Money & Career- This card is a good one when it comes to work. Because it is depicts wealth and luxury, it also depicts success and smart financial choices. You don’t become wealthy lacking either of those.

It’s not a sin to treat yourself well, and you’ll find happiness in having items to your taste surrounding you. You may find your spending comes with a bit of a frugal voice in your head questioning or admonishing you not to be a spendthrift. It’s good to listen to it and judge your purchases from both points of view.
Health & Wellness- Why not invest in items which make your health better, since you have the means, the Queen asks? If your sleep is disrupted try a special bed. Organic foods will help you improve your diet. Even special treats, such as a spa day or regular massages are going to benefit your health. A small change can make a huge difference in your quality of life, so consider spending where it will benefit you the most. There’s no sense skipping your yearly doctor appointments, either.
Spirituality- This queen card touches deeply on maternal instincts and you’ll often find yourself repeating things your mother said to you as you were growing up. The takeaway is to rely on your inner wisdom, whether from your own experience of those words shared by your mother, and use them to guide you. Your search for peace will be aided when you consider that you do have the wisdom to find the answers you need; you just need to listen.
Queen of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings Reversed- Suspicion, mistrust, chaos, poverty, illness, imbalance, stagnation, lack of motivation, selfishness, speculation, laziness, irresponsibility, fear of failure, self-conceit, insecurity, and waste.
The reversed Queen of Pentacles tarot card teaches about the risk of chaos to your life when your priorities are misguided. When faced with trials such as illness or money troubles it’s easy to get hung up on a single aspect, such as chasing after money that is already lost or spending excessive amounts on “snake oil” medical treatments. Desperation makes fools of us all and when the queen is reversed, her typical control and serenity is replaced by disorganization and fear. This card is warning that you’re experiencing something of an upset in your life and without some course correction you may be headed for a real travesty.
Love & Relationships- In the context of love it’s like you’re experiencing insecurity in the relationship. It could be insecurity that your partner still loves you or is faithful to you. A typical reaction would be to try to fix the problem, but the reversed Queen of Pentacles suggest instead to make yourself a priority and figure out how you can approach this situation differently. It will give you a sense of control and you’ll find that when you treat yourself as a priority, your relationship will follow suit. As a single person the advice remains the same- rather than fixate on why you are not in a relationship, first treat yourself like your own best love and you’ll find that a relationship will soon follow.
Money & Career- In matters of career and business, be mindful. This reversed queen represents a possible hostile work environment or your inability to organize yourself enough to be effective in your job. Be aware that a hostile work environment can also include an overly-ambitious coworker who may steal your work or throw you under the bus, a backstabbing or gossipy coworker, or a boss who is unable or unwilling to lead their team effectively. Spending in your household may be unstructured now and it’s a good time to set a budget and regain control of your finances.
Health & Wellness- Sadly, when the Queen of Pentacles tarot card is reversed in regards to health matters it can signify a problem with addiction. When issues like these exist it’s also common for great distrust and secrecy to accompany them. These issues can also extend into eating disorders and lead to over or under eating, and the attendant health problems. While this card doesn’t bode well for your current health situation, it doesn’t mean these circumstances will last forever. The queen is a character who takes charge and makes difficult decisions, many times relying on her own intuition. You’ll find this approach will be helpful to you as you learn to trust yourself to make decisions that benefit you in the long run.
Spirituality- As far as spirituality is concerned this reversed card brings the omen of negative spiritual powers. If you’re using your intuition or manipulation skills for dishonest or exploitative reasons, there will be consequences. Likewise, be cautious to whom you entrust your psyche and spiritual path, because they may be leading you away from your best interests. You typically have a well-defined sense of yourself, spiritually, and right now that may be missing or feel hollow. Regroup, reground yourself, and aim again for light and love.
