The Tarot of the Old Path Queen of Pentacles is an elegant dark beauty dressed in the Greens of the card's ruling element, earth.
Here the emerald gem that implies the earth element, is in her crown, ear rings and necklace. The leaf shaped grouping of three in her jewelry, indicate the three stages of Goddess as Maid, Mother and Crone.
In the language of flowers, the honey suckle behind her implies she is of a affectionate, devoted and generous nature.
The spray of wheat in the foreground indicates wealth.
The primary meaning of this card seems to be that of a woman who is cultured, intelligent, and elegant, whose interests lie in the arts, civic affairs, and is happily married.
The Queen of Disks
As stated in blogs gone past, Binah is the "will to form" and is a force that is imposed on the Pure Fiery Energy of Chokmah. She is named Understanding, for an idea, once understood, can be molded into manifestation.
Again, these Queens are not Persons, but States of Conscious Energy, called "Beings" that are parts of the Divine Collective Unconscious, meaning the deep Imagination, where images are formed and words won't explain. Images are the only way to realize these deep inner layers of Mind and that before Mind.
Binah is the 3rd Sephiroth on the Tree of Life, in the upper part called the Supernal Triangle, She is the essence of Womb, and I often call this state of Mind a "Womb with a View", because She conceives by understanding.
The Queens all represent the Water in each suit. Water being Consciousness. They are enthroned in the Element of Consciousness and make it bring forth the Force of the King, by realization and understanding that develops that force;as consciousness does to idea.
The Queen of Disks, often called the Queen of Pentacles, is also Queen of the Thrones of Earth; Queen of the Gnomes. Astrological attribution is last Decan of Sagittarius and the first two Decans of Capricorn. The Queen of Disks is Water of Earth, a specific consciousness in the Primal Earth element. Most of us call her "Mother Nature".
Her ruler ship over earth is shown in the crystal cubed scepter that has within it a three sided Hexagram. Her zodiacal attribute to Capricorn is shown by the image of the Goat. Her Throne is vegetation as she is the life of such.
She is the Highest Aspect of passivity and this is shown as a winding passive river flowing through and fertilizing waste land. The Great Work is ultimately expressed in fertility, where the "As a Above manifests in the Below'. .She as Queen, is the facilitator of such manifestation. The Disk on her left arm is curved with loops and spheres interlaced , representing the ambition of matter to take part in the Great Work. This ambition is often described as Fecund motion. This is also shown by the Spiral Horns on Her helmet/crown, as Spiral force is both Spirit and Vital Life Force. The reptilian patterned armor of the Queen represents the regenerative force in nature,, as serpents shed their skin to become more.
When thrown during a reading, the Queen of Discs or Pentacles represents:
If ill suited by the surrounding cards, she is on who is suspicious and full of mistrust. Will marry for money and neglects responsibilities.
