Every woman has a unique "love style" in relationships. Your way of relating affects everything, from who you pick as a partner to how you argue ... to how you make up! Using tarot to become more familiar with your own romance behaviors can help you navigate the tricky waters of love when they get choppy.
The court cards of tarot -- pages, knights, queens and kings -- describe behaviors that most people express. Of these, the queen cards in particular offer the most insight into how women tend to express themselves. They are divided into four suits also associated with the elements: swords/air, wands/fire, pentacles/earth and cups/water. Each queen rules over her realm with confidence and a sense of mastery.
So, which queen describes your own love style?
Queen of Swords
You are intelligent and a good communicator. In relationships, you approach conflicts from a place of logic and rationality. More interested in brains than brawn, you want someone you can talk with -- who will appreciate your intellect while sharing your interest in ideas and philosophies. Be careful not to let your mind rule too completely over your feelings, however, as this can lead to coldness and detachment. As you learn to integrate your head and heart with one another, you'll find that your relationships will deepen and become more substantial.
Queen of Wands
Passionate and charismatic, you enjoy adventure and excitement in love. Though you may have legendary battles with your partner, the making up makes it all worth it! You're looking for a mate who can match your pace and keep you on your toes, since boredom equals death in your world. You are learning how to be patient and committed in love, persisting even during down times. Practice makes perfect, so the more effort you put into your relationships, the better they're bound to be.
Queen of Pentacles
As the earth queen of tarot, security is important to you. You want a partner who is grounded, practical and successful. Too much drama is a turn-off for you in relationships, so you tend to go for more "normal" types. You're most interested in a stable, committed partnership with long-term potential. You can avoid boredom and stagnation in love by being open to trying new experiences -- and in the process, you'll break out of old ruts that may have been holding you back.
Queen of Cups
You are romantic, imaginative and dreamy in love. You want a heart connection with your partner more than anything else, and enjoy spending time together exploring art, nature, music and spiritual activities. If you're single, you're looking for a mate who will inspire your feelings and awaken your spirit. As you develop a practical and realistic way of determining who is a good match for you in relationship, you'll find more fulfillment in matters of the heart.
