The Queen of Cups represents water in water, she is the purest manifestation of
the soul of the waters. Thus she represents pure emotion, passion, feeling, never
influenced by judgement or purpose. She is loving and affectionated, a warm-hearted
mother and a tender friend, looking into the depths of the heart.
On the darker side, the Queen of Cups lacks the stability of the Earth, the will of Air and Fire. Water in water is all passivity and has no powers of its own, but makes a perfect transformer of any other power coming along. So she is susceptible to all kinds of influences, her unstability might let her appear unreliable and inconstant.
At its worst, the precious qualities of imagination and flowing fantasy might turn out to weakness and thoughtlessness, turning in any direction that any wind may blow, getting lost in a dreamworld of irreal fantasies.
