10 thoughts on “Poetry of the Tarot: Queen of Pentacles

  1. One of my favorite cards… Queen of Pentacles seems to be a Goddess… She reminds me of Demeter, Greek Goddess of Harvest and Persephone´s mother… A symbol of protection and security… a perfect motherly figure… Sending love and best wishes, dear Deborah! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Aquileana for your beautiful reply! I love this wonderful earthy Queen, yes, a true Goddess indeed! There are so many fruitful stories and mother myths that emerge from her illustrative symbolism alone. When writing, I will often sit in her bodily presence, her card resting upon my laptop screen, and magically, the words flow. In soul, Deborah.

  2. Oh my, Deborah. Thank you for directing me to this post. I’m kind of blown away by what I’ve read here. It actually does sound very like me, including the shadow or reverse side! Ouch. 🙂 Okay, so now I have to get out my Tarot deck, which I haven’t looked at in years, and study this lady for more meaning! Again, thank you for another rich source of symbolic meaning, and I mean both the Tarot and your amazing poems! Warm hugs, Jeanie

    1. Thank you so much Jeanie for your lovely comment on the ‘Queen of Pentacles,’ much appreciated. For many years now I have found myself greatly inspired by the Tarot, most especially those four beautiful Queens. If you’re interested in reading more on the topic here’s a link to a blog post I wrote last year all about my journey: http://theliberatedsheep.com/journey-of-love-the-poetry-of-the-tarot/

      Your ‘new’ bracelet nudged me to recall this wonderful earthy Queen. I have written a poem for each, and in the third verse I show the card in its reverse position. They’re a wonderful tool for exploring the archetypes. In typological terms Pentacles represent Sensate, Cups represent Intuition, Swords represent Thinking and Wands represent Feeling. Blessings, Deborah.

    1. Many thanks Sue, welcome to The Liberated Sheep. I am divinely inspired by the Tarot and have begun my own poetic Fool’s Journey! Your inspirational post has just fired me up with my own blog.

  3. Hi Deborah – I’m loving the little maths lesson prior to posting a comment. Lol.
    Magical and beautifully executed I must say – she’s quite a lady this one! . Xxx

    1. Lol! Yesterday I got asked 15 + 27 … had to work it out on my fingers!

      Oh my goddess this queen is so stylishly beautiful, I just love her fruitful and abundant relationship with Nature and creativity! I don’t know if I’ve said before that the third verse of each Tarot poems shows the card in reverse. Thank you for your lovely comment Bathsheba. xxx

  4. A wonderful write and as always you have portrayed a fascinating tale with such beautiful words.
