Queen of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning & Interpretations

Queen of Pentacles, or Queen of Coins, Tarot card meaning and interpretation

Court cards, like the Queen of Pentacles, are unnumbered which makes using numerology to unlock their basic symbology a trickier exercise. On the surface we have the female ruler of the elemental domain of Earth but not much else to go on. We can, however, link Tarot's Queens to their supreme ruler and card number 3 of the Major Arcana, The Empress, which would give any Queen a numerological attribute of 3 by proxy.

The same element and numerology is found in the 3 Of Pentacles with its artisan creating something of material value appreciated by others.3 of Pentacles Tarot card meaning and interpretation These cards are linked because the Queen of Pentacles is the patron of the artisan. She appreciates and loves the fine products created by artisans and uses her wealth to support, nurture and enjoy their creations.

Comparing The Rider-Waite-Smith (RWS) Deck's Queen of Pentacles to The Empress it's difficult to see which is wealthier or in the better place. Both are richly dressed and sitting in bountiful gardens with plenty of sun and water. No wind or storms disturb either domain, all their elements are in harmony. Which one looks the most content? The importance of observing a Tarot character's focus, and mindfulness (or lack of), is well illustrated by comparing these two. The Empress looks very content with her mind and attention in the present. The Queen of Pentacles, facing left or west, is lost in the past. Her head is bowed facing the ground. She looks at the pentacle in her lap and the earth below her feet. This isn't someone who is content or happy but probably someone who has achieved material success and has nothing left to do but admire the trophies of her past patronages and acquisitions.

The Queen of Pentacles, also known as the Queen of Coins or Queen of Deniers, can be wealthy, materially orientated and sometimes unpleasantly money minded. This person may be cautious, stubborn, materialistic, business minded or a good negotiator. As the element of earth also refers to physical health, or ailments, this person could be very athletic, careful with their body and perhaps even quite proud of it too. This could be someone who works out regularly and takes care with what they eat. Her vocation in life may be related to the element of earth. She could be a business woman, banker, accountant, tax advisor/collector, personal trainer or health professional.
