The Queen Archetype

In creating ‘The Queen Archetype’ card I have found new meaning with the seven feminine archetypes that I find seated at the imaginary table.

I haven’t paid attention that is full of information about the queen. She is the keeper of confidence, perhaps of leadership, part of alliances to be made and the ability to attract the finer things throughout life.

I have ignored the needs and wants of each archetype at the table and the seven are rather unhappy. If given the proper attention to each type they could be a help to one another.

I feel because I am the reclusive type of person hearing the queen’s complaints have not been heard and at times ignored. The queen’s needs are a bit scary for me – that need for power becomes over whelming as I don’t think of these concepts in my day to day experiences. I haven’t the need for either power or control. Power is granted by a people – it isn’t lasting. Power should be used for the greater good of the people or it becomes an illusion and compromises the integrity of the queen.

Power and authority can be additive and very hard to let go of. It almost seems to become a huge give and take or lose oneself entirely.

Through this short study I have concluded ignoring the short comings of the queen can cause her shadow side to emerge and become more intense. She knows her integrity could be in danger.

It is well to keep a balance and avoid the struggles for all who take a seat at the table.

  1. Love these thoughts about power. I grappled with power for a long time before I wrapped my head around the idea of personal sovereignty. It’s more about having power in my own life through the application of good boundaries than it is about having power over anyone or anything. It’s been liberating to recognize that my life is my Queendom. The image you shared is absolutely gorgeous.
