She rules all vegetation and the topsoil in which it grows. Her energy is that of deserts as well as the plains and grassy meadows. In fact, it is her Power that governs over which parts of the Earth are fruitful and which parts are barren. In character she is quiet, patient and practical. She is not as intellectual as she is instinctive, but her instincts are very keen.
The Queen of Pentacles is a beautiful dark-haired woman who's throne sits upon a sandy barren-looking landscape. By her powers of regeneration, this desert will blossom only when she wills it. In one hand she holds a scepter crowned by a cube in the Queen scale colors of Malkuth. The cube which has six sides is an emblem of the Material Universe, while the golden orb represents the Earth. Both of these implements symbolize her authority and rulership over the Earth. Her personal emblem is the goat, a symbol of fertility and of Capricorn, the cardinal sign of Earth. The background color behind the figure is dark blue, formed from the blending of blue and black, the colors of (Heh) Water and the element of Earth.
