Queen of Pentacles - The Strawberry Moon

I think it is fitting to draw the Queen of Pentacles during the Strawberry Moon, or sometimes referred to the Hot Moon or Rose Moon. The Queen being woman with deep connection to the earth and all it's fecundity. She is really represents the Mother of all, or what many refer to as being Mother Earth.

This is the month of my birth, June 4th 1953. I was two days late from being born on the Queen's Jubilee, born the biggest hairy baby in the hospital  at the time, shall we say, with a full head of hair, weighing 12 pounds. I am not so often late any more, as I have decreased my procrastination affliction, my hair is thinning, and I could still stand to loose a few pounds!

I love seeing all the new growth of trees, flowers and everything else that comes to life in the Spring, and the smell of the earth after a rain is intoxicating. Getting my hands and toes into the new earth with all of it's healing properties really lifts the spirits, and always reminds me how I need to stay grounded in the earth, and to do what I must to maintain a stable and healthy lifestyle.

Life is unpredictable and things happen to threaten our sense of security and stability. But if I can live my life as a loose garment, and go with the flow, this is where my sense of security through connection, can reside, built on the firm foundation of faith, and trust in my relationships with myself, with others, and with the God of my understanding.

Beautiful Post Cath. I've seen this queen popping up on several blogs the last few days. We've had a lot of rain here so all the leafs are luscious green. No strawberries yet in my garden. it is more a Green Leaf Moon for me; Just like you I am enjoying being outside and watch how nature puts on her green dress.And it smells so good after a rainstorm

Thank you Ellen. Yes it has been raining lots here too. Definitely a Green Leaf Moon! No strawberries here either, rhubarb is coming up real good! Time to mow the lawn again, first time it grows so fast like a weed. Smells so sweet. My young lilac tree is full of lilacs to come in the next week or so! They smell so good I could eat them! Lol
