The Empress

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

I think it describes me well!

Hi Debbie,
What a stunning tarot card. I usually use angel cards, or the Mythical tarot, and the Tarot of the Old Path. Never did get on with Ryder Wyatt.
I adore dragons and have so many in the home, including cross stitches that I've done in the past. They encompass so much within them.
Thank you for a wonderful expression of the Goddess today. Only another 5 weeks and Spring Equinox will be here. Demeter rejoicing in the return of her daughter by bringing forth the earth in all her glory.
