Deep feeling. Nurturing.
The Queen of Cups embodies the feminine side of the water element, and stands for sensitivity, intuition, mediality, and willingness to make sacrifices. She is the expression of helping and healing powers as well as introspection. As such, she is the ruler of our unconscious powers of the soul, the good fairy and wise sorceress within, the clear-sighted interpreter of our dreams, and the prophetess who penetrates the fog, She is described as dark and mysterious because the sources of her wisdom flow in secrecy and defy the grasp of scientific reason.
