Learn what each tarot card means in our tarot card meanings list.
In contrast to the paternal King, the Queen of Pentacles is the quintessential symbol of Medieval interpretations of femininity. Maternal, compassionate and nurturing, the Queen does not indulge in as much maternal wealth as her male counterpart, given the more humble throne on which she sits.
In addition, the throne does not sit on concrete, but on dry land, with lush greenery on the background. This suggests an attachment to the concept of “Mother” Earth.
Her wealth is focused not on the sustenance of one, nor singular, personal achievement, but on truly altruistic goals such the caring for one’s subjects, familial loyalty, and even piety. As such, getting this card is a moment of great inspiration.
The ultimate companion of the King, it tells you not to be selfish with your own riches, and to actually work not just for your own benefit, but for everyone else’s. But it doesn’t just translate to riches too.
Since the Queen is also considering a life-bringing card, you also need to do what you can to spread positive vibes by keeping morale high and cheering others on. After all, if everyone else wins, then you also win.
Getting this result is a great thing for you in many ways, as it promises financial stability, smooth teamwork and the fruit of collaborative labor. At this point, you definitely have a solid grasp of managing expenditures and saving money.
You’re easy to work with and you’re definitely bringing results and raising morale for your team. Now, all that’s really left to do is to keep radiating all of this helpful energy onto other people.
By keeping yourself grounded and always being sensitive to your surroundings, you can rest assured that things will be stable in the coming years.
Out of all the life-giving cards in the Minor Arcana, the Queen of Pentacles is the most potent. This is because it takes on the form of a truly maternal queen, surrounded by plants and wildlife, with a gentle hold over her own pentacle.
Romantically, this means that you’re secure with the partner that you have. Not only do they wish to spend an eternity with you, they will do everything to protect you in every way.
You are extremely lucky, and you ought to hold on to that luck by not betraying your partner’s trust.
The Queen of Pentacles in the upright position endorses the wisdom of proactive spending. This means actually managing your budget without getting swayed by the trivial and the trendy.
Like the maternal queen in the card’s image, it tells you to not get too fixated on the here and now, but instead focus on future expenses such as marriage or even gathering enough capital for new investments. By asserting more control over your natural drive for spending, you are in fact making yourself that much richer by giving yourself more resources for even more choices later in life.
This outcome could be interpreted in both a positive way and a negative way. In all likelihood, you’re still a capable financial manager, able to think of ways to spend without hurting your bottom line, but it can also signify an inability to connect with others.
You maintain the majesty of the crown, but you may be detached from your people. There are many reasons as to why this is the case: social anxiety and existing misunderstandings can all get in the way of establishing rapport.
As such, you might want to try and sort things out with the people around you, especially if you have personal problems with them.
As is the price of potency, the Queen of Pentacles in its Reverse position is the most awful because it shows extreme immaturity on your partner’s end. Rather than giving the relationship life, you partner may be too self-absorbed to care about your own welfare.
In fact, this even suggests unfaithfulness, overdependence and deception. It’s highly possible that while your partner is making you smile, you’re being made to buy unnecessary things just to satisfy their material whims.
You love them dearly, but you know relationships of this kind often go down in flames.
A reversed queen means that you are caring for the wrong things. Too attached to materialism, you often find yourself unable to care for your wallet-- because there isn’t anything in the wallet! In matters of wealth, it is never good to spend on a whim.
Proper financial planning is and should be your best friend, because it essentially allows you stability much later in life: you’ll have an excellent retirement, a loving family (or otherwise a group of people who will happily take care of you in old age) and everything you can ask for.
