Thoth-Queen of Disks
The Devotee of Smilies.
In Western Hermetic Magic, the Tarot Queen of Disks/Pentacles/Coins/Crystals or Devotee of Smilies is known as The Queen of the Thrones of Earth, Queen of the Gnomes.
The placement of the Queens is with the 3rd Sephiroth-Mother Binah who is the "Will-to-Form" and is a force of enclosure that is imposed on the Pure Fiery "Will-to-Force" Energy of Chokmah (King) as Understanding. She is therefore known for Understanding the Wisdom of Chokmah; for an idea, once understood, can be molded/enclosed into manifestation as in-form-action. Information becomes in-form-action, so that it can be experienced, thereby, becoming Knowledge.

Western Hermetic Qabalah-Tree of life
Again, these Sephirotic Beings (Numbered Circles) are not Persons, but States of Conscious Energy, called "Beings" (Immortals) that are the multidimensional aspects that make up the "God Molecule" (Tree of Life) and the Divine Universal Collective Unconscious and/or The Greater Self, meaning the deep Imagination, where images are forms of ideas. Images are the only way to realize these deep inner layers of Mind and that "before Mind" (The No-Thing) and this is shown by the Supernal Triangle manifesting self-image in Malkuth. Tarot is one of the Image languages that has evolved over time, by constant scholarly input, to communicate with the Higher Mind; language is added to the cards, but it is the image that contains the true message. The immortal Being that is known as Mother Binah is the 3rd Sephiroth on the Tree of Life, and the Energy Intelligence of the Queens. She is in the upper Trinity called the Supernal Triangle (Super-conscious) where she is the essence of Cosmic Womb, and I often call this state of Mind a "Womb with a View", because she conceives by Understanding, which means she sees all and by understanding she creates image.

The Queens also represent the Water in each suit. Water being the unconsciousness, intuition, receptiveness, and emotion. They are enthroned in the Element of Consciousness and as emotions make it bring forth the Force of the King by realization and understanding that which develops that force as a consciousness image of an emotionally/energy-in-motion charged idea. However, the King and Queen are as Chokmah and Binah, they are inseparable making the gender of either one, one and the same. 0=2.
Thoth-Queen of Disks

Her Astrological attribution is the 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. In common vernacular she is "Mother Nature". Her zodiacal attribute to Capricorn is shown by the image of the Goat.

The Thoth Deck Queen of Disks is displaying her rulership over earth as shown in the crystal cubed scepter that has within it a three-sided Hexagram, making The Pure White Light of Kether, into the many frequencies (colors) of Energy that are intertwined to make the different flora and fauna of the Microcosm. 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 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 a molecular Law of Attraction. This is also shown by the Spiral Horns of the Makor on Her helmet/crown, (A Wild Goat native to Central Asia who is also shown standing on the sphere of earth), 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 grow larger.

The Thoth Tarot- Queen of Disks

As a personality, she represents a mature woman, the ultimate Matriarch, with much experience with both of her feet on the ground who knows how to protect what is entrusted to her. Here is the embodiment of vitality, creativity, understanding how to set boundaries and assert herself. Hence, patience, sensuality, and trustworthiness are her essential characteristics.

The Thoth Tarot - Queen of Disks and the Queen of Smilies represents a kind, practical person who enjoys the good things in life. To her, status is important, and she works hard to maintain appearances. Liking to be of service, she sometimes can appear selfish, although she is a good lover. The goat on the golden orb is a symbol for both the subconscious and the sign of Capricorn.
Many think that the Earth as a mother who is an Intelligent-Sentient Being is a fantasy. However, in my past, I spent 5 years of Shamanic drumming work, alone with the wild land, living in a Blackfoot Teepee in the high desert country of Montana and I was able to contact and communicate with the Great Her, who is Earth. I call her "Hairy Mari", for she is wild, free, as the Ocean goddess Mari and most lovely. She greets me as "Husband", and shared with me her love, dreams, and future for Homo Sapiens Sapiens (and Anu Sapien Sapiens). I am totally enthralled with this Matriarch of Life. The Fantasy is ignoring her as an intelligent loving mother and thinking she is a dead rock that can be exploited for the greed of few.

The Greeks knew this Queen of Earth as Demeter, goddess of the harvest and later she became the European /American symbol of the cornucopia.
Demeter is a significant figure in Greek mythology, and her story is often associated with agriculture, fertility, and the changing seasons.
Demeter is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea, making her one of the Olympian gods and goddesses. She is primarily known as the goddess of agriculture and the harvest. Her Roman counterpart is Ceres. Here are some key aspects of Demeter's mythology:
Abduction of Persephone: One of the most famous myths involving Demeter is the abduction of her daughter, Persephone, by Hades, the god of the underworld. Persephone (Princess of Disks) was picking flowers when Hades emerged from the earth and took her to his realm. Demeter's grief over the loss of her daughter led to the barrenness of the earth, resulting in a long winter.
Search for Persephone: Demeter embarked on a quest to find her daughter. During her search, she disguised herself as an old woman and came to Eleusis, where the royal family welcomed her. She took care of their son, Demophoon, and tried to make him immortal by placing him in the fire at night. However, she was discovered by the queen, who was initially shocked but then grateful for her kindness.
Demeter's Sorrow and the Seasons: During Demeter's mourning for Persephone, the earth remained barren. Zeus eventually intervened and negotiated with Hades to allow Persephone to return to her mother for part of the year, which symbolized spring and summer. However, when Persephone returned to the underworld, Demeter's grief brought about the cold and lifeless seasons of autumn and winter.
Eleusinian Mysteries: Demeter was strongly associated with the Eleusinian Mysteries, a religious cult in ancient Greece that promised initiates spiritual insight and a better afterlife. These mysteries were centered around the myth of Demeter and Persephone and were considered highly secretive and sacred.
Demeter's worship was integral to ancient Greek agriculture, as her blessings were believed to ensure bountiful harvests. She was often depicted holding a sheaf of wheat or barley. The myth of Demeter and Persephone also symbolizes the cyclical nature of life, death, and rebirth, which is reflected in the changing seasons.
In summary, Demeter is a vital figure in Greek mythology, associated with agriculture, the seasons, and the deep bond between a mother and her daughter. Her story has had a lasting impact on ancient Greek culture and continues to be a subject of fascination and interpretation in various forms of art and literature.

The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot- Queen of Smilies.
The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot- Devotee of Smilies can represent a person, in any area of life, but it can just as well mean an experience in the corresponding area in question. Here she is the feminine earth. Instead of her tears creating the Ocean of mind. Rather, here her water is flowing from yet another water ejection system of her body. She resembles a smiling Wahine and/or a Hawaiian female image harvesting carrots and standing on fertile land from which grows a Smilie. Yet oddly enough she is wearing an acorn necklace, exemplifying the fact she is not limited to the Hawaiian Islands.
In the Hawaiian language, females are generally referred to as "wahine." This term is used for women or females in a general sense. If you specifically want to refer to a young woman or girl, you can use the term "kaikamahine."
