Your card today is the Queen of Pentacles. Queens, like other court cards, can be taken as actual people or they can represent inner parts of your personality.
The Queen of Pentacles symbolizes nurturing, prosperity and fertility. If she is a person in your life, this Queen is usually a woman born under an Earth sign such as Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn and you will likely recognise her as a wife, mother or a supportive, sensible, down to earth lady. Her home is always full with children, pets, plants, family and friends.
This Queen is both a wonderful parent and has a good head for business and budgeting. She can multi-task like a pro. She will make a lovely home and she knows how to nurture a family with healthy home-cooked meals and all the domestic delights. When you feel down or unwell, the Queen of Pentacles will make you feel much better.
She is hearth, home, motherhood and a kind and generous soul. As a result of her connection to the element of Earth, she loves gardening and the outdoors, in fact, her continued happiness relies on maintaining her connection with Mother Nature. She is very conscious of her physical health and she favours the more natural methods of healing the body. She loves herbal and holistic remedies. Of course, a nice glass of wine or other treat never goes amiss either.
Perhaps you know someone like her and this card comes as a message that she is close by you and important right now. Or perhaps the message is it that you will you become more like her? If this person does not represent an actual person, then this card invites you to consider and perhaps heal the Queen of Pentacles aspect of your own personality. Psychologists call this aspect of ourselves, the ‘inner parent’.
The inner parent is the aspect of us that takes care of ourselves. Are you a good mother to yourself? Are you taking good enough care of yourself right now? Do you nurture yourself with healthy food, good rest, exercise? Do you set healthy boundaries? How do you talk to yourself: are you critical or kind? How do you take care of yourself financially and in relationships with others?
The spiritual message of this card is that you are worthy of the love and being nurtured and you can give these things to yourself now. You may not have had perfect role modelling from your parents, but you can still access this warmth, this energy and this love from your higher power, however you understand it: the universe, your higher self, your Creator. You deserve prosperity, love, peace, security and stability and you can have this in your life now.
