Queen of Wands Reversed Tarot Card Meaning

As a person:

When the Queen of Wands is reversed, she is a more passive person. Someone who is happy to lurk in the shadows and not be the center of attention. She is a push over and will gladly follow other’s to prevent herself from standing out in the crowd. She tries her best not to make waves and hang out under the radar. When frustrated or angered, the Queen of Wands reversed may lose control over her anger and become excessively aggressive towards others for no reason. 

As an Energy:

The Queen of Wands reversed shows you have reached a place of self-respect and confidence. Knowing yourself on a deep level, and you are clear on your personal truth and belief systems. You know what you stand for you and you are not easily moved by the opinions of others. Having also defined what success means to you, even if it differs from others’ definitions.

The Queen of Wands reversed can also suggest that you may be more introverted than usual. Instead of being the social butterfly and centre of attention, you prefer to linger on the sidelines and watch what is going on. That’s perfectly okay – honour your needs and feelings and don’t push yourself to be extroverted and ‘out there’ when you don’t want to be. You may also feel called to spend more time alone so you can connect with your inner self and hear your inner voice.

If you have lacked in confidence, the Queen of Wands reversed invites you to bring your energy and attention inward and focus on rebuilding your sense of self and your resilience. You may have handed your power over to others by paying too much attention to their thoughts and opinions. Now, you need to bring your awareness inward, so you can hear yourself and access your personal strengths and talents. Discover who you are and be courageous in expressing ‘you’ in everything you do, even if it is different from what others expect of you.
