The Empress

Card: The Empress #3 Major Arcana

Description: Empress sits on a cushioned seat. She is dressed in a long flowing gown decorated with pomegranates. She wears a crown of stars and holds a round balled scepter in her right hand. Behind her is a lush forest with a clear, blue watered stream flowing through it. Overhead is a bright, yellow sky. Before her grows yellow wheat. Her throne is decorated with a heart on which is engraved the symbol of Venus.

My thoughts: A benevolent queen who rules over nature.

Traditional meaning: nature, birth, life, creation
Reversed: infertility, poverty
