The four court cards for the Queens, found in traditional tarot decks, carries the energy of the four elements:

Earth– Queen of Pentacles
Air– Queen of Swords
Fire– Queen of Wands
Water– Queen of Cups

I’ve developed four magickal oils that carry the essence of each of these Queens, and I’m posting spells here to use in conjunction with 1) the tarot card connected to each Queen; 2) the oil created for each Queen; 3) corresponding herbs and stones; 4) candles in colors corresponding to each Queen and her element:

Queen of Pentacles- green (Earth)
Queen of Swords- yellow (Air)
Queen of Wands- red (Fire)
Queen of Cups- blue (Water)

Queen of Pentacles Magick
Magick for the Queen of Pentacles will be heavy and grounded in matters of material issues such as money, prosperity, and opportunity. The magical energy from this Queen will also encompass issues of the physical body, its health and well-being. Her connection is to the element of Earth, and this is where her energy is deeply rooted.

Spell:
To Manifest Your Desire
We’re talking about a physical manifestation of something that you want, whether it be money, a new house, a better car, or some other physical item you long to have. We’re also talking about manifestation of something you want, but something that is not made of molecules and atoms, whether it be a new job, success with an endeavor, a dream vacation, or something else that is very real, yet not an actual physical object.

Correspondences for Manifestation Spell:
Day: Thursday
Planet: Jupiter
Moon Phase: waxing to full
Colors: Earth/green; Jupiter/purple
Oil: Queen of Pentacles Oil
Herbs: Earth/patchouli (included in the oil);
Jupiter/cloves, sage, star anise
Stones: malachite, mystic topaz, peridot
Incense: patchouli

Other items:
1. an image of your desire,
or a written explanation of your desire
2. a green candle
3. a fireproof container

The Method:
Gather all the necessary items together for this spell, including an image of what you’re going to manifest, or a piece of paper upon which you’ve described exactly what it is you’re going to manifest. It’s recommended that magick be cast within a sacred space, but this is not a written rule. If you’re not comfortable casting a circle, at least sprinkle a little salted water around your work area, or smudge the area with sage or sandalwood incense.

1. Place the fireproof container in the center of your work space or altar.
2. Dress the candle with the Queen of Pentacles oil and place it in the container.
3. Sprinkle the herbs you’ve chosen for this spell around the candle in the container.
4. Place the stones on your altar, also arranging them around the container.
5. Light the candle & your incense.
6. Hold the image or the written spell in your hand; close your eyes and still your mind, ground and center. As you’re holding this object in your hand, envision it in your mind. Envision it in your mind until it is as real as it would be if you were looking at it. Envision it in your mind until it is as real as it would be if you were experiencing it.
7. Open your eyes and immediately touch the paper to the candle flame. Drop it into the fireproof container with the candle and allow everything to burn down.
8. Once everything has cooled, bury the candle wax and ashes from this spell in the earth upon your property.

Queen of Swords Magick
Magick for the Queen of Swords is often intangible, moving through the mediums of thought and communication. She is connected to the elemental realm of Air, and it’s her magick that touches us with a spark of creativity, mental fortitude, and self-expression.

Spells: Communication, Messages, & Ideas
1. Talk to Me
When communication between you and someone within your circle has either petered out for no apparent reason, or stopped abruptly due to disagreements and a falling out, it’s important to get that communication flowing as soon as possible to repair the relationship and reaffirm your bond. There’s a very easy way to do this.

Take a dab of Queen of Swords oil on the pointer finger of your dominant hand and anoint the bottom of a water glass, moving your finger in a deosil (clockwise) circle, round and round and round she goes.

Fill this glass with a beverage of choice and serve it to the person you are trying to re-establish communication with. The flow of conversation usually begins before the glass is empty.

2. Magickal Messages
If there’s someone you wish to get a message to, there’s a magickal way to do this. When all other avenues have failed, either because communication is being deliberately blocked, or they are just not listening, write down exactly what it is you have been trying to tell them. Anoint this paper with Queen of Swords oil and tie it outdoors, somewhere where the wind will catch it, preferably in a tree, but a fence-post or a porch rail will work too.

If your message is brief, empower this spell with even more ‘oomph’ by writing this message on the Queen of Swords tarot card. Punch a hole in one corner of the card and use a yellow thread or narrow ribbon to tie the card to a tree limb.

3. Ignite Your Muse
If you are involved in a creative venture and get stuck for ideas and inspiration, anoint a clear quartz crystal point with Queen of Swords oil, place it in a small pouch with the Queen of Swords card from a tarot deck, and sleep with it beneath your pillow. You will wake the next morning filled with inspiration in the form of dreams, ideas, and images.

Queen of Wands Magick
The Queen of Wands, connected to the elemental realm of Fire, rules magick of fiery unbridled passion with intensity of purpose and a ruthless pursuit of justice. It is her magick that will add swiftness to your spells, giving them focus and accuracy, and the Queen of Wands oil can be added to any spell crafting for this purpose.

Spells:  Passion & Justice
1. Light the Fire
And this is exactly what you’re going to do, literally. You can do this several ways. You can either do it in a big way and light an outdoor bonfire, or a quaint and cozy fireplace fire, or you can even start a very small flame in your cast iron cauldron or some other small and very fireproof container. (Let me re-emphasize the words “very fireproof”.)

At least three pieces of the wood or sticks that you add to this fire will be anointed with Queen of Wands oil. When you get your fire going sufficiently, write down on a piece of paper just exactly what aspect of your life needs more passion or energy, or exactly whom it is you wish to ignite with passion. Touch this paper to your lips, and throw it into the flames.

If your message is brief, write it on a Queen of Wands tarot card to add more power and energy to this spell.

2. Sweet Justice
If you are confronted in life with a situation that wreaks of unfairness, prejudice, or underhandedness, make a mojo bag aligned with magickal energy to right a wrong, a mojo bag to bring justice.

To this bag add:
1. a stone of apache tear,
anointed with Queen of Wands oil
2. three thorns from a flowering bush
3. a cat’s claw, if you have it
4. a small slip of paper on which you’ve written
the name(s) of those you believe are being nasty, or you can play it safe and be very general about this. Rather than naming names refer to ‘those who are being unfair’, and leave it up to the spirits to dole out justice in the right place.
5. Queen of Wands tarot card

After all of these ingredients have been added to the mojo bag, spit in the bag and tie it shut. Keep the bag in a safe and secret spot.

Queen of Cups Magick
Magick connected to the Queen of Cups will be the most elusive and ethereal of all. Connected to the elemental realm of Water, this Queen’s energy will rule your dreams and visions, throwing open the door to magickal realms, infinite possibilities, and emotions.

Spells:  Spirituality & Intuition
1. Spirit Guide Speak
If you wish to connect with your Spirit Guide, if you wish to receive a message of wisdom, insight, spirituality, and secret knowledge, you’re going to create a mojo bag that you will place beneath your pillow. Every night, for seven nights in a row, you will sleep with this bag beneath your pillow. Every morning, you will jot down in a small notebook any dreams, unusual thoughts, or visions that came to you on the previous night. On the morning of the eighth day you will wake, and you will have the wisdom, inspiration, direction, or answers that you seek.

To create a mojo bag to call your Spirit Guide, add the following items to a small blue or white bag:

1. a stone of moonstone or rose quartz,
anointed with Queen of Cups oil
2. a pinch of mugwort
3. a marigold blossom
4. a talisman for the goddess, such as a Virgin Mary pendent,
or a pendent connected to a pagan deity
5. Queen of cups tarot card

2. Third Eye Sight
To help you open your Third Eye chakra, and thus increase your psychic ability, anoint a blue candle with Queen of Cups oil, roll it in crushed mugwort, set it in a fireproof container, and light it.

As the candle burns, take a dab of Queen of Cups oil on the pointer finger of your dominant hand, and touch it to your third eye.

After the candle has burned itself out, fill a crystal bowl half-full of water, adding the remains of the candle and ashes, and set it outdoors where it will catch the light of a full moon. Place a Queen of Cups tarot card beneath the bowl.

These are only a view examples of the endless array of magick found within the tarot deck. You can use cards for money spells, employment, relationships, and anything else that touches your life and raises your level of awareness. Use the cards on a personal altar for inspiration, meditation, or affirmations; use the cards to connect with the spirits; use the cards to move energy for magickal practices of all kinds.

It would also behoove you to carefully write down your tarot spells in your tarot journal, keeping them safe for future reference.

  1. Thank you so much!

  2. I loved this article, especially since it is about the queens. But as a side question, what does one do with a single tarot card of their own creation? Is it wrong to create and keep a single card?

    • Hello, Fontess!…1) There’s a lot you can do with a single tarot card, whether it’s of your own creation or not. I include spells using tarot cards in both of my tarot books. 2) Why would it be wrong?…sounds like an excellent idea to me.
