In real life, the Queen of Wands tarot card shows a successful and well-respected woman who isn’t afraid to make tough decisions.

Sometimes, the Queen of Wands card represents a woman who has been ostracized because of her attitude toward sex.
Having multiple conquests is often a badge of honor among men. But there is still a double standard when it comes to women.
The reversed Queen of Wands tarot card can also represent a woman whose boundaries have been violated. Generally, she’s an easy going and generous person.
There are just some lines you should never, ever cross.
But she’ll give you fair warning up front. There’s no subtlety at the Court of Wands.
Antagonize her, and she’ll unleash a firestorm of destruction!
On the upside, if you’re part of the “Queen’s” inner circle and someone is threatening you, she’ll be the person to come to your aid.
Better step out of your way and close your eyes. You might not want to watch.
Her high energy can also make her prone to burnout. If this is the result of constantly having to assert herself, she may lose faith in her own abilities.
She may become withdrawn, bitter, and cynical over time.
Therefore it’s important to recharge your emotional batteries every once in a while.
