The Erotic Tarot- Queen of Earth, depicts an heiress or archaeologist of a very carnal nature. She must have been in the desert along time by the look of her dress, or what is left of it. Yet, she has found an ancient structure, in which she is experiencing a rapture over the magnificence of her discovery. Being of opulent body, and of a carnal nature, she is indeed "earthy", and would be considered a deva even in a mundane world. She is a kind of reminiscent of Sophia Loren, an Italian film Deva of the past of which Milo Manara, and Italian artist, would know of intimately.
Milo Manara, assigned to this Queen of Earth card the meanings of :
- An heiress.
As stated before, Binah, the 3rd Sephiroth and authority of the Queens, 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, which is data, once understood, becomes information and then can be molded into manifestation.
Again, these are not "gods", but States of Conscious Energy, called "Beings" that are parts of the Divine Collective Unconscious, meaning the Deep Dark Sea of Imagination, where images are forms of ideas. Images are the only way to realize these deep inner layers of Mind and that I Am before the many copies. Tarot is one of the successful Image languages that has evolved over time.
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 and knows all forms as her- Self awareness.
The Tarot Queens all represent the Water in each suit. Water being Consciousness and emotion. They are enthroned in the Element of Consciousness and as emotion make it bring forth the Force of the King, by realization and understanding that which develops that force. As consciousness does to emotionally charged idea.
The Queen of Disks, often called the Queen of Pentacles, is also Queen of the Thrones of Earth; 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". Water is the "living blood" of the planet.
The Thoth Deck Queen of Disks is displaying her ruler ship over earth as shown in the crystal cubed scepter that has within it a 3-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 a 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.
A person born under her the calendar dates of December 13 - January 9, the Queen of Pentacles (Traditional Tarot) on the above archetypal wheel, share her characteristics.
