|Queen of Cups
24" x 36"
|One of the most often-seen images of the Queen of Cups is of a woman
seated at the edge of the ocean, with her feet or the hem of her gown
touching the water, which represents spirituality and the emotions.
My vision of the Queen is nearly the opposite. I picture her as a woman
immersed in spirituality and the emotions, rich in psychic energy, a true
water queen. However, she also recognizes the importance of staying in
touch with the physical world.
In my version, the Queen of Cups appears as a mermaid who takes time
every day to leave the water and ground herself, and experience the world
outside the ocean she calls home.
