Tarot - Arcanum #3 - The Empress
    #1600950 - 06/02/03 11:07 AM (14 years, 27 days ago)

Preface: Studying the tarot, on the empress card right now. I am not proceeding chronologically but how the cards happen to be when i removed them from my collection. So far I have studied and understood Strength and Justice, but the empress still puzzles me - so

Thoughts/data/info anyone wishes to share - appreciated!!

I used to have this neat little green-cloth-bound book called The Key to the Tarot, but unfortunately it is no longer in my bookcase for some reason.  I'm not really sure what happened to it.  I don't remember any of the card meanings, either, as it was a few years back when I tried playing with Tarot cards.  I only ever learned the Major Arcana or whatever it's called, and I use the term "learned" loosely! :wink:

Good luck, though.  I remember my friend giving me some pretty crazy-ass right on readings back in the day.  Peace!

first what tarot are you using ? Marseille ? Riddlerwaite ? etc...
the empress looks so different from tarot to tarot...mine is an old parisian tarot on wich the empress lokk like a dominant and possessive witch...but i know she can be all the contrary...on other tarot decks i saw that she was drawn like a beautiful, feminine and sensual woman...

The Empress and the High Priestess are the two halves of the female archetype in the major arcana. The Empress represents the fertile, life-giving Mother who reigns over the bounty of nature and the rhythms of the Earth. From her comes all the pleasures and joys of the senses and the abundance of new life in all its forms. The Empress encourages you to strengthen your connections with the natural world which is the ground of our being. Too often false sophistications and pleasures take us far from our roots. Let the Empress remind you to keep your feet firmly planted in the Earth.
In readings the Empress can refer to any aspect of Motherhood. She can be an individual mother, but as a major arcana card, she also goes beyond the specifics of mothering to its essence - the creation of life and its sustenance through loving care and attention.
The Empress can also represent lavish abundance of all kinds. She offers a cornucopia of delights, especially thoses of the senses - food, pleasure, and beauty. She can suggest material reward, but only with the understanding that riches go with a generous and open spirit. The Empress asks you to embrace the principle of life and enjoy its bountiful goodness.

Good and evil loose all objective meaning and are seen as equally necessary and contrasting elements in the masterpiece that is the universe.
