This version of the Queen of Batons follows the Etteilla tradition, where she is a woman of the country. She is inspired by the mother of the traditional ballad “Three Little Babes,” waiting at home to welcome her children whenever they may return. Her baton is a distaff, a tool for crafts as well as a symbol of the domain of women. Thus, this card can represent a spinner or textile artist.
Her positive qualities are warmth of spirit, hospitality, and attentiveness. Her negative qualities are pride and difficulty letting go.
