Meet the Queen of Pentacles, the matriarch of disks. She is the cornerstone of the family, the one who demands respect, knows her role and purpose. Just look at the expression upon her face, isn’t she wise and wonderful, elegant and strong? When she speaks you listen, your response should be well thought out, as she’ll be quick to correct you if not. Not in a harsh or cutting way, but she likes things to be clear, words without fuss, fair and down to earth.
She speaks with a hushed voice, “come here my child, pull up a chair, sit beside me, let’s have a chat.” She’s mindful not to interrupt, but keen to mother and guide. She draws you in, softens your grip, you know she’s listening, you can see it in her eyes, so you begin to open up and confess your deepest troubles and burdens.
There is an old practice when our ancestors would sit around the campfire. A time to empty their fears, a time to gain guidance and wisdom from the elders. The campfire has become the dining table, the coffee bar or a chat on the phone.
Here is the beautiful message behind today’s nurturing card. Embrace the hand of the great mother, hold her gentle hand tight. Talk to her in your mind, sing to her in the night. Tell her your deepest secrets, your worries, fears and concerns. Now wait and see, as her loving eyes set tightly upon your face. Hush my dear child, dry those salty tears, now close your eyes, hear the bird sing, let the song soothe and serenade your mind. I am your mother, your protector and defender. Surrender your concerns into my loving care and keeping. Let me take your troubles deep within my care. Let me heal your painful wounds, cleanse your mind and soul. I am your loving mother, and you are my precious child.
