Here we meet the Queen of Pentacles. This fine lady sits on a chaise longue with a red velvet cover that matches the curtain behind her, and also the foot stool on which she balances one red shod foot. Her dress is of golden cloth and her crown echoes this, gold embedded with red stones. On the grey rock wall behind her hangs a shield, with tripartite crimson, gold and brown segments and a golden pentacle centrepiece. The pentacle is echoed in the front of the chest that sits beside her chaise longue.
Altogether, there is a feeling of almost decadent wealth here. I imagine that those perky red shoes are just one pair among many, a collection Imelda Marcos would be proud of :D She is a woman who loves luxury, and who feels she deserves it. I see her, too, as someone who has earned it: she works hard for what she has. Though she looks like a delicate blossom, she knows how to make the most of what she has, in every regard.
Well, I'm not a big fan of shoe shopping! So, I guess what I see in this card for myself is the suggestion to take some time and pamper myself. I want to dye my hair, and make some time to meditate. I also need to get some paperwork done - bleuch! Ah well, this too will pass...
I am grateful for quick-and-easy home hair dyes ;)
