Red in Tooth and Claw, Tarot Queen of Fire
Red in Tooth and Claw, a fitting epithet for Tarot court card Queen Fire, Queen of Wands.
The original painting for Tarot Queen of Fire, Queen of Wands, She, oil on canvas, 72 inches by 36 inches, available at Saatchi Art
She is grace and beauty, exhibiting great attractive power and command, kind and generous, a Tzarina. If opposed she is a vengeful tigress, strong willed ruthless and savage. Red in tooth and claw.
This court card represents the human machine personality type represented by the tarot card Queen of Fire.
Taking the impetus of the Knight of Fire she directs his energy into images that objectify desires.
Radiating composure in the face of adversity she expresses decorum in exuding her unique identity.
As a personality type she is an Empress or Tzarina through whom inherited authority from previous generations emanates.
Beautiful without being flamboyant, she teases traditionality with allusions of originality.
While often radiating the delicacy of a rainbow, if opposed she can express the aggression of a lioness in relentless pursuit of her thirsts.
With this Queen as our aegis we capture the personality formula supreme for birthing ourselves through membranes of mediocrity and baggage into any future we can perceive for ourselves.
The Tarot of the Morning Star depicts these qualities through the simulacrum of Sumarian goddess Ishtar but she could be equally depicted as Ancient Greek Pallas Athena springing fully armed from the brain of Zeus.
Queen of Fire rules the third decan of Pisces through to second Degree Aries, Ten of Water, Two of Fire and Three of Fire.
