The Queen of Pentacles

The Queen of Pentacles tarot card

The Queen of Pentacles represents all things fertile, abundant, green and wise.

Whenever you are going through a phase in which your finances or your home life are not what they should be, you should call upon the energies of the Queen of Pentacles to assist you. Now, if the Queen is appearing in your reading, you will experience a level of abundant support like no other time in your life. Here all of the hard work that you have invested, tilling and sowing your metaphorical fields, is paying off and you will get what you deserve. This is something to consider throughout your life, the more work you put in the more likely you are to get something wonderful in return should you choose to allow yourself.

The image of the Queen of Pentacles in the Rider Waite deck depicts a queen who is comfortably relaxing on her throne with carved heads of goat adorning the arms, behind her there is the abundance of ripe fruit and cupid is at her back. All of these symbols represent abundance in their varying forms. The goat is representative of the harvest of milk to make cheese, the fruit is representative of the abundance of the harvest and the cupid is representative of love in its most enriched period of life. The Queen is surrounded by green fields and there is a rabbit of fertility sitting at her side nearby. 

Above her hangs a vine of red roses symbolizing the power she has over her desires. She remains quietly contemplating a pentacle that she holds in her lap. This card is most commonly represented by a woman with black hair and eyes. You are a dependable person, resourceful and you have good instincts and some would say that you are a natural leader. This card is representative of mother and of the provider. You are a channel for practical information. 

The Queen of Pentacles is a woman generous with her gifts. She is a rich and noble soul who is compassionate and charitable, for she has more than she could ever want or need. The cycle of abundance is one that perpetuates itself. You give more to receive more. This may be difficult for you to consider if you are going through a phase of poverty, where you fear where your next meal is going to come from or you are drowning in bills – or both! But the Queen of Pentacles tells you that it is possible to be free of your shackles if you would only allow yourself to give in order to receive. If you do not have money, then give of your time, of your effort. The more that you give, the more you are telling the Universe you have and so you will only attract more and more.

The Queen is masterful in building new worlds for herself by nurturing all of the creative centers in life. She is a talented person who is family oriented, of course, being that she is the Queen of the Home and Hearth. She has the wise sense of business around her and is not afraid of hard work, much like the Knight of Pentacles. The benefits of hard work consistently bear fruit. She sometimes can be non-responsive at times, despite her charitable nature as can you, but over all she is capable of being very happy at work or at home. She has a greatness of spirit that is unquenchable.

The Queen of Pentacles in Love  When the Queen of Pentacles appears for you in a reading of love or relationships, you should expect now is a good time to get yourself into a very solid and good, as well as healthy relationship. You have put your time and effort into improving yourself now, and you are feeling comfortable, confident and ready to really put yourself out there. If you are already in a relationship, then this is a time that is going to be very fruitful for you. Do not be surprised if there is a pregnancy or birth of a child, or a time of new events that bring you and your partner great joy. If you are searching for love, know that now is the time for you to be picky, to find the person that exemplifies who you are. Do not waste time on those that you know are not available emotionally or physically because the Queen will allow you to find a long lasting mate.

The Queen of Pentacles in Health The Queen of Pentacles is representative of the home and the hearth, therefore, if you are feeling health concerns of the spirit, in which you find yourself depressed consistently, and then you must take some time improving the conditions of your home. Clean up the areas that haven’t been cleaned for a while, rearrange even. If you are the type who keeps a good house, then do a house cleansing. The new energy of your home will help you develop a new sense of joy in the mind.

The Queen of Pentacles in Work and Wealth Now is the time for you to be blessed with a financial abundance that you never thought possible. Even more so than what the Knight of Pentacles has to offer, the Queen tells you that whatever you want will be.  All you have to do is remember that it is possible. Your thoughts create your life, pick the good ones.


Reversed Meaning - Queen Of Pentacles You must accept the fact at this time that you require nurturing relationships in life and get rid of those that are not otherwise you are going to go through a phase where you won’t be able to trust anyone and that is counterproductive to where you need to be right now in your life. When the Queen of Pentacles reversed presents itself, it means that you have the potential to have all that you desire, and getting caught up in the neglectful laziness of those surrounding you will get you nowhere. You will only become nervous and confused. The reversed position of this card points out that right now you are already in the cycle of being mistrustful of others and so you must nip the cycle in the bud before it gets any worse. Trust that you know what to do, and focus all of your energies on the beautiful, healthy energies of the Queen.

The Emperor

The Emperor tarot card

The Emperor is the counterpart of the Empress, but where the Empress is care free in her abundance, the Emperor is almost strict with his own form of stability and can symbolize many different things depending on the context in which he represents himself.

If you receive this card during a general reading, then the Emperor is going to provide you with a solid, continual energy to benefit your life. He does not leave a lot of room for excess change or random behavior. The Emperor is pragmatic, regal and stately. His energy is full of action and drive, and there is no room for mistakes. This is a card of possession, domination and authority and says that currently in your life you need direction. Often the Emperor will reflect an internal compass, a card that is attempting to show you the way. To be something and to know something is entirely different then being capable of doing something. Embracing the capabilities of the Emperor assists you in understanding this level of authority. Now is a time to trust your own instincts and skills to get a much needed job done. Do not rely on others to complete what you can do yourself. Do not expect that others are going to do as good of a job as you are.

You are in a time of your life that your own limits may be tested and while you are feeling run down or underappreciated you still need to push through. There is no room for error. The Emperor points his glare at you in a reading stating that you also may be pushing others too hard. The message for the card is for you and you alone. You need to be responsible for your actions at this time and reliance on others will likely result in a disaster of some kind.

The depiction of the Emperor on the card is full of metaphorical images that will help you to assist what the role of the Emperor is in your life. He sits in a stone throne that is unyielding but efficient with the Martian ram heads signifying his masculine role with mars. He is forward momentum and drive. How can you focus more on pushing yourself forward? His beard is long, symbolizing his many years full of wisdom. Many comment on his metal shoes. One would ask why he isn’t wearing shoes that are more comfortable. The answer is simple, his shoes are an example of authority, of procedure, they are part of his uniform and that symbol is constant and never changing. You will benefit from adding this level of professionalism in your life.

The Emperor encourages us to focus on the reasoning and critically thinking mind. What is feasible and is reasonable is the world that the Emperor lives in. When you receive this card in a reading, the Emperor commands that you get rid of all form of fantasy and fill your head with the facts. Handle your affairs in a systematic way and do not encourage room for error. Anything that you can do to be responsible for the standing in your life is imperative now. The effort you put in at this time will be greatly rewarded.

The Emperor in Love In love, the Emperor is symbolic of monogamy, of longevity and consistency. When this card appears in your love spread you can count on being blessed with something stable and dependable coming your way. If you are already in a relationship and you are having problems, the Emperor says that you can depend on the situation to improve and to remain stable at least for the interim. Consider what he has to teach you about being a solid influence in your life and in the lives of others.

This card can be confusing if you are looking for love. For a woman looking for love it will often show an older male coming into her life and instruct her to be open to new possibilities. However, for a male seeking love it tells you that you need to be more forward in your search, be willing to share your feelings, and warns of waiting too long for the right woman. It is likely that you are holding back your feelings to a woman and now is the time to speak up before your opportunity is missed.


The Emperor in Health When the Emperor comes up in a reading where health is mentioned, several possibilities present themselves. First, this can be a sign of good health over all, that you are well and will continue to be well. However, if this card comes up reversed regarding health, then you will want to consider the negative effects that being overly routine or constricted is having on your overall health. This could show up in tension headaches or other stress related issues. One can be too authoritarian or too rigid. The Emperor is there to teach you to bring yourself back into balance and to allow the positive influence of stability to come to your aid.


The Emperor in Work and Wealth The Emperor in business ventures exists to show you the support in your current workplace and to bless you with up and coming possibilities that will add more stability in your life. If you are unsure that you are making the right move in your industry by accepting a promotion, the Emperor says to take the job if it will encourage longevity in the workplace. He also represents a long-term opportunity coming your way financially such as in making money off the sale of a house, inheritance, or cashing in of stocks and bonds. The positive energy in this card is very strong concerning finance and work. The Emperor has worked for what he has and with him in a reading, he brings a deal of luck and fortune through experience and reputation.

Reversed Emperor in a reading When the Emperor appears in a reading in the reversed position, there is a loss of control possible in your near future. Perhaps being overly structured has taken a toll on your existence and you have begun receiving injuries due to this lack of flowing energy. Consider taking some time off so that you may be able to get through the frustrating phase. Pay attention to paperwork and ensure that you have only trustworthy people around you. With the positive energies in the reversed position, the energies that would usually be of an aid to you can actually be a hindrance. You will likely find that you are being overconfident or rude and not knowing it. Especially in a professional sense – the reversed position does not bode well for work and finance. Do what you can to get your finances on track by setting up a budget that is reasonable and workable. Work hours that are conducive. Overworking, overbooking, and being overextended are often serious issues when the Emperor is reversed.

The Six of Pentacles

The Six of Pentacles tarot card

Following with the story line of the pentacles you will find that there are ups and downs regarding stability, money, and work.

The Five of Pentacles was a card of destitution and recognizes the need to ask for help in order for one to get back on their feet. The Six of Pentacles is now that realization of charity and good works. It is a representation of either you receiving charity that is much needed to get you to where you need either financially or in regards to a living situation. Base needs are now being met and positive changes are happening.

It can also be a representation that you have learned how to manage your own finances and that you are now competent at meeting your base needs such as food, shelter, and housing and that you are in a position to help or teach others. Depending on where you are in your path – being the helper or the one that needs help – it is important to realize both sides of the charitable coin.

Help to others and receiving help is often part of the human experience. When we have enough we give to those around us and in turn it can be humbling to have to accept help. If you are in a position of needing help be appreciative of the help you receive and remember that you needed to rely on others. Do not take it for granted however and realize that the help offered at this time is a hand up rather than a hand out. Squandering this help will cause you to go back on your path rather than forward. If you happen to be in a position where you can help others, the card can also be a reminder not to overextend your helpfulness. You will be no help to anyone if you continue to offer help and not focus on also taking care of your own needs. Be generous within reason but do not be so generous that you cause yourself a loss.

The Six of Pentacles in Love In love the Six of Pentacles can be a generous card showing that there is much to be gained by interacting in a relationship at this time. Sometimes it will come up when there is enough of a foundation to move on to the next step of a relationship but with this it focuses more on monetary or material aspects of the relationship rather than emotional ones. The card will come up usually when relating to growing in areas of housing like moving in together or joining financial resources to make a couple stronger.

When seeking love the Six of Pentacles tells you to be generous with your offerings right now and it is a good time to put yourself out there. Focus on areas of charity or giving in order to meet others that have the same mindset and goals. Likely a relationship can be found in your local soup kitchen or charitable function. Your goal should not be helping in order to find love. Rather focus on giving your time or resources in ways that you can so that you get more involved. Love is a likely side effect but it could also be friendship and other relationships as well.

The Six of Pentacles in Health  The Six of Pentacles is a good card regarding health in that it can indicate improved health overall, but especially a period of illness. If you have been dealing with a nagging illness or pain the Six of Pentacles shows increased circulation and vitality that will cause an upswing of healing regarding wellness on its own. For more serious health issues this is a good time to seek assistance to ensure healing. Options for getting better are available to you if you seek them out.

The Six of Pentacles in Work and Wealth The Three-Fold Law says that what you put out will come back to you threefold. The Six of Pentacles is much like this law, stating that what you have been putting out to the world is coming back to you. Usually, it’s a good card indicating a windfall of sorts that comes from good works. It can indicate a bonus for work done or a raise even. Don’t think of inheritances, games of chance, or the lottery. No, the Six of Pentacles is in relation to getting what you give. If you have been on a good path in work or finances with your intentions… that is working hard and trying to seek success then you are likely to see the fruition of your efforts and be rewarded handsomely. You may even be coming out of a hard time financially and need a little extra help. In this case, someone around you may give you money because they can see that you are trying but just need a little help.

The Six of Pentacles is an exceptional card regarding work and looking for new opportunities. Whether you are seeking a job due to unemployment or a need for advancement it is an excellent time to spend energy on finding what you need. You will create your own opportunities simply by making your desires known the universe. Of course, you have to act too. You won’t find what you are hoping for if you don’t look. Remember to be reworking your resume with all of your current information and to be sending it out there! Don’t expect new opportunities to fall into your lap, you have to ask for them and do your part to ensure they come to you. The 6 of pentacles can indicate that harmony is soon to be yours, it may imply you are expert at what you do and wish to help or give others something important. Six in tarot represents balance. This card can mean giving money to others through work. There is a lesson imprinted here. Learn to give and receive in a work context. In terms of business, it can indicate success and that you will employ more people. 


Reversed Meaning - Six of Pentacles Often the spiritual nature of the Six of Pentacles is missed in the upright position because there is a lot of focus on the monetary or material gain being experienced. However in the reversed position, there is a huge emphasis on spirituality or emotional health. In the reversed position the Six of Pentacles calls for a change in your view and often can indicate depression which is worsening or feelings of hopelessness like there is nowhere to turn. Avoid penning up your emotions or basing them on your current lot in life. Now is a time where good works will be rewarded but you have to get off your butt and seek them out. Sitting around and moping about your situation is not going to improve anything. Even if you feel that your situation is the cause of your problems or that everything has gotten so out of control that you are buried beneath your problems, there is hope and help for you. You have to be the one to shake off the dirt, so to speak, and reach out for a helping hand. Help and support is around you but you have to be willing to accept it and avoid being too stubborn to ask for it.
