The Queen of Wands of the Minor Arcana is said to represent one's basic instinct. Her appearance says you must think of the consequences of what you do, and be sure to focus on what will get you moving and how to do it.
The black cat shows that luck favors her, as black cats are viewed as bringers of good or bad luck. The nature of cats may also show that she has tamed her darker impulses yet understands and follows her own instincts, thus representing her self-aware and independent nature.
As always, though I remained faithful to the components of the original Tarot deck, I took great liberties in interpreting them.

Very nicely done; she certainly has a regal demeanour.
I've toyed with the idea of adding the minor cards to my tarot, but its such a huge undertaking I've balked at the prospect; i salute your dedication!
Thanks, Joe, but nothing to salute. Once I assemble, jiggle, or kit bash the components, they're easy to make because all compositional restrictions are removed. Also, it's one image slot I don't have to conceptualize.
But I do appreciate the sentiment and thank you for it :-)

Very well researched. Like the clean and clear composition, which all of your cards show.

I've never really studied the Tarot, but your interpretations are arousing my curiosity... In addition to being beautifully done.
Oh, the explanations are incredibly deep, rich, and detailed. Every component of any image, even the desert in this one, has accompanying explanations. My admiration for the art and craft of readers has grown. They literally must have every card memorized since typically only eight or so are drawn from a shuffled deck. And because a drawn card may emerge upside down, the volume of explanations is effectively doubled because 'reversed' cards have their own meaning. Thanks, Rod :-)
