Queen of Wands: The Queen of Wands is a court card in the Minor Arcana set of the Tarot. The Queen of Wands is said by some to represent one's basic instinct. She sits upon a throne decorated with lions facing opposing directions, a symbol of fire and strength. In her left hand, on her crown, and behind her are sunflowers, symbolizing life, fertility, joy, and satisfaction, and her right-hand holds a wand with one small sprout springing to life. A black cat sits at her feet, a sign that while this Queen is bold and outgoing she is also in touch with her shadow self – the darker, lesser-known side of her being.
