The Queen of Pentacles is the type of woman to be sitting in the corner clutching a Chanel handbag. She likes designer clothes, luxury holidays and the best furnishings in her home. Despite her materialism, she has a reputation for generosity.
The Queen of Pentacles advises you to be more generous with others and yourself. Indulge a bit. Buy expensive gifts and go on spa days. Be good to yourself.
When she doesn’t represent the finer things in life, the Queen of Pentacles is the card of realism and being grounded in reality. Are you seeing everything as it really is or as you want to see it? The Queen demands that you come from a factual place.
The Queen of Pentacles also has a reputation for being motherly and good natured. She always wants what’s best for those involved. Therefore, this card in a reading can be reassurance that you or another person has good intentions.
You'll be very happy to hear that The Queen of Pentacles is rather good for love readings, especially when it comes to how your partner is feeling about you. If you want more clarity on how your partner is feeling about you, make sure to check out my Love Tarot Meanings e-book.
There will be times when the Queen of Pentacles appears in a negative reading or Tarot spread positon; this can mean one of two things.
Firstly, it can symbolise the fact that you’re too conservative. You do not let yourself dream up over-the-top plans. You do not think of the best outcomes but the most likely one. For this reason, you run the risk of underestimating the things you can achieve.
Secondly, in a more negative reading, the Queen of Pentacles can symbolise someone who is more concerned with earthly possession than they are with emotions or spirituality. Your attachment to finances, sex and status is preventing you from looking for relationships and opportunities which (first and foremost) make you happy.
The Queen of Pentacle's Historical Meaning
Prior to modern times, the Queen of Pentacles represented a woman who had money or lots of resources to offer. Typically, she comes up in a reading because she is going to offer some of what she has for you. Whether there are strings attached to her gifts will depend on the nature of the reading and the interpretation of the cards proceeding her.
The Queen of Pentacles in a Love Reading
The Queen and King of Pentacles are generally quite exceptional cards to receive in a love reading because they represent the traditional figures of the Tarot. It is rare for the King and Queen not to be married and settled down, so if this is what you’re wanting to achieve then obviously either of these cards are positive omens.
The Queen predicts a love interest has feelings for you if they are single. If your love interest is not single, they are committed to their partner.
The Queen of Pentacles can represent you having the homely life and family the Queen of Pentacles has. While there is no guarantee that you will achieve that with your current partner, the Queen serves as reassurance that you will get that in the future.
It is desirable if your current partner has the traits of the Queen. If they are generous, sexual and like to look after you then the Queen of Pentacles can mean your relationship will go the distance. If not, then you will meet another partner with these qualities.
If the Queen of Pentacles appears as a challenge, negative or obstacles in a love Tarot reading, this can mean that a woman with her traits will meddle in your relationship. It can also mean that your partner has a tendency for over-spending. If you would like to see the impact other people have on your relationship (and your partners intentions for the relationship) these are areas I cover in my Love Tarot Meanings e-book.
The Queen of Pentacles is not desirable if you’re involved an affair. She can mean that your partner is going to remain with their current partner and is not going to leave them for you at any point in the future.
The Queen of Pentacles in a Business Reading
Again, like the King of Pentacles, the Queen is positive for a business or career related reading, especially if she pops up in the future. In general, she means that your business will give you the resources to fund a lifestyle which is more luxurious than you are accustom to living.
If the Queen of Pentacles appears in an action or advisory position, this can mean that you have to be more realistic about your business prospects. Perhaps you are over or underestimating the results you are likely to achieve and you must come back down to earth.
Because she can predict success in business, the Queen of Pentacles is a very good card to get. However, there will always be times when she appears in a negative position or reading. If this is the case, it can mean that you put the cart before the horse when it comes to your spending in your business. The Queen advises that you only invest in products and software which you know you’re going to use, not what you think makes you look like a smart business owner.
