Corrected entry: It could be by mere chance but the four main housewives; Susan, Bree, Gabrielle and Lynette all display characteristics of Tarot Card Queens;each being of a different suit. They are the Queen of Wands, Swords, Cups and Pentacles.Susan is most like the Queen of Swords. A card of an independent woman who can be bitter, malicious, jealous and is often divorced - which Susan is. She like the Queen of Swords should also not be underestimated.The Queen of Wands, a red haired woman who is creative, warm natured, has a responsible reputation but dislikes Independence in others which can make her tyrannical. This is obviously Bree as she wants to run her kids lives.Gabrielle is most comparable to the Queen of Cups. As she can be vain, immoral (cheating on Carlos) deceitful (lying about her affair) and constantly requires attention. On the plus side she is very imaginative, and as seen in the second series loyal and devoted - backing up the Tarot connections.Lastly Lynette is most like the Queen of Pentacles. This Queen represents a woman who has a head for business and is motherly and very caring. On the negative side she can be possessive and mistrustful. Clearly Lynnete because of her high position as boss and the fact that she has lots of kids.
