The Queen of Cups represents those personalities born between October 24 and November 22, the sign of Scorpio.  The Queen of Cups can be nicknamed Miss Intensity!  There are three water signs in the zodiac.  Natives of Pisces are like the liquid form of water –  deep, emotional, fluid, dreamy, and susceptible to peer pressure.  Natives of Cancer are like ice; they may appear aloof, cool, and withdrawn, even though they are very sensitive to underlying currents.  Natives of Scorpio are like steam in a pressure cooker!  They have powerful likes, dislikes and opinions.  Their steamy side also shows up in the form of intense sexuality, desire, and lust. Scorpios will move in quickly on whatever or whoever it is they want.  They love to be involved in long, passionate and emotional relationships but can be jealous or possessive.   At their worst they can be cruel, vengeful, secretive and self-centered.  Even though, Scorpios are known to forgive, they will never forget. 

The good news is that Scorpios are hard-working to a fault, resourceful, know a lot of people, and make good networkers.  They are also determined, skillful, magnetic, energetic, intelligent, talkative romantics and good Kissers!  Their worst quality is that they can be just plane trouble! 

Scorpio is the only sign of the zodiac to have two symbols.  The scorpion represents the earthbound qualities of Scorpio.  However, once Scorpio overcomes his earthly desires, he has the  ability, much more so than any of the other signs, to soar to great spiritual heights as represented by his other symbol,  the eagle.

    so I want to know how that can possibly be by reading the story of the queen of cups she is the mother and protector of her children and her moods revolve around the cycles of the moon and the moon is the sole ruler of the cancer zodiac I’n just asking

    • Hi Michelle. Thank you for reading my blog on Egyptian Tarot. Please note that Egyptian Tarot differs in many ways from traditional tarot. One of the major differences is that each card is assigned to a particular sign, planet, or season and these assignments are often quite different from traditional tarot. You are absolutely correct about the Queen of Cups in traditional tarot, but in Egyptian Tarot, the Queen of Cups is ruled by the sign of Scorpio (see upper right hand corner of the card), a water sign, indeed, but a far stretch from the sign of Cancer or the Moon. So, of course, the interpretation of the Queen of Cups in Egyptian Tarot is quite different. Thank you for the question.

      Thank you again for the reply and clarification about the queen of cups and its correlation to Scorpio. The interesting thing is through my meditations Scorpio energy has showed up the most. Perhaps that’s affirming it. Peace and blessings
