In “The Spirit of Herbs” by M. Tierra this plant is associated with the Queen of Cups. This Court Royal card is connected to the element of water, more importantly water of water. In the Thoth tarot deck the mother is holding the seashell with a Scorpion in the middle of her chest. The Scorpion can often resemble the archetype Pluto as well as Scorpio. Often the scorpion and serpent are interchangeable. So often the scorpion and serpent get a negative connotation but in reality this symbol is the root of creation and wisdom; with Pluto the power creation through catabolic process. This card is the court royal of motherliness, nurses and doctors.
It is perfectly associated with Alchemilla as this plant is used almost exclusively for a woman’s womb, with some potential application for relaxed tissue states in the digestive tract. We don’t particularly use this plant while pregnant though we do use it to help become pregnant and potentially postnatal. Pregnancy is often seen constitutionally as a water state. Alchemilla collects rain droplets as well as produces its own magical water droplet. This is another example of this plant’s energetic potential of manipulating water.
