Today is a spectacular day! It is Mabon, the Autumn equinox, the first day of fall! That means it is now culturally appropriate to wear sweaters and drink pumpkin spice and decorate your house in the spooky manner you wish you could all year round.
But we have a card to read today!
Today’s card is the Queen of Pentacles.
Court cards are always a little wonky, since they can either be representative of figures in life, such as the subject of the reading or of people in the subject’s life, or they can represent the bigger picture of the suit’s message; Kings refer to the management and ruling over of the suit’s intention, such as the King of Cups being the the ruler over emotions.
Queens can represent mothers or women, or the creation of something. Pentacles represent wealth and materialism.
Normally, I would assume that this card is representative of me or someone close to me, but since this isn’t exactly a normal reading where we have a representative. But since today isn’t representative of a person, it is more likely the idea of creating wealth, creating a space with the materials you need to be nurtured.
Today, I think we should focus on giving ourselves a sacred place in our own environments; make that blanket fort, make a new altar space, make your bedroom more cozy and comforting in time for winter. Despite what everyone else on the internet preaches, you can’t go and create wealth by learning some weird skill or becoming an virtual ‘insert-job-title-here’. Wealth cannot be created or magically earned (I know, ironic coming from a witch). But wealth can be attained through hardwork and giving ourselves the resources to work hard.
So let’s give thanks for what we do have and gives ourselves the space to recharge and rest after our had work. We can create our own wealth in remembering what we do have and being grateful for what we have. We can create a space for ourselves to enjoy life.
