The Empress Tarot Card
Designed via Polyvore
Throughout this card, our Empress sits on the precipice of sharing the wealth and being too spoiled to think about others. While the mighty scepter is a symbol of royal power throughout history, hers is a mere bauble, as if the power of her position is yet another trinket. The crown of twelve stars represents the twelve signs of the zodiac and her mastery over anyone of any sign, a power of seduction.
Idle, she indicates plenty of time to be immersed in the joys of life and the pursuit of pleasures. Some Tarot decks illustrate her holding a flower in this hand, also representing this tendency for casual engagement with the niceties of life. The shield nearby is a metaphor for protecting herself with her beauty. If someone were to break her heart she would deflect the hurt by being able to find yet another man of her dreams. The wheat at her feet indicates that the basic needs in life are taken care of. The things over which most people struggle are not even a concern for the Empress. She can be immersed in the good life while most other people are busy earning a living.
Looking into the future position, The Empress card foretells good things when landing here. This is the fairy tale happy ending. When the future holds as much promise as The Empress represents, you can know that a symbol of hope is becoming more real with each passing day. The card here can be an indicator of becoming wealthy or of finding a person who loves and appreciates you as their definition of beauty. The former is true if your reading has been fixated on economic and career questions. The latter is true if you sat down for a soulmate reading.
Love and light,
