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.
A painting of the Past, Present and Future. The whimsy girls remind me of archetypes. I have always been interested in the study of Jung. One of the girls represent where I have been in the past – the word that best describes the past is ~ambiguous. While the present word would be ~anxious in various part of my life, I look to the future where I could be ~adventurous.

Art from a ~Journal Jam~ Class with, Effy Wild. The ~Wonky Byrd~ is from, Willowing Arts on YouTube. At ~Journal Jam~ I have been experiencing many of these whimsical ladies. Each lady I sketch and then paint are lovely with their own personality. Their face colors are different, the eyes vary – some are as almonds and others large, dominating the entire face. Hair styles are unique and tiny lips are always very colorful. The ladies are slowly becoming a family of sorts – sisters, cousins, aunts, great aunts and grandmothers. They are taking on a life and place of their own and I enjoy creating them.
