Family, Friends & Relationships:
People are going to be more attracted to you than usual (in every sense) and you are likely to find people on your doorstep, wanting your advice/your shoulder to cry on. This will be beneficial to you because you are now going to be able to see yourself more in the way that others see you; as someone with wisdom and a lot to offer. So share your hard-won perspectives on life with others and know that your wisdom and caring is valuable. That doesn’t mean you should run yourself into the ground doing so. If boundaries need to be drawn (for either physical or emotional reasons) then draw them.

The Empress is an archetype of feminine power; she is watery, hard to fathom, mysterious, fertile, and sexual. She augurs a need for us to be in touch with our feminine side, to listen to our intuition, and to give priority to our emotions and passions. The Empress does not play by the rules. She has her own way of doing things and her own idea of what is right and what is wrong in any and all endeavors. That doesn’t mean she will always get her way, but she is a reminder not to ignore your creative and intuitive side. She can signify coming abundance but don’t make the mistake of thinking that that will always mean financially. There are many types of wealth and richness in life and money is only one of them. The Empress can encompass any or all of them.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: This exquisite deck was owned by the Venier family of Venice. Most likely produced around 1491 by artist Nicola di Maestro Antonio, the Sola-Busca deck consists of seventy-eight cards and is unique in that each card is illustrated with characters based on figures of classical antiquity. Some authors believe that the symbolism of this deck derives from alchemical theories about transforming base metals into gold. The practice of illustrating each of the seventy-eight tarot cards with a unique scene or character would not be repeated until Pamela Colman Smith painted the now famous Rider-Waite-Smith deck in 1909.

Portable Magic: In the illustration, the modifier the Empress (Venus) has been put on the sign Libra and the zodiacal trump Justice, which is in the solar sect. The modifier the Tower (Mars) has been put on the sign Aries and the zodiacal trump the Emperor, in the lunar sect. The aspect between the modifier trump the Sun and the modifier trump the Empress is the benign sextile aspect. The aspect between the modifier the Sun and the modifier the Tower is the harmonious trine aspect. The Empress and the Tower are in an opposition aspect to each other, which creates a dynamic tension, not necessarily a bad thing because it generates energy.
Reversed Cards: If you ever wanted to know why this card is so attractive, look no further than its planetary influence, Venus. Venus, which is connected to the Empress, wants to make all her children happy, so she shows them all that is possible. But like all good parents, she doesnt walk the path for you. No, that part is all you. If this card has shown up in the retrograde aspect, you may be feeling abandoned or alone on your quest for success, happiness, and fulfillment, but the truth is you have not been forsaken. Quite the opposite. You probably just missed the open door left by the Divine Mother for you to walk through. Retrace your steps or look at the cards before this one to see clues you overlooked in your haste to get to the end result.

Tarot Triumphs: Another female figure follows, also on a throne, but bearing the crown, orb, and shield of the Empress. She is regal, haughty, and she glances sternly around the crowd, quelling the questioning chatter. She wears a gold chain around her neck, and on her shield is the imperial eagle, which brooks no argument. Perhaps she is pregnant? Her stomach swells a little; she may be producing an heir. Only some people notice this, and they smile secretly to themselves. Even monarchs must make love and perpetuate their family line. This way, they can feel a kinship with their Empress. She casts her glance to one side now, either immersed in her own thoughts or disdaining to look upon commoners.
