Queen of Cups
Queen of Cups is a card used in Latin suited playing cards (Italian, Spanish and tarot decks). It is the Queen from the suit of Cups. In Tarot, it is part of what tarot card readers call the "Minor Arcana".
The card depicts a mature woman of fair-complexion and golden hair who holds a lidded cup or chalice. She is described as a model of loving virtue, one who is purer of heart than most, a loving mother, and a loyal friend. The inverted card may warn the querent of a false lover or a deceitful friend or companion who may have a secret; someone who pretends to be pure of heart but is actually treacherous and manipulative.
