NOTE: Reversed cards now interpreted as Upright – with greater emphasis.
All Queens are linked to the element of Water. Unlike the Kings, their motivations spring from emotions rather than pure intellect. Which is not to say the Queens lack strength. Everything they do is intensely personal, and they know how to make their emotions work for them. The Queen above all feel, but are not emotional. Therein lies the difference.
The Queen of Pentacles is practical and knows how to make much of very little; and because of this, this Queen’s never in a state of want. Having strong ties to the Earth, she should be viewed as a gardener of sorts. When you draw the Queen of Pentacles, it means you’re planting seeds with the expectation they’ll grow into something beautiful. You’re thinking about the future. The Queen of Pentacles is encouraging you to nurture your hopes and dreams. Enjoy the fruits of your labors today and envision the future as a lush, vibrant garden.
(The Queen of Pentacles is known as the Queen of the Thrones of Earth and is aligned with the feminine aspects of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. She represents fertility, home and hearth, nurturing, practicality, and pleasure. This Queen is sensual, lusty, and her sense of touch acute.)

In addition to the regular methodology I use for drawing my Daily Tarot Card, I’m starting to draw a SECOND card from the top of the deck (curiosity mostly, but also to compare the two):
Ace of Wands – with greater emphasis (Fire)
This card was last drawn on 7.26.2017
Aces herald new beginnings, and the Ace of Wands points to a new source of passion and excitement in your life.
