On today’s episode of Tarot for the Wild Soul, we dive deeply into the essence of Queen of Pentacles, The High Priestess and Death with Yaya Erin Rivera Merriman. Yaya is a rebirth doula, herbalist, creative director of Active Culture Family, and the co-facilliator of Medicine Mandala: A Green Magic Apprenticeship.
Queen of Pentacles is the caretaker. They are the caretaker of the parent, of the caretaker themselves. They hold space for us, and ask us to ground more deeply into this body, this vessel. Queen of Pentacles calls us back to the land, and invites us to allow our relationship with nature to unfold and expand our relationship to ourselves. It gently guides us to nourish, nurture, hold, care, and listen. Through doing so, it transforms our connection to support and healing.
