Queen of Pentacles
The Queen of Pentacles appears in a reading when you need practical help, in particular the nurturing kind only a mother or other powerful female figure can bring you. This assistance is typically directed towards business or finances as the Queen is a loving, yet intelligent businesswoman.
This card depicts a woody thicket, rough, beautiful, and full of life. Bits of greenery and flowers are even wound around the border of the card itself! The queen herself sits on a throne settled deep in the dirt of the land, a rabbit by her side. The queen is all adorned in red and green, to signify her deep connection with the Earth. She cradles a pentacle-emblazoned coin with both hands, resting it gently in her lap. She smiles at the coin in a loving, caring way.
The Queen of Pentacles is the mother with a thousand children. She'll be the one to make sure all the kids, the adults, the visitors, and the passing strangers have been well fed and taken care of. She thrives on making others feel secure and safe – in fact, she considers it her greatest prerogative and her highest joy. She isn't happy unless her home is filled with happy faces. She's a versatile woman who will make due with what she is given, never asking for more than what she absolutely needs. Best of all, she is down-to-earth: some may call her simple, but this is only because she doesn't needlessly complicate simple matters.
The pentacles suit is really about the Earth. Of course, the Earth is still a physical thing, so why wouldn't it be included in a suit based around the material world? Our minds so often wander to money and material possessions that we forget where all those things were born from – the Earth itself.
The Queen of Pentacles begs you to dive back down deep, into your roots, to find your joy and happiness. She asks you to nurture those you love and do what you can for those who pass your way. When the world feels complicated, go back to the Queen of Pentacles – she'll advise you to appreciate the simple things in life, and never over-complicate anything when you can simplify it!
Put the Phone Down and Reconnect With The Earth
When you pull the Queen of Pentacles, you'll want to ask yourself a few of these questions. Do you know anyone like the Queen of Pentacles? What can you learn from that person? If not, do you need more of the Queen's positive traits? Could you be more welcoming? Trusting? Mothering? What does the Earth herself have to teach you?
Overflowing with feminine energy, The Queen of Pentacles shows that female power. The Queen cards are not only similar because of their Queen status, but because of the emphasis on caring, loving, and acceptance of others. The Empress is in many ways like the Queen of Pentacles, and this could be because the Empress is deeply connected to the Earth, while the Queen is the feminine head of the Earth-based suit. The Empress thrives off of security, luxury, confidence, and caring – all things she shares in common with the Queen.
What Queen of Pentacles Means for You Today
When you see the Queen of Pentacles in your reading it is a sign that you should take some time to ground your energy and reconnect with the Earth. This is not a metaphor, human beings are like electrical circuits and in the modern age, we have all but lost our connection to the earth. When you jump a car battery without connecting the ground wire, it shoots sparks everywhere and you waste a ton of energy. The same thing happens to us when we lose connection with the earth. Go outside, put your bare feet on the ground and focus your attention into the earth itself. Just a few minutes of consciously connecting with the earth can recharge your batteries.
