The 3rd Sephiroth- Binah is the "will to form" and is a force that is imposed on the Pure Fiery Energy of Chokmah. She is known as Understanding, for an idea, once understood, can be molded into manifestation as information and/or in-form-action. She is the "Dark Sea" of the Universal Collective Unconscious.
Again, these Sephiroth are not Persons, but States of Conscious Energy, called "Beings" that are parts of the Divine Collective Unconscious/conscious. Mother Binah's part being the deep Imagination, where images are whirling forms of ideas. Images are the only way to realize these deep inner layers of Mind and that before Mind; which is Will. Tarot is one of the Image languages that has evolved over time to communicate successfully with that Universal Mind.
As Stated: Binah is the 3rd Sephiroth on the Tree of Life, in the upper part called the Supernal Triangle. She is the essence of Womb, and I often call this state of Mind a "Womb with a View", because she conceives by understanding.
The Queens all represent the Water in each suit. Water being Intuition, Consciousness, and Emotion. They are enthroned in the Element of Consciousness and as Understanding they bring forth the Force of the King (will to force), by realization and understanding that which develops that force and form. As consciousness does to emotionally (energy-in-motion) charged idea.
The Queen of Disks, often called the Queen of Pentacles, is also Queen of the Thrones of Earth; In Western Magic Mysteries she is the Queen of the Gnomes.
Astrological attribution is last Decan of Sagittarius and the first two Decans of Capricorn. The Queen of Disks is Water of Earth, a specific consciousness in the Primal Earth element. Most of us call her "Mother Nature". The Thoth Queen of Disks is displaying her ruler ship over earth as shown in the crystal cubed scepter that has within it a three-sided Hexagram.
Her zodiacal attribute to Capricorn is shown by the image of the Goat. Her Throne is vegetation as she is the life of such. She is the Highest Aspect of passivity and this is shown as a winding passive river flowing through and fertilizing waste land. The Great Work is ultimately expressed in fertility, where the "As the Above manifests in the below'. She as Queen, is the facilitator of such manifestation.
The Disk on her left arm is curved with loops and spheres interlaced, representing the ambition of matter to take part in the Great Work. This ambition is often described as fecund motion. This is also shown by the Spiral Horns on Her helmet/crown, as Spiral force which is both Spirit and Vital Life Force. The reptilian patterned armor of the Queen represents the regenerative force in nature as serpents shed their skin to become more.
As an archetypal persona, the person born Dec. 13 and Jan.9th, has the core qualities of the Queen of Disks. Such as, a mature woman with much experience in life who stands with both feet on the ground and knows how to protect what is entrusted to her. She is the embodiment of vitality, and creativity, understanding how to set boundaries and assert herself.
The Tarot of Druids-Queen of Anguinum, depicts a Celtic Queen holding a Sacred Serpent Egg (Pentacle or World Egg). All the characteristics of a mature woman of amorous passion, fertility, vitality and "knowing what she wants and getting it" are embodied in her knowing smile. She is the Celtic idea of Gaia . Therefore, the Thoth Queen of Disks is a comparable card.
