The Queen Of Pentacles


For quite some time now I have been wanting to create an altered book of spells and rituals. I have also wanted to do one on the properties of gemstones and herbs. And, I have been wanting to do a tarot deck for what seems like forever.


I have scraps of paper everywhere with notes and ideas, all just waiting for the perfect old book to come along to be altered. I love the idea of a large voluminous book holding secrets and possibilities. But I just have not been able to find the book that fits my vision so I have given up. Instead I have decided to do a journal of sorts combing all of the projects in one place. I think I am going to make it a loose leaf binder so I can add or subtract pages and "chapters" as the mood strikes me.
I started with a tarot page based on the Queen of Pentacles. With the economy being on every ones mind these days I guess starting with the Queen of Pentacles was only right. After all, money, success, and wealth in all things important are what we all hope for.

What a great idea...and some awesome pages you've done. Yes, money/wealth is on all our minds these days so what a great way to begin this journey you've began. Tell me, what do the 4's mean?
Peace & Love,
~Barb~

Thanks for your recent visit and comment on my blog post....I love your collages they are gorgeous, colours, sentiments and flow of them are lovely....You know it is hard to get around the idea of 'money' being just another energetic entity...I hope we all can get to a place one day when we truly believe we all have enough to survive, thrive, prosper, share, love, live and laugh....something anyway I am really trying to work on...thanks so much for sharing.
Love to see the rest of your tarot cards : )
