Queen of Wands — Tarot of the Immagination

Frenec PinterArtist: Frenec Pinter

 

I wish I knew which queen this image portrays. She should be strong, confident, a bit manipulative with her amazing amount of positive energy and charisma, and determined to get what she wants. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t recognize her even if she was currently famous, let alone historically famous. Anyone less clueless than I am?

 

I did not ask a question today. I hoped the card would inspire me to write. Unfortunately, I don’t think I like the Queen of Wands right now. Not this one. I don’t like how she looks at me as if she’s better than me. I don’t like her clean-ness, her white-ness, her lace and perfect hair-ness. I prefer the New-Age Tarot’s big-foot, multi-breasted, four-armed, three-faced, double-helix-bodied Queen of Wands who dances on an Earth of arms and eyeballs. She makes me feel so normal.

    Hi! I read your journal regularly and it’s fabulous! Can’t wait to get that deck in my hands, love B &W decks I tell ‘ya!

    Anyway, I know your baby is due soon and I just want to say I hope you have a glorious birthing experience. Looking back on the videos of the births of my two children I have to say…I just didn’t say anything clever or sweet when they were born. Except for my daughter who kicked the crap out of me from the first time I ever felt her move. I said, “So you’re the one whose been kicking the shit out of me!” Yeah, that was real nice to hear on video I tell ‘ya. I blame it on the drugs. So, you might want to give some thought to what you will say when you see your little bundle of preciousness. And yes, they are sooooooo precious. There is nothing on Earth like the smell of a newborn. It goes away after a few months so make sure you enjoy it. Enough of my ramblings…good luck with the birthing experience…there is nothing like it…luck us!!!

      Thank you! I can’t imagine anyone has enough brain left say anything clever after giving birth! You wrote on the day my baby was born & I haven’t been here enough to notice until now, almost a month later. I hope you & anyone who reads here are patient enough to wait for me to have the energy to write regularly again.

    The woman on the card is Sissi a.k.a. Empress Elizabeth, thought to be one of the most beautiful women in the 19th century.

    Here is the Wiki article:

    Amerigo Folchi did a whole tarot deck about her:

    Congrats on the baby!
