Intro: Queen of Wands Tarot Card Meaning - persuasive energy

Tarot Alley uses the Rider Waite type of deck for our meanings, symbols, interpretations, etc.

When determining the Queen of Wands tarot card meaning, you should consider that it’s a Wands card and a Queen. The Suit of Wands represents energy and inspiration. Queens represent persuasion, nurturing, and subtlety.

In this way, we can determine that the Queen of Wands represents a subtle but persuasive energy. While this is typically used in a helpful manner to bring people together, it can be (or appear) manipulative.

Take a look at the Rider-Waite Queen of Wands displayed to the left (or above).

What is your first impression?

Where is she looking? Why? How does the cat belong?

There’s no right or wrong answer here, just your interpretation.

Ask Yourself:

  • To what extent am I able to convince people to do what I want them to do?

The Reversed Queen of Wands

How you read reversals is a personal choice. You can ignore reversals and read them as if the card is upright (this is what I often choose to do) or you can interpret reversals as variations of what they would mean upright. There are 3 common ways to read reversals: as a negative interpretation, as an opposite interpretation, or as a block on the upright interpretation. Check out How to Read Reversals for more information.

Typically, a reversed Queen of Wands represents selfish persuasion. The reversed Queen of Wands uses her powers selfishly. Instead of bringing people together, she wants to bring attention to herself. Examples include:

  • Distracting others from the goal
  • Being easily distracted
  • Using negative or unhealthy behaviors to bring attention to yourself
  • Disrupting group activities

Specific Interpretations

Specific situations are the general interpretation (from above) used for a specific situation (love, career, etc). There is no need to memorize these (or even look them up) if you understand the general interpretation. However, here are some basic interpretations for some specific situations:


What’s happening? The Queen of Wands pays attention, watching for arguments, issues, and motives. When arguments or issues occur, make an effort to understand all sides and find the common ground.


Get people involved in projects. The more the merrier, after all. But don’t just assign tasks, ask for investment. Make sure people give their approval for everything they’re involved in.


Take a deep breath and focus. Repeat whenever necessary during your day.
