Today on Biddy Tarot: Connecting with the goddess to understand the tarot queens

Very excited to work with the fab ladies at Biddy Tarot, appearing on their blog this month. Writing this was a fun and fascinating journey into the goddess Vesta as well as Minerva and Venus: three gals with helluva punch!

Rider Waite Queen of Swords

As personifications of female archetypes, the Tarot Queens can be much like the goddesses. Relating a Tarot Queen to a goddess with the same traits can be a very effective way to deepen your understanding of these cards.

Get to know these multi-faceted goddesses, and you can uncover insights and connections with the Tarot Queens in easy and exciting ways.

As earthly beings of the minor arcana, I look upon a Tarot Queen as a priestess of the chosen goddess; one who walks with the goddess in her everyday mortal work (just like you can!).

Queen of Swords (Minerva, goddess of wisdom and war – not particularly in touch with her emotions but gets the job done!)

Queen of Cups (Venus, goddess of love and beauty – unashamedly feminine and in-touch with her feelings and desires but totally in control of them!)

Queen of Pentacles (Vesta, goddess of the hearth fire – an ultimate Earth Mother, pragmatist and provider)

Queen of Wands (the hotter side of Vesta, goddess of the hearth fire – magnetic, passionate and charismatic).
