In this card, we see the queen sitting on her throne. Behind her are gray, drab skies, and before her is her familiar, her companion represented in the kitty cat before the throne. This queen is loving and affectionate. She aims to please and longs to receive love and attention in return. Generous and always giving of her time and resources; sometimes this queen gets so caught up in others she loses her own sense of identity. Being a strong role model and example for others requires this queen to be confident and sure of herself first. We cannot give what we don’t have.

Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious
There is a need to find something fulfilling to do but you are unsure of where your “calling” is, or what your natural talents are. Overly dependent on the approval of others to define your sense of self-worth. Fear of how you are perceived by others causes you to hold back.
Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
Often we struggle with our own decisions out of a sense of self-consciousness or feelings of inadequacy. When we are unsure of our life’s mission or what we want to represent it can be easy to become entangled in other people, or in trying to “fit in” as opposed to expressing our individuality. Trying to be what others want only leads to more disappointment. Self-acceptance and learning the value of the distinct offering you have to give to the world in necessary to move beyond these feelings of exclusion and disenchantment.
Position 5: Course of Action
You are being given many opportunities to be a leader in your own life and express your genuine self. Let your light shine and learn to love your unique gifts and allow others to come into your life who will love and respect you for your unique and special qualities.
