Artist’s Interpretation and Card Meaning

“This card really struck a chord with me, I’ve always felt a kinship with mother-type figures (being a mother of three myself), and had a fascination with the concept of Mother Nature figures throughout different cultures.

The importance of the figure is that she is holding the coin, as though holding a child. Said to represent her material wealth. One thing I have learned in art history, is the *positioning* of the figure is just as key. She’s cradling the wealth, it also represents her motherly love. So I placed the coin not just in her lap, but mimicking the placement of a pregnant belly, her hands resting on it the way mine often did when I was very round with my babies. Because that, too, is a form of wealth.”

A beautiful woman with lush red lips sits on an opulent thron. On her lap sits a large coin and a jeweled crown adorns her head. She sits within an abundant kelp forest, teeming with life and sheltering her, and she is at the very heart of it. She is successful, not only materially and financially, but also in terms of family and love. Her lips give a hint of sensuous nature of this Queen – she has a full life and she loves every minute of it.

This card represents a figure that has it all, but it has not come easy. Her life is a constant juggle, her mind is constantly whirring, but she embraces it. She is dedicated to her family and team, eager to share the spoils of her work.
