Upright Queen of Wands as a Person

If the Queen of Wands appears in a Tarot spread as a person, that means that this person is  gregarious, popular, and extroverted. People are naturally drawn to this social butterfly, regardless of whether or not they are considered conventionally attractive. If they are beautiful, they may be misunderstood, as people assume they’re superficial. In reality, this person can actually be quite selfless, philosophical, and there is certainly a depth to them. This card is astrologically associated with the element of Fire. Because Fire carries a masculine energy, this card carries an active, assertive energy. We all have a little bit of both energies expressed in a balanced way, regardless of which gender we identify as.

This person is sexy in appearance and sensual in mannerisms. When this queen is drawn upright, it can usually indicate somebody who is always “feeling themselves”, but in a healthy empowered way, not a narcissistic way. You might notice that they will incorporate spiritual elements into their look, such as chakra jewelry.

Like Aries, this is somebody who is unapologetically proud of who they are. What you see is what you get. Even if they are blunt, they know how to communicate in a way that endears themselves to others. Like Leo, this person knows how to have fun. They are glamorous, entertaining, and excellent hosts. Like Sagittarius, this person is a big picture thinker. This is a deep and spiritual person.

They infuse their principles and beliefs into their career. They may make a point of hiring diverse candidates. They always have a higher vision in mind.

The Queen of Wands as a person represents someone who makes you feel included and welcome. They are very social beings, but never elitist or cliquey. Because the Queen of Wands can be flamboyant and tend to put effort into her looks, sometimes people can forget what a spiritual being she can be. Her spirituality, influenced by Sagittarian energy, gives her depth and a great understanding of humanity. They know their worth, and they know they deserve to be treated like royalty, but they would never make others feel inferior. This is the person who believes in lifting others up. They know that bringing people down does not elevate their own position.

Reversed Queen of Wands as a Person

If the Queen of Wands reversed appears in a Tarot spread as a person, that means that this person is manipulative, angry, and overly competitive. When drawn in the reverse, this is the quintessential “drama queen” card. Because this is a Minor Arcana card, some of these traits will not be inherent aspects of their identity. If they are behaving unfavorably, they might just be going through a temporary phase. It may be a behavioral pattern that they can still unlearn, if they choose to. Good or bad, nobody is perfect, and people can use their free will to change for the better.

For physical characteristics, the Queen of Wands reversed as a person represents someone who is superficial, vain, and competitive with their looks. This is the type of person who will hurt themselves in the process of keeping up with others. They don’t care if they have to go in debt if it means that they can keep up with the Joneses. They probably have unhealed childhood wounds. Unfortunately, they are too arrogant to admit that they might have a problem, so they’re unlikely to seek help.

For emotional characteristics, the Queen of Wands reversed as a person represents someone who is mean-spirited, fake, jealous, and selfish. They typically exhibit the feminine shadow sides of the Fire signs. This person struggles with controlling their temper. They may be the type who has to win at all costs. They may also be highly superficial. Instead of truly connecting with others, this person strategically chooses who they want to befriend based on the other person’s looks and social status. They may be self-righteous and stubborn. They think that they’re always right, and they will often talk over you.

For careers, the Queen of Wands reversed can represent someone who works in the same field as the upright Queen of Wands, but they may not have the positive traits that enables their upright counterpart to be successful. They don’t have the determination, the sincere idealism, and the required leadership skills. While an upright Queen of Wands will usually lead by example, in the reverse, they will tend to be bossy and power hungry. They may have a terrible attitude and treat people poorly. This person is the office gossip. Mostly motivated by attention, they may attempt to hog the spotlight and take credit for others’ work. If this is a coworker, keep your ideas to yourself.

The Queen of Wands reversed as a person represents someone who makes you feel like you’re constantly involved in their drama. You know this person has a side to them that you do not want to piss off. You can just feel it intuitively, or they have shown that side of them to you. If they’re not outright combative, they may be passive aggressive. They know exactly how to trigger you. This is the “friend” who will subtly flirt with your partner, and then accuse you of overreacting when you call them out. They will manipulate and gaslight you into thinking everything is your fault. They’re your worst frenemy.
