Psychological Meaning: Freud believed that the king and queen represent the dreamer’s parents while a prince or princess represented the dreamer. She may stand for the unconscious, intuition, nature and the instincts. Jung saw royal figures as representations of animus (the male principle) and anima (female principle). The white queen from Lewis Carroll’s Alice through the Looking-Glass (1827) runs continuously to stay on the same spot. Some authorities claim she expresses the way the earth is in a continuous state of upheaval in order to stay much the same.
Mystical Meaning: Carl Jung recognised that the strange writings of the alchemists were in fact symbols for the integration of the personality. The queen personified the feminine forces within the psyche, the unconscious feeling for life.
