The Empress ~ The Wisdom of Love!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is The Empress, representing: Love, divine beauty, creativity and wisdom. I love this image of The Empress, she’s from a fifteenth Century deck—the Visconti Tarocchi—and I have her framed in my office. What I love most about her depiction is that she’s not a young, booty-licious babe, she’s a real woman—a Goddess incarnate—curvy, ripe and filled with the wisdom that only comes from time (and a few wrinkles!)
The Empress is strong, powerful and fully evolved. Her shield carries the emblem of the Eagle, representing vision, wisdom and connection to spirit. She is mother, lover; ruler and seer, and you feel a sense of well-being in her presence.
She’s ruled by Venus—a planet so brilliant we call her a star. She radiates a luminous intelligence, and we cannot help but be attracted to her satiety, her light. Venus is the planet that inspired the childhood rhyme: “Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight. I wish I may I wish I might, to get the wish I wish I tonight.”
Ultimately, The Empress represents Divine Beauty—a beauty that comes from our heart, from our soul. She reminds us that the more comfortable and confident you are with yourself, the more you will attract love that meets you at your highest level.
Wishing you a beautiful week!
