Career, Work Or Retirement:

Things should be going very well for you at work right now, but if they’re not then this card indicates that things will get better. Things may not be perfect when they do but they will be significantly better. People will be inspired by your ideas, your passions, and your way of doing things. Let your inner voice guide you in how you operate. The Empress directs us to follow our bliss, and that the rest will follow. In this analytical day and age where everything seems to be quantified down to the nth degree most companies reward left-brain thinking and ignore the creative right-brain side of things. As with most endeavors there should be balance and that is also what The Empress is all about. Without creativity so much becomes merely mundane.

Card Meanings: Harmony, Development, Nature, Motherhood, Fertility, Accomplishment Action, Femininity, Evolution, Creativity, Sensuality, Nurturing, Beauty, Pregnancy

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.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: One day in a classroom discussion I mentioned that I was impressed by something I had read about astrology. The nun’s ears perked up, and a look of alarm spread across her face. Hadn’t the good sisters warned us that true prophecy comes from God and any other form of future casting is the work of the devil? Whatever is forbidden, however, becomes more appealing. It wasn’t long before I began to study astrology in earnest.

Complete Book of Tarot: When upright, the Empress symbolizes fertility, pregnancy, motherhood, sensuality and creative imagination. This card may herald an impending marriage, the desire to have children, or the birth of a child. You are entering a period of productivity and abundance, often in the form of offspring of either the body or the mind. You are capable of great productivity as you assist the passage of your creative ideas through their birth canal. Support and nurturing are available. It is important to exercise proper care of the body at this time.

Reversed Cards: If the upright version of this card alludes to the courting dance of the Emperor and the Empress, then here in the retrograde aspect we see a time-out of the relationship altogether. As if sensing that now is not the time to begin something new, you are being asked to go back and reassess everything you know about your current situation. Take this time-out to explore what is really being offered here. Use all that detailed energy of the four to examine every tiny detail, for only then will you know if moving forward and courting a new person, idea, or position is a good use of your 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 doesn’t 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.
