A person can begin to criticize himself in front of everyone, show dissatisfaction with life. She feels that she is not good enough compared to others.

It is impossible to condemn for this, but it will also not work to support the impulses. The querent takes the position of an intriguer, an evil ruler. His well-being depends entirely on the failure of other people. The fortuneteller is trying to build happiness on the ashes of other people’s hopes.

As a significator of a person, the Queen of Wands denotes young girls with blond or brown hair. They have a toned physique, tanned skin. The card has an astrological correspondence with the zodiac sign Aries. Vivid examples of the Arcana are Victoria Beckham, Reese Witherspoon, Keira Knightley.

These are very stubborn personalities – if such a person thinks of something, then in the end he will definitely achieve his goal.
The reversed Queen of Wands also shows popularity and fame. But now a person is beginning to be surrounded by a halo of gossip and secret conjectures. For girls, the fallen Arcana in the opposite form will denote promiscuity in relationships with men. Excessive assertiveness and non-trivial behavior will lead to a loss of interest from the stronger sex. An example is talented dancers living out their lives in a roadside bar. They have the attention of others, fans and fame, but there is absolutely no respect.
