Queen of Pentacles

Queen of Pentacles

You want to be thinking today about what you truly value — which may or may not relate to money and material possessions.

The Queen of Pentacles is often associated with money. She represents a strong, practical and efficient individual who is grounded in the material world and who understands the value of a dollar.

But the Queen of Pentacles isn’t always tied to money. And in this version of the card — from the Secret Language of Birds Tarot — she’s portrayed as 60’s sex-kitten Brigitte Bardot, who gave up a career in Hollywood (and the financial security that came with it) in exchange for something that mattered more to her.

For the past forty-plus years she’s devoted her life to animal rights endeavors, funding her activism by selling off her own clothing and jewelry. This is such a good example of the Queen of Pentacles energy, as it illustrates to concept of putting resources (valuables) to work and gaining something far more valuable in the end.

This Queen of Pentacles is usually tied to both Venus and Earth signs — or more specifically Venus-ruled Taurus. But Venus also rules Libra which is Brigitte Bardot’s Sun sign as well as the constellation on this card.

The Sun face on the medallion that hangs from her neck and the stars imprinted on her shirt remind us that we all have a place in the Universe. The wren totems on the card are tied to resourcefulness and efficiency, which are also features of this archetype.

The Queen of Pentacles needs to be grounded. And she needs to feel that she’s contributing to her future and her financial security. But she also knows that there is so much more to life than wealth and success. You can work and earn and save to your heart’s content, but unless you can find a meaningful outlet for it, you’ll never be fulfilled.
