THE CARD’S STORY BY: HOLLY MORNINGSTAR
I chose the Norse goddess, Frigg, the goddess of marriage, love, childbirth, and domestic arts, which seemed to fit the card’s message nicely. I connected emotionally to this card, as I was pregnant when it was assigned to me. Since Frigg is also known for spinning the threads of fate on her wheel, I decided to depict her with a red ribbon as flower petals fall from the ethereal sky around her. I also included a leaping rabbit, as another fertility symbol, and reminder to look before leaping. Frigg is wearing a green gown to represent her connection to Earth and the domestic arts.
THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN
Frigg gazes up into the sky, but even now, “at rest”, the ever practical, busy goddess is weaving ribbons through her hands as she contemplates her next task to complete, as signs of abundance, petals and a bunny bound around her. Versatility and practicality are needed right now. Don’t get caught up in flights of fancy, making plans that will never come true. You have too much on your plate to get distracted like that. Play to your strength, find realistic ways to get the job done, so you have the time to maintain balance in your home life (and your self-care)! The Queen of Pentacles can also represent a maternal, welcoming figure in your life – warm, caring this person manages to keep their temper and is unflappable, regardless of the chaos around them.
FRIGG / FRIGGA In Norse mythology, Frigg (also known by her English name of Frigga) was in eff ect the queen of the Norse pantheon, wife of Odin, the leader of the Aesir. She was the goddess of fertility and motherhood, and the most famous of legends involving her tells of her attempts to protect her son, Balder, who dreamt of his own death. Frigg went around every living creature in the world, and got them to promise that they would not harm her son…unfortunately she missed mistletoe…which did not seem important, until an arrow made out of mistletoe was fi red at him, pierced his heart and killed him. Frigg’s practicality, and the way she managed to juggle tasks, while making her family a big priority meant that she is a perfect Mythical Queen of Pentacles.
