The Queen Up system blends various metaphysical teachings and psychological concepts to empower women to navigate life’s most challenging situations. In part one, the basic tenets of the system are reviewed; part two introduces us to the four Tarot Queens that embody the essential qualities for creating wholeness, and readers will be taught how to access their energies as well as look at common obstacles; and part three provides a year’s supply of weekly exercises to help readers develop intuition and manifestation.
The Queens serve as a symbol of the potential of every woman. Angela Kaufman helps readers unlock this potential to harness and express their dream lives.
“As the mama of the Warrior Goddess movement, an archetype of the divine feminine that I believe is much needed today, I’m passionate about helping women find their inner strength. This is why I so appreciate Angela’s Queen Up! and her powerful re-visioning of the tarot’s queen of wands,swords, cups, and pentacles as a way to guide women to harness and express their inner potential. Just as we need more warrior goddess women, we need more women who have claimed their archetypical queen: their sovereignty, wisdom, and strength.” —HeatherAsh Amara, author of Warrior Goddess Training
“Queen Up! takes a fascinating new approach to the ancient art of Tarot. By focusing in great depth on just four cards, the Queens in the different suits, she shows us how we can use the cards not just to understand our lives, but to transform them.” –Rachel Pollack, author The Fissure King—A Novel In Five Stories, Seventy-Eight Degrees of Wisdom, and others
“Queen Up is a delightful exploration of the self using timeless methods. Kaufman has beautifully given readers a tool for increasing their confidence and reaching their goals that is both spiritual and practical. When reading this book, I feel like I’m in a helpful, insightful and fun coaching session with Kaufman. A great read!” –Courtney Weber, author of Tarot for One: The Art of Reading for Yourself
