The Empress - 3

The Empress is an earthly figure who symbolizes mother nature. The scenery around The Empress is very lush, there is food and sun and greenery around her showing you that you have everything you need to sustain yourself and reminding us that there is enough for everyone to share in. She offers you the gifts of the earth which mother nature provides.

The Empress is relaxed and flowing, especially when contrasted with The Emperor who is about structure.

Symbolism:
Waterfall: a sign of motion, emotions and abundance. The Empress can open up her intuitive abilities and abundance flows easily through her.
Wheat: A symbol of nourishment.



Readings:
