Tarotka Minor Arcana: Mistress of Stars

Mistress of Stars/Queen of Wands
The Mistress of Stars is associated with maturity, dynamism, Fire, and Water. Fire gives her energy, Water means she has strong intuition and emotions. The impression one has upon meeting the Mistress of Stars is that of power. She has a powerful personality and a powerful will. This is a very capable woman, self-governing and sure of what she wants in life. She cannot be swayed from her goals, no matter how strong the opposition turns out to be. Often she takes others’ problems into her own hands to see them solved more quickly. Her forceful nature is attractive to many, however, and she is often found at the center of a group of friends. She is a sensual woman, vivacious and spirited, and her power draws others to her. She is a fierce lover and a fierce enemy – beware of crossing her.

At least one tarot card I’ve seen has Queen Boudicca on it – and it’s a pretty good comparison. This woman does not knuckle under and she does not bow. She can be a force for great good or great evil, but she will be great, either way.

Yikes. That forceful woman up above is just as forceful, but she’s high strung and domineering. She shoves her way into situations and causes more trouble than she solves. She’s not invincible, but she can act like it, and this can quickly lead to her burning herself on her own ambition. Once that happens, she turns even nastier. The inverse Mistress of Stars is a bitter, jealous woman, easily offended and quick in her wrath. She’s judgmental and quick to punish for those perceived flaws in others. She’s disorganized and doesn’t necessarily look ahead. She refuses to tolerate anything that will constrain her, even when she really ought to consider if it’s a good idea anyway. She has powerful emotions and a powerful will just the same as above, but they are turned to nasty and selfish ends, and she will likely destroy everyone she is involved with – be they foe or lover.
