Letters From the Thoth Tarot
Queen of Cups
In the Book of Thoth is says, "Her image is of extreme purity and beauty, with infinite subtlety; to see the Truth of her is hardly possible, for she reflects the nature of the observer in great perfection."
The great Mother Goddess, water of water - reflection of reflection. This Queen is so popular and friendly because she shows us, ourselves, when we look at her. Weird connection, but in the old TV show Babylon 5, there was a character named Kosh, a Vorlon, who no one had ever seen because he was always in a special suit - but one day he did leave it and anyone who looked at him saw what they believed was an Angel, in their own belief system. That reminds me of this Queen. (and shows that yes, I am a huge nerd, you knew this)
According to Crowley she is, "the perfect agent, patient, able to receive and transmit everything without being affected herself." She is imaginative, kind, dreamy and good natured. On a day this energy comes to us, we should take the time to reflect on the qualities she embodies: love, emotions, beauty and compassion. Before we can reflect these qualities outward, we need to give ourselves permission to accept and love ourselves.
