Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - Queen Of Pentacles Reversed

Queen Of Pentacles Reversed
Introduction: The reversed Queen of Pentacles reminds us to stay in touch with the beautiful, simple things in life which are all around us. Find joy in the simple things: a sunset, a child's laughter, a good meal. This will help you keep your center.

General: Sometimes this card refers to a dark-haired woman who is likely to play an important role in your life in some way. The reversed Queen, however, more often appears to energies in our lives which need to be paid attention to, and in this context, it's mainly the issues around the home and what "home" means to you.

Work: With regard to work, try hard to keep in mind what it is that is enjoyable, even in the slightest, about what you do. Sometimes when the reversed Queen of Pentacles appears, the only thing which you can control, or enjoy, in your working environment, is your attitude. If you cannot enjoy your work directly, see if you can bring some sort of enjoyment to the people around you. This can be a path to fulfillment as you are deciding what your next move work-wise will be.

Love: In the context of love, even reversed, this is a very feminine card. It points to a need to focus on your home life, whether or not you are currently involved with anyone, and that to do so can improve your love life immeasurably. If you are single and seeking love, it is particularly important that you take the time and trouble to create for yourself a "home base" both in the mundane and in the friends and family that surround it, that makes you feel comfortable, happy, and cared for. This grounding may well attract the love into your life that you have been seeking. The old saw that you must love yourself first, holds very true when this card appears.


Finances: The reversed Queen of Pentacles carries a warning that you may be tempted to spend too much money on your home. A warm, inviting, comfortable home can be created with next to no money; in many ways it is the love and the other unseen energies which makes a dwelling into a real home. Don't try to spend your way into it.

Health: When this Queen appears reversed, you may be trying to take care of everyone else's needs without allowing yourself the time and space that you need in order to function well. Remember that loving yourself is an important part of loving the other people which are important to you. No matter how busy you are, you can find the time to focus on yourself, even if only for three minutes a day. And you must do so in order to be truly effective and loving and healthy.

Spirituality: With the reversed Queen of Pentacles, it may be helpful to create, if not an actual part of your home, then some rituals that you do at home, to enrich your spirituality. This can be anything from creating an area to be used for meditation or contemplation, to beginning the habit of journaling occasionally, even a "gratitude journal" where you write down a thing or two each day that you are grateful for--this can pay big dividends spiritually now.
