Magickal Queenly Day
This Magickal Day is powered by the Queen of Pentacles.
Pregnancy, birth and motherhood--literal or metaphorical--are highlighted and favored today. Conceive of your own inner power, inner command, based on deep intuition and grounded confidence. Give attention to what you have planted; if you've given sufficient care, you will seem some wonderful development. Men, don't forget that this message is for you, too!
A Queen of Pentacles--the one I visualized with my inner eye--beckoned me to her throne to show me the exquisite wood carving of its armrest. She treasures things made with great craft and beauty--and effort. They must be sound, physically durable but also an aesthetic pleasure to which one can return, time and again. Today, you will get a strong sense of what you value.
Some of you will have a different Queen of Pentacles experience today, for I sensed that she can also suggest the role of Queen Mother. So, some of you may feel the experience of being slightly off center stage, dwelling in the background perhaps, still receiving fond respect although you are not in charge, not responsible for how things go, for making things run. In another sense, you might be a symbol of what's valued, what's worth preserving. I can't find a better way of saying this: You are the soul of the matter.
One last impression from this Queen of Pentacles: The actual card I drew comes from Timothy Lantz's The Archeon Tarot deck. I don't use this deck often, but I do rather enjoy the impressionistic murkiness of Lantz's dreamy, elusive images. It's like taking a deep dive into the ocean of Tarot and having to acclimate your eyes. You can tell that Lantz's Queen, in her elegant strapless gown, is beautiful, although her face is mostly turned aside, and her crown is simple in design but rises from her head like licks of gleaming, golden flame. As a queen of the earth element, she is in touch with the humble things of earth but also infused with and radiating the highest energies.
Have a happy and satisfying day!
