Birthcard Astrology: The Queens

“The Mother of Intuition Card”

All Queens are service oriented and receptive in nature. The mental nature of clubs inclines the Queen of Clubs to deal in the publishing trade, secretarial work, or in the more aware ones, psychic work. Being Queens, they are always aware of their place in the royal court and resist anyone trying to mold them in any way. Their Karma card, the Three of Hearts, as well as the Five of Clubs in their Venus position, tells us that indecision about love and friendship makes it hard for them to find lasting happiness in these areas.

Their mental gifts are abundant (Ten of Spades in Mercury) and whether or not they realize it, they are always receiving knowledge from the “other side”. Their Ace of Spades in Jupiter promises many rewards if and when they follow spiritual or psychic lines of work or pursuits. They have a deep heritage of knowledge from past lives that is always available. The Queen of Clubs is also known as the “Mother Mary” card and many of them have one or more “children” for whom they must make sacrifices in their life.

“The Philanthropist Card”

Like some other cards in the deck, the Queen of Diamonds has much indecision about values (Three of Diamonds Karma Card). Although they are in the royal suit of money, they are often worried about money and have some difficulty in managing it. Queen of Diamonds are known to be charming and enjoy the finer things in life. Often they spend beyond their budget and this adds to their financial worries.

Their Three of Diamonds Karma Card speaks of indecision about what they want that has them constantly seeking new adventures and sometimes relationships as well. Many of the world’s greatest givers are Queen of Diamonds, though personal relationships are usually difficult because of the indecision about what they want and their changeable nature. If they adopt a spiritual path in life and realize that they have a mission, they can achieve the heights of spiritual realization and self-mastery (Queen of Spades in Neptune). This realization will also dispel all of the problems that they have with money and love. (Scroll Down for More Information about the Queen Personality Type.)

“The Loving Mother Card”

As the “double Neptune” card, the Queen of Hearts has its share of idealism. All of these people possess a certain charm and magnetism that attracts others. They are the “mothers of love” and share this love with all they come in contact with. They either get married and devote themselves to family or get involved in some professional career. These people are very sweet, attractive, sociable and loving.

They can be successful artists and all have an appreciation for art and beauty. Many are aware of and make use of their abundance of psychic ability. As long as their idealism is guided by truth, they can live the life of love and nurturing that is their birthright. When operating on the lower levels, they can be too self-indulgent, lazy, frivolous, and into the “good life”. There are many escapists and alcoholics among the Queen of Hearts as well. Once they set their sights, however, there is no limit to how high they can climb in their work and career. (Scroll Down for More Information about the Queen Personality Type.)

“The Self-Mastery Card”

These people of such power and authority are surprisingly not always found in positions of authority. They can end up in menial positions where they bitterly complain about their position in life and never amount to much else. However, this is the card of self-mastery that sits in the very crowning position in the divine plan. If these people recognize their powerful gifts and take responsibility in their life, they can rise to any heights they desire.

Among them we find some who are the most caustic and hard-driven and others who are the true mothers of the world who compassionately share and teach their wisdom. They should avoid mixing love and money and there is always trouble when legal matters arise. They love to spend money and they hate getting the short end in legal affairs, but they usually do. They do best when they realize their place in the royal family and access the inner wisdom that is their birthright. They are exalted in the eyes of God.

The Queens

The Queen is a very powerful card. She is second in authority only to the King and in many ways is just as powerful, if not more powerful, than he. For this reason, a Queen person, regardless of sex, is aware of a certain power and responsibility they have in their life, one that can be used in positive ways or abused. The Queen is quite capable of ruling the kingdom, but would do it differently than the King. Her rulership would be more service-oriented and she would display more compassion as a rule. All Queens possess wisdom from having experienced so much in past lives. There are always some areas in life they will master with little effort. But those areas will usually not be personal relationships and marriage. Collectively, the Queens possess some of the most difficult love karma of any of the cards in the deck, especially the Queen of Diamonds and Queen of Clubs.

Queens are motherly by nature. Regardless of their occupation, they are mothering people through their work. They excel in helping others nurture and develop themselves. They have a natural desire to reach out to those in need of direction and support at certain stages in their evolution. They take great pleasure in knowing that they have contributed something to another’s sense of well-being. They will feed you and offer you protection. The men and women of this card usually get along famously with children, whether or not they themselves have any.

But one of their faults is that they often hold on to those they love and actually prevent them from leaving the nest when they are ready. This habit comes from their strong identity as mothers. If there is no one to mother, they feel as though their life has no purpose. After all, what is a mother if there are no children to raise? So, when their fears of losing their identity become stronger than their love for their children, they hold back the growth of their children and do exactly the opposite of what they intend.

One challenge of the Queen is to translate this maternal desire to a broader level, away from their own families and onto the world at large. Queens can make excellent counselors, teachers and promoters of good. They can play an instrumental part in helping large groups of people better their lives. They have a lot of natural leadership ability and are able to gather people together for a good purpose. The ones that direct their loving energies toward those outside of their immediate family find much success and satisfaction from their interactions.

This same desire to mother others can cause innumerable problems in their intimate relationships. If they are looking for someone to mother or someone who could mother them, they set themselves up for a very difficult relationship. A co-dependent mire of unclarity and unrealized dreams and needs is often the result of such a union. They invariably attract those who will take advantage of their need to be needed, or they themselves will be uncertain about where their true happiness lies. The Queen is a Twelve, which reduces numerologically to a Three. The Queen of Clubs and the Queen of Diamonds have Threes as their first Karma Card and Threes in Mars. All this Three energy’ promotes indecision and insecurity in personal relationships, but the Queen of Clubs and the Queen of Diamonds have the worst time of it. At least the Queen of Spades and the Queen of Hearts have even-numbered Karma Cards, which gives them much more stability and peace. But even so, all of them have that creative Three urge that can lead to doubtful associations and indecision in their personal choices. Either that, or they attract others who display these characteristics. The Queen would sooner or later wan to use some of her power to have romantic fun and adventure. In doing so, she will often create much uncertainty in her life.

The Queens represent some of the essential feminine archetypes. Whether a Queen is male or female, they will exhibit many of these basic feminine qualities. The Queen of Hearts is the dreamy Aphrodite, the goddess of love and pleasure, who has a love for humanity that is very spiritual in nature. She is the woman all men dream of. The Queen of Clubs is very much a businesswoman and organizer. She is highly intuitive, quick-tempered and usually industrious. But she is also Mary, mother of Jesus, who makes great sacrifices on behalf of her children. She also possesses the highest spiritual gift — intuition. The Queen of Diamonds is the collector of things – usually money and relationships. She enjoys the things of the earth, much like the Queen of Hearts, but she is also very much involved in earning this wealth. She shares a higher sense of values with her children, who are not necessarily her biological children. These ‘children’ may be people that she works with. The Queen of Spades is Martha of the Bible, the tireless worker who knows the value of service and work. She is an organizer supreme and makes a tough boss. But inside she possesses the potential for the highest of spiritual accomplishments – mastery of the self.
