Queen of Pentacle in Tarot

For today’s post, I would like to discuss the Queen of Pentacles in the Tarot.   The Queen of Pentacles is yet another powerful female figure within the Tarot.  This Queen is both regal and benevolent!

Being the Queen of the suit of Pentacles she is associated with money and financial security.   The Pentacles suit is at its core most associated with the earth element, and the monetary side of life.   The Queen is a figure that is able to manage her finances well.  She is secure in her financial life, and is a generous woman!

The Queen of Pentacles is able to use her practical knowledge in her financial life.   Her appearance in a reading can show that she is showing favor to the querent.    Like any other court card in the Tarot, this Queen can either represent the querent themselves or a feminine figure in their lives.    Due to her connection to the earth element, she is a woman who feels very sensuous.   She is at home in her own body and feels comfortable in her own skin.   It can be this side of the Queen of Pentacles that could be of more utility in a reading.

If the querent was not inquiring about the financial side of life, then they may read the appearance of the Queen of Pentacles as a sign to become more at home within their own bodies.   I often see this Queen as a figure of self-love, and of accepting your body as beautiful just the way it is!   In this way, she can be seen as a very comforting and empowering figure.    In the Arthurian Tarot, she is represented by the Stone Queen.   In this version, she is the representative of the Goddess of Sovereignty herself!

I hope that you have enjoyed this short introduction to the Queen of Pentacles.   Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
