The Queen of Cups, in the reverse position, suggests that you come to understand that being sensitive, empathetic, intuitive, and often vulnerable goes hand in hand with a tendency to suffer from bouts of depression, darkness, anger, or even emotional abuse. The waters of life can nourish, as well as drown, and the deep feelings that cause this Queen to love, can also turn into feelings of utter heartbreak. Being gullible or empathetic doesn’t mean ‘stupid’, and woe to those who confuse the two! Her causes are sometimes superficial, irrational, or unworthy, when she feels herself to be such, and her judgment is often questionable, for she needs love to feel whole, and this can lead to poor choices, co-dependency, addiction, mental illness, or depression. This Queen may retreat into her own fantasies or emotions, and may have a gift for occult studies, the arts, psychology, or the mystical sciences. Learn and believe that "still waters run deep".
