Queen of Pentacles Tarot Card Description
To fully understand the Queen of Pentacles tarot card meaning, we will first take a look at the illustration, its colors, and its symbolism.
Like the Page, Knight, and King of her suit, the Queen of Pentacles is set against a golden sky. She also holds a pentacle of the same hue which represents all of her earthly desires.
Although she is seated on a beautiful throne, her posture is one of humility and grace rather than pomp and circumstance.
She is surrounded by budding flowers and earthly abundance, which represent both growth and intellect. The cherub and beasts carved into her throne, as well as the rabbit positioned nearby, represent her connection with animals and fertility. Both a mother and a shrewd businesswoman, the Queen can do it all.

Not only is she jealous of others, deep down she is an insecure woman who is a real worrier. Because she is so obsessed with things outside of herself, this version of the Queen neglects her own self.

Either way, you should take some time for you–the internal you. Instead of worrying about money, working on projects, spending time with kids, or helping others, hit the reset button.
During this time, do things that will help you connect with your authentic self. Focusing on the positive and not being influenced by negative outsiders will help you embrace the aspects of the Queen of Pentacles that is uplifting.
