tarot of the old path-queen of cauldrons
The Tarot of the Old Path Queen of Cauldrons is dressed in a richly decorated indigo pearl costume, as blue is the color implying Her rule over the element of water.
An ermine trimmed cloak implies dignity.
The Queen of Cauldrons represents an attractive gentle person who has expressive eyes and a generous sensual mouth. On her lap is a peach, implying that she possesses good qualities of character.
The Three peaked design on her crown suggests the three states of the Goddess: maid, mother, and crone.
The hand supporting the Cauldron has on it a sapphire ring, which again implies water, and the cauldron is reflecting all that is around her suggesting that this gentle woman is sensitive to all that is around her.
The primary meaning of this card, is about a woman who is at ease in any situation and is kind, warm, and gentle of heart. She may have brown hair, and hazel eyes, and is interested in the or talented in the arts. An attractive and romantic person who is touched by all she sees.
The Thoth Tarot-Queen of Cups, represents the Watery aspect of Water; it's the power of reflection and reception. That is why there seems to be no Queenly Human form in the card, yet subtlety it is there, behind the reflected dazzle.
thoth-queen of cups
The Queen of Cups is an archetypal "mirror" which reflects the nature of the one "looking" at Her. She rules in the zodiac from the 21st degree of Gemini to the 20th degree of Cancer.
To see the Truth of the Queen of Cups is hardly possible, as she not only reflects the nature of the observer, but she is also associated with dreaminess, tranquility, and illusion.
In the Thoth tarot, she is enthroned on still water, and bears the Lotus cup of Isis, and the Crayfish in a shell cup; crayfish represent the regenerative state of water as they shed their shell to grow larger.
The endless curves of light robe and veil her and the sea upon which she is sitting, reflect her almost unbroken image of the image she represents. Being the perfect agent of reflection and reception, she is unaffected by what she is transmitting.
The chief pleasure of this archetypal personality is to lead and attract others. Such a person seems not to have a great character of their own as they are reflecting those around them. Of course, to do so requires a skill in receptivity.
If ill dignified, all these bright reflective and receptive properties are distorted by her own inner turbulence and everything that passes through her is refracted and distorted. Her characteristics depend on the influences which affect her.
Such a woman, if not ill dignified, would easily be receptive to a man's wants and reflect his passions, the perfect reflection of her husband. However, her inner fantasies and dreams will be unaffected by him.
She is the "Moon Pool" of the Oracle or Seer, as she is receptive to their seeking and reflective of forms past, present and future. Since She is extreme in surface reflectivity, most of us fail to see the depth of Her but there is more than one side of a Mirror and Her dark, depths, called the Dark Isis or Dark Goddess, should not be sought by the frivolous. For only well-trained initiates of Gnosis, can find their way back from such a journey into the "Dark Womb"! Here is the Abyss of the Dark Night of the Soul that is on the "other side of the Mirror" that reflects form and the nature of the observer. On the dark side and/or non reflective side, there is no reflection only endless reception. Here, we lose our self-image and become the Darkness observing itself!
Personality wise, the Queen of Cups personality will often be very popular, as she seems to "fit in" were-ever she goes.
