I was looking through one of my Tarot journals and discovered that I wrote "Inherited Power" for the Queen archetype. (Unfortunately, for many years, my Tarot journal wasn't a centralized destination, but scribbles in any tablet I could find!).
I'm pondering this phrase now--what I meant by that, for example--and thought I'd ask you how you see the Queen archetype, especially as reflected in the Tarot.
Queen of Pentacles, Queen of Cups, Queen of Swords and Queen of Wands--how does each of the four Tarot Queens differ from one another? Is their power always "inherited"? How does their power differ from the Kings both archetypally and within a reading?
I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences on the Queens of Tarot!
