worlds with diet and nutrition.
The reptilian gown represents
her capacity to regenerate her body (organic living organism) through
diet and nutrition. The pineapple throne she is siting on, represents

the Life force of Earth.

Since the Court Cards are Archetype cards of Personality, by looking up ones birth date, one can find the Archetype that their Soul used as the foundation of the manifested personality. If one is under 40 yrs of age, one would use the Princess or Prince court card as their "identifier". If one is over 40, the Kings and Queens are their "identifiers".
The B.O.T.A. Tarot-QUEEN OF PENTACLES,
depicts a Queen dressed in the russet robe of Earth/Malkuth and the blue cape of Water/Unconscious. The further earth colors, attributed to the 10th Sephira-Malkuth, are the olive green border of the Pentacle and the citrine of the grass.
The symbols of her fertility and fruitfulness, are both the Pineapple crowning her throne, and the lush foliage and the roses that are her "sacred flower".
On her throne is the image of cupid, signifying love and the Great Mother's power over fecund relationships.
