The Queen of Pentacles, like all the court cards, often stands in for an actual person in your life. In that regard, she would represent a woman, likely with dark hair and dark eyes. However this is not always the case, as these cards can also represent energetic influences in our lives. The energy of the Queen of Pentacles is normally quite archetypically feminine; hearth, home, motherhood. This card can indicate that you will be spending time, money, and energy on your home, getting it to be more comfortable. This is a good thing, provided you don’t take on too much debt. People will be looking to you for insight and/or advice. You will be able to help them, if you are so inclined. This is a time period when you can get a lot accomplished. Regarding work, you are likely to make great headway now. A woman with dark hair and/or eyes may play a significant role in your working life; if so, know that she is an ally for you. In the context of love, this is a very feminine card, and also points to strategy, particularly for those who are not currently involved with anyone. The strategy to find love is the stereotypical feminine one; don’t chase it, make yourself available, but do not be desperate to bring someone new into your romantic life. When the time is right, that will be made abundantly clear to you, and you won’t have to do back flips to make something come about. Be upbeat, and know that you have many things in you which are worth loving. The Queen of Pentacles is an excellent omen when it comes to money. Your prosperity level is very likely to be increasing. Don’t hesitate to spend some of your new-found wealth. Saving is important, but enjoying your life when you have the means to do so is also important. Share what you have when you can. It’s critical that you trust yourself. You may not see things spiritually the way everyone else does, but your belief system works for you, and that’s what’s most important. When it comes to our spiritual lives, although it’s important to listen to the input from others, ultimately we must make our own decisions. If others don’t understand your decisions, that’s their problem.
(Known also as the Queen of the Thrones of Earth and aligned with the feminine aspects of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, the Queen of Pentacles represents pleasure, practicality and sensuality. She brings a bounty of riches, health and steadiness to those who have struggled and passed through a long period of deprivation.)
