This is a woman over the age of 35, with a great deal of earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) in her chart. This could also be a man who is in touch with his feminine side. The inversion of this card throws the earth element out of balance. This woman can either be stuck and controlling, or completely untethered.
If this is you, is your hand too open or too closed? An open hand cannot control what is happening on the physical plane, including your own body. If that resonates with you, you might have to resort to making lists and scheduling time to remove clutter, exercise, and prepare good food. A closed hand might find its contents spurting out from between the fingers. If this sounds more like you, it’s time to do something spontaneous. It will feel really strange, but you might find yourself sleeping better at night.
The Queen of Pentacles only interacts with the Emperor.
Emperor: Any cards from the suit of Pentacles, combined with the Emperor, can indicate an offer of a position of authority. This position is likely to involve finance and carry heavy responsibilities.
The Suit — Pentacles, Coins, or Diamonds
The pentacle is a symbol of earth magic. The coin is wealth and wages. The diamond is a symbol of wealth, pulled from the ground and refined by human hands into something enduring and elegant. This suit represents all things related to the earth. It represents the work of our hands. It represents those conspicuous signs of wealth that show us and our neighbors how successful we are, but this is merely material wealth. We can pass this on to the next generation, but it is worthless if we choose to bury it with ourselves.
Rank — Queen
Traditionally, queens represent women over the age of 35. Energetically, the queens represent a wise and nurturing ally or formidable enemy. Queens may indicate a period of inner growth.
There is nothing to fear with an inversion. Mary K. Greer explains in her book, The Complete Book of Tarot Reversals, that an inverted card may be interpreted in one or more of these twelve ways:
- Blocked or Resisted
- Delayed, Difficult, Unavailable
- Inner, Unconscious, Private
- New or Dark Moon (if you are reading cards from a round deck)
- Breaking Through, Overturning, Refusing, Changing Direction
- The Opposite of the Upright Meaning, or Lacking
- Misused or Misdirected
- The Upright Meaning Backward
- A Rectification or Cure
- Magical, Unconventional, or Humorous
