Queen of Pentacles
The Queen of Pentacles is traditionally seen as goddess of house and home. We can peer a bit closer and discover a specific talent she has that is often overlooked. Lean in and take away a delicious lesson from our happy housewife.
Pentacles represent earth, money, material items, etc. In the context of this Queen however, we will focus on one particular aspect of Pentacles – the flesh. Pentacles represent our bodies. Our soft, porous skin, sinewy muscles, pulsing blood. We are one hundred percent organic living matter.
The Queen of Pentacles rests on the contractive side of The Tree of Life. She gives form, shape to all ideas and why she’s understood as an inspired creator. Using this contractive ability she commands mastery over her physical body. She lives completely, one hundred percent inside herself. How many of us can say that?
As the Queen of Pentacles forms and creates, she dwells in her bones, she knows herself better than any doctor. She senses a cold before sniffles start, appreciates her crows feet – delicate traces of a lifetime of laughing, knows when it is time to refresh herself with sleep, strengthens herself with exercise – not to burn calories but because she’s awed by the strength of her muscles. She’ll take ten minutes to slowly savor a piece of dark chocolate. She knows when she takes care of herself, she is better able to take care of those around her.
How well do you sit inside yourself? Would you say you have a good mind/physical connection? Can you appreciate how far that little body of yours has taken you? Do you treat it well?
Gaze at The Queen of Pentacles and let her inspire you. How might you be kinder to yourself? You possess her uncanny ability to dwell inside yourself in a healthy, full and vibrant way. Own who you are. Love who you are.
