The Queen of Pentacles Reversed represent someone who is self absorbed, materialistic, disloyal and completely out of touch with what's really important. Basically the Queen of Pentacles is.....unhappy. We've all worked with, or been around people that completely deflate you, like a vampire they suck the energy out of a room. This person is someone you're always careful of what you say around, because it may be used against you in the future. They are easily angered and jealous regarding the success of others, and are manipulative toward anyone that may offer benefit to them.
Be alert to the company you keep, and how they view themselves, the world, and others. There's the saying: "Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future". The people you surround yourself with will have an affect on you, either positive or negative. Be mindful of your own attitude and behavior as well. I'm ashamed to say that I've acted just like what the Queen of Pentacles Reversed represent, and it was only after careful self reflection that I realized the wrongs I've been committing. I consciously look in the mirror every day and ask myself how I can show love, respect and kindness to everyone I come in contact with. Take time to identify any areas you may be overlooking that could lead to tearing someone else down. Every day is an opportunity to be better than yesterday!
The Queen of Pentacles Reversed also reflect greed and an obsession with material things. There is a "scarcity" mentality with this card, looking at the world from a glass half empty perspective. Worry and fear of there not being enough to go around create an unhealthy relationship with money and possessions. There is more than enough for everyone to get their fair share or even more, but perception creates reality. When we add up our blessings, we realize there's a lot we take for granted to be thankful for.

Each of you are hardworking and goal driven, with your own unique skills and talents that complement your partners. Trust and respect in the relationship are never compromised, and the time between being together and alone are in perfect balance. Reward yourselves for the hard work that's been put into the relationship, it is well deserved!
