You’ve looked at your parents and family members and used their lives as lessons for your own. Taking the next step, it’s time to live your life with these lessons in mind.


The Queen of Pentacles in the present position can suggest that it is time to look for a more permanent flow in life. As the Knight echoes routine, the Queen likes stability more so.

The Queen of Pentacles can also represent a woman in your life, likely someone who has lived a long, interesting life and has the wisdom to impart good lessons. Take as much advice as you can from this person. Generally, any advice from anybody is helpful, especially if you need guidance now.

You may be in a transition period; feeling like you’re going from a child to an adult. Look for somebody to guide you the right way. Learn from their mistakes and successes.


The Queen of Pentacles in the future position can represent a wholesome fulfilled life. You’ll achieve the things you want to and can spend your time on your own interests, as well as helping out other people.

Helping others is a noble act that produces untold dividends. Expect to become a sort of role model for others. They will look at you as an example on how to live well. In time you’ll develop a generous personality, which is very attractive to others.

You can start now; help those in need when you can.

Work, careers and education

You should be in a comfortable position when you see the Queen of Pentacles show in regards to work or education. You might be doing well at helping the emotional needs of others and seeing them reach their potential.

Helping others should always be on your mind, even if it doesn’t tie directly to your work or study. Good connections and friendships are worth more than better grades or promotions. You’ve likely done very well as it is; share your prosperity.

Love and Relationships

The Queen of Pentacles is a very serious card, but she lets her hair down when it comes to issues regarding romance and love. You may be in, or looking for a committed relationship. This is the right path to go down.

You will need somebody you can depend on, who understands your own problems and helps you deal with them. As a couple,you become one self sustaining ‘unit’. Look for somebody who completes you.

If you’re single, then make sure others know you are looking for love if this is the case. Don’t be a difficult person to reach.


The Queen of Pentacles is a good card regarding finances and money. You are likely learning ways to use your money that are beneficial, and not superficial.

Money can work for you, and the smartest people save their money, and save for long term gratification over a short term fix. If you don’t have many, then imagine you have more serious responsibilities. This should keep you grounded.

The Queen of Pentacles however is still a mother, so share when you can. A mother does not keep everything to herself.

Health and well-being

The Queen of Pentacles is a good card to draw for health, but can show that you might be overexerting your focus on others and too little on yourself.

Give yourself some space, as a part of your routine. An hour alone, a relaxed bath, a walk in the woods. Something you can relax in to let your mind wander. Helping others is a noble endeavour, but you need to focus on yourself now and then.
