The Empress - Major Arcana Tarot Card #3

Excerpt from the Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy

III. The Empress~

The Empress is the archetypal Earth Mother, The Feminine Principle, and the Goddess of Fertility in the Tarot. Ruled by Venus (the planet of love and harmony), this femme figure radiates with a deep understanding of relationships and a regenerating realization of beauty. In a reading, the appearance of The Empress indicates that the querent is ready to make their life better by bringing cooperation into their environment; the querent is also ready to embody empathy and to recognize their power as someone endowed with a distinct ability to listen and understand. When this card appears, rejoice. Receptivity is a sacred link to the souls of others, and an invisible wire connecting to the heart of the world.
