Queen Of Earth card meaning: “The Queen Of Earth symbolizes a real, authentic, earth mother personality. She is larger than life and possesses an abundant, generous and grounded nature.
She is realistic, but also sees magic everywhere. She is an earth mother who spends a great deal of time covered in soil, and is not unknown for her to walk around oblivious to the leaves and twigs in her hair.
She adores creating a warm and inviting home where all are welcome. Cooking, cleaning and gardening – these are things she loves, and she enjoys them all the more because of her tactile and sensual nature. She is a woman who loves nothing more than using her hands to touch, connect and create.
The Queen Of Earth is the epitome of kindness; she will offer support, and nurture your every endeavour, while also offering wise and honest counsel.
She comes to ask if this is how you see yourself. Or have you been so focused on business undertakings and career that you have created an imbalance in your life and disconnect from your true nature? Is it time for you to enjoy the benefits of being a homebody for a while? Maybe a home cooked meal, or a weekend out in the garden is on the agenda, instead of meetings and reports.
The Queen Of Earth may also appear in your reading at times when you find yourself in need of a gentle reminder to be both nurturing and supportive of those around you. While you encourage and support others in their desire to better themselves, remember to do so without trying to change them.
In her role as wise-woman, she may be asking that you seek out those who embody her energy. Perhaps there is a need for you to connect with a motherly role model at this time. Maybe all you need is a hug, but you may also be facing issues that her fertile mind and natural wisdom can help you with. A little motherly advice may unlock an answer and provide a solution.”
Potential Blockage: Queen Of Earth as Challenger will appear in our reading for two reasons. The first is to caution against making the home a hiding place, where you shut out those who care about you. Yes, we all need a sanctuary, but our periods of isolation should always be temporary. The Queen Of Earth seeks to remind you that you are not meant to be alone; there are people who love you and support you. Let them in.
The Queen Of Earth as Challenger may also be cautioning you against smothering those around you. There is a difference between mothering and overwhelming, or worse, disempowering someone through too much care and attention. Take a step back and allow those around you to act for themselves. In fact, encourage them to act for themselves. You might enjoy what you do for others, but there comes a time when those around you must learn to look after themselves, or at least share in the household responsibilities.”*

If you are feeling scattered, distracted or disconnected, you are being called back to ground and reconnect with the Earth herself. That part of you that embodies the Earth Mother. Slowing down and finding your roots again. Get outside barefoot on the Earth. Breathe the fresh air. Take the time to stop, look, smell and love each and every flower you pass. Feel the wind in your hair. Count the stars. Host a picnic with some close friends or family and make it technology free!
We are so overwhelmed with media and technology. So much chaos going on in the world, it is easy to feel like you are drowning in it. Add responsibilities, work, paying the bills and we can create this little spiral of worry, angst and fear. The natural world is the only solution. The Mother is calling you home.
What can you do today to reconnect with Her? Can you get outside, soles of your feet on the grass and face tilted up to the sky? Can you take a walk on the beach, toes in the sand? Even just sitting in the sun for a few minutes can give you a boost of energy and vitality. Add some nice, deep slow breaths. Maybe some movement, yoga, flowing, dancing, stretching. Back against a tree, eyes closed, just Being.
Do that and reconnect. Come back to the present moment. Back to yourself.
