Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Portable Magic: Twelve of these sixteen elemental pairs, along with their compound manifestations, appear in a table at the back of Aleister Crowley’s Book of Thoth (286), where Crowley associates them with the triplicities of the zodiac. They are part of the general Golden Dawn knowledge that Crowley inherited from his membership in the Order. They are not explicitly linked in this table of the triplicities with the court cards, but it is evident that Crowley intended such a link, because he mentions the Princesses (Pages),which are omitted from the elemental pairs in the table. Elsewhere in the same work (23), he lists all sixteen elemental pairs beside the court cards, without describing their compound manifestations.

Sometimes, looking too closely at a thing will prevent you from seeing it at all.

Tarot Beginners Guide: The Queen of cups is a trusted lady, probably a beloved wife and/or mother, someone who has the benefit of experience through the years. She is honest, faithful and wise, with the benefit of foresight to help her through. The presence of the card can indicate a stable marriage and domestic happiness, or that good, sensible advice will come from a lady with these qualities. The card can also suggest a need for us to look into things more deeply and to develop an inner vision. Should the card be reversed, an emotional sacrifice may be necessary, or deception may occur in personal relationships. We are warned not to dismiss advice given. The card could represent a feeling of needing to be loved and wanted, which is missing in our lives, together with a feeling of inconsistency on the part of others. We should guard against anything immoral or dishonest.
