Romance, Love Or Relationships:
When The Empress appears in a love-related reading, you could suddenly find yourself being pursued by several prospective Lovers. If you are in a committed relationship, this card reminds you even when reversed to pay particular attention to your intuition about the relationship. Again, the message of The Empress is to trust your instincts and your intuition, and follow your heart. If you do not you will one day regret it.
Card Meanings: Inaction, Overbearing Tendencies, Lack Of Confidence, Infertility, Anxiety, Insecurity, Infidelity, Disharmony, Lack On Concentration, Lack Of Growth, Vacillation
The Empress is the embodiment of womanhood. She covers all aspects of love, beauty and female strength. Her throne is one built of endurance, tenacity, loyalty and sheer determination. She stands for the mother, and for the daughter…..who will in turn become mother. And at her highest level, the Empress also represents the Great Mother in her aspect of protector, nurturer, teacher, lover, and friend. Here are all the elements of compassion, unconditional love and acceptance that comes from a pure and unadulterated relationship with the Goddess. In recent times we have tended to overlook the importance of the innate strength in womanhood. We can get blinded by the dynamic power inherent in male strength, and completely forget the necessity for the counter-balancing influence of female power.
There’s nothing mushy about this power – it’s no accident that many Goddesses are regarded as destroyers – but it is infinitely different to male strength. The entire dynamic of its expression is unique and enduring. On a day ruled by the Empress, we need to be trying to touch the Goddess – either within or without. You’ll see Her gentle beauty in a thousand places if you look for it. We also need to be considering love, and the ways in which we express love and receive love in our lives. It’s a good exercise to try out every now and again, anyhow. When we run a quick check on the level of love in our lives as a regular thing, we find it much harder to make the mistake of taking it for granted. On a more mundane level, this is a time to think of mothers – you, if you are one; your mother; the concept of motherhood. And finally, again we need to take that back to whatever we regard as the highest principle of mothering in our lives.
And by the way – just because I have talked a lot about women, and mothers, I am not excluding men. You have many of these same qualities within your nature too. So get in touch with them!

Portable Magic: The question becomes, ‘Which of the two sects should the five lesser planets occupy?’ For example, should the planetary trump the Magician, representing the active power of Mercury, be placed on the Lovers in the lunar sect, or on the Hermit in the solar sect? We don’t need to ask this question of the greater planets, the Sun and Moon, since they rule only one sign each.

Tarot Triumphs: The Empress is a female figurehead of the physical world, in contrast with the High Priestess as the female authority of the inner life. The Empress’s popularity among her people does not depend entirely on an external show of pomp and pageantry, but also on the way she is seen handling her private domain in palace or castle. The equivalent in modern times is the hunger of the public for details of the private lives of the royals. Ruling an empire successfully requires creating a certain rapport with one’s subjects, and the skillful Empress will understand just how much of her personality to display and what to keep private. A monarch who tries to conceal her domestic life completely will be perceived as rigid, arrogant, and unreal. However, she has to conceal certain things; she has to hide her personal feelings for much of the time, and she must not show weakness unless it is advantageous for her to do so. Her personal and public strength, therefore, is built through these tests and rigors.
