The Artist's Concept
I've had a figure standing in this pose in my head for a while, but I didn't have a motive to
draw it, then when this project came up, I decided it was a perfect use for that pose.
To me, the Queen of Wands in her divinatory position is a loving, emotionally sensitive person. She loves nature and her home. I frequently use the Dragon Tarot, and in that deck she is quite elegantly pictured. I created her character, Hikaru Hoshi, (Shining Star) who is of the element of Fire, and she carries a spear which sometimes flames at both ends. Her face is loving, but the stance shows that she can be controlling personality. She stands upon the sunflower, which represents nature and her dominance over it. I didn't use the [Rider Waite design of] pyramids or the black cat for they didn't have a place in my mind.
She has great power to attract that which she wants, and is fruitful in mind and body. Loving nature and her home, she is practical with money and sound in her business judgments. She is also emotionally sensitive. If she does not represent a woman, then she represents these qualities: success in undertakings; love of home and growing things; kindness and generosity.
Reversed: Domineering, obstinate, vengeful, likely to turn suddenly against another without cause. If married, she could be unfaithful.
