cartomancy. If you are fortune telling using ordinary playing cards, June 5 is a Queen of Diamonds day.
The Queen of Diamonds is your card if it is your birthday on June 5 and it is the card that rules the day of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, so I thought it seemed highly appropriate to talk about what the Queen of Diamonds symbolises.
If you draw any court card in a fortune telling spread, then it often represents either the person the reading is for, or someone who is important in relation to the situation. The Queens all symbolise powerful women, and the Diamond court cards often indicate people with light coloured or fair hair.
The suit of Diamonds is often connected with money. If you are trying to divine the future using playing cards and you turn up a lot of Diamonds, then it is quite possible that plenty of money is going to come your way. In this respect, the Queen of Diamonds can represent a very wealthy lady. Queen Elizabeth II is among the richest women in the world.
But diamonds are also known for being an extremely hard substance, and the suit of Diamonds represents this too. The Queen of Diamonds is one tough lady. She is capable of making difficult decisions and is definitely a good person to have in a position of authority. She is strong-willed, but is nevertheless charming and graceful - just like our own Queen.
