Queen of Pentacles Tarot Card Description
The Queen of Pentacles card depicts a beautiful woman sitting on a decorated throne holding a golden coin. Surrounding her are beautiful blossoming trees and green floral gardens. Her throne is decorated with various beasts of the earth, tying her closely with nature and abundance. At the bottom of the card, on the right-hand side, a rabbit is pouncing into the frame, which symbolizes her high energy and fertility. The Queen of Pentacles, therefore, depicts a certain level of success and prosperity. But the rabbit at the bottom cautions us that we should be careful of where we leap when we are chasing that success.

The Eabhadh symbol, which represents the sound Ea, is connected to trees which are found in groves–Aspen, Birch, etc.–the sacred places where Druids once gathered. When Eabhadh appears, it’s often a clue that there is some sort of conflict resolution, justice, or counsel about to occur. In some traditions, this symbol is associated with attracting the harmonies of life through spiritual growth.
The very concept of a grove brings to mind a spiritual place. Many members of modern-day Druidic traditions refer to their group as a grove rather than a coven or other word. It brings to mind a place where people can gather to work out their differences, if everyone involved is so willing.
Mundane Aspects: Treaties can be made, misunderstandings cleared up, and differences resolved… as long as all affected parties are willing to both listen AND speak. If this symbol appears, understand that at its core lies communication. No war can end without discussion, no compromise reached without listening to the needs of others.
Magical Aspects: Learn to lead by your examples and actions–in other words, practice that which you preach! Try not to be judgmental, unless you are asked for guidance or to give counsel. If that does happen, be sure you use fairness and wisdom, rather than emotions, to resolve the situation. Be just and ethical, rather than trying to be popular.
