Once again, this week we receive a court card, indicating that there are important people that will be affecting us in the days ahead. Or perhaps this aspect of ourselves is going to be especially important. This week, the Queen of Pentacles visits us again, as our guide. Lush, beautiful, yet also thoughtful, she is the true earth mother.
In a fascinating bit of synchronicity, the Queen of Pentacles is also the September card of the month right now in Comparative Tarot, an outstanding Yahoo group that studies, compares and contrasts the cards in different Tarot decks.
Just for a change, today I offer the Osho Zen Tarot’s© lovely interpretation of the Queen of Pentacles. In that deck, the suit of Pentacles is called “Rainbows.” For my previous recent discussion of this beautiful card, you can go here.
The Queen of Rainbows is like a fantastic plant that has reached the apex of its flowering and its colors. She is very sexual, very alive, and full of possibilities. She snaps her fingers to the music of love, and her zodiac necklace is placed in a way that Venus lies over her heart.
The sleeves of her garment contain an abundance of seeds, and as the wind blows the seeds will be scattered to take root where they may. She is not concerned whether they land on the soil or on the rocks – she is just spreading them everywhere in sheer celebration of life and love. Flowers fall on her from above, in harmony with her own flowering, and the waters of emotion swirl playfully beneath the flower on which she sits.
You might feel like a garden of flowers right now, showered with blessings from everywhere. Welcome the bees, invite the birds to drink your nectar. Spread your joy around for all to share.
Zen wants you living, living in abundance, living in totality, living intensely – not at the minimum as [some faiths] tell you, but at the maximum, over-flowing. Your life should reach to others. Your blissfulness, your benediction, your ecstasy should not be contained within you like a seed. It should open like a flower and spread its fragrance to all and sundry – not only to the friends but to the strangers too.
This is real compassion, this is real love: sharing your enlightenment, sharing your dance of the beyond.
