|Queen of Pentacles - Tarot of the Magical Forest|
In the past when I've drawn this card, I've read it as an encouragement to love and take care of myself. I didn't immediately get that vibe when I pulled it, so I thought I'd just look for ways to incorporate the energy of this card into my day. I did a little cleaning here and there, and I found it a pleasure because I had already whipped the house into shape earlier in the week in anticipation of guests coming over. It's always easier to keep a clean house clean than it is to work in a messy house. Well, no duh, huh?
The thing about this particular Queen of Pentacles is she looks really tired to me. Yeah, that can be the downside of being the Queen of Pentacles. She's so busy tending to everyone else, making the house cozy, balancing the checkbook, reading to the kiddies, but if she isn't careful all of that care-giving can really take a toll.
So, this tired Queen still serves as a reminder to take care of myself so I can continue to be there to take care of my lovelies.
