment, empowering others and allowing them to express their feelings honestly and responsibly. Blending imagination and action into creativity and social usefulness, by directing the imagination into valuable activity. Molding the creative force, without suppressing it.
Love gives meaning to her actions and the realization of her goals, for it is the joining of conscious to feeling. Knowing what you want and taking the steps necessary to get it – always acting with an awareness of love. The vision of life as “joyful” can only come as a gift – love can open you to receiving that gift and recognizing that it exists. Once intelligence is joined to love – you return that gift by taking the vision and making something real and lasting from it.
