She leans forward slightly which makes her appear both composed and curious. It is as if she wants to hear your news or enthusiastically support your proposal. This Queen is comfortable on her throne, and appears confident in her abilities and position in life.

TIMING: Does The Queen of Wands Predict any Particular Timeframe?
🕔 This card is only a timing indication when you specifically asked a timeframe question. For example, if you want to know if something will happen, and when, then you need to draw two separate cards. These are in fact, two separate questions. This is a fundamental principle to understand if you want an accurate tarot reading – and it is core to my teaching in my book Tarot in 5 Minutes.
🕔 Using my timing method, the Queen of Wands is about 13 weeks. If the card is reversed, timing will be slightly longer – so up to 19 weeks.
Karina’s Timing Method:
Swords are days. Wands are weeks. Cups are months and Pentacles are years. Please note this is my personal timing method. Feel free to adopt it (or not).
