This week: The Empress
The Empress favors a nurturing approach to the situation. Whether you are being called to tend to a person or child, a project, or even yourself, this is the time for a little TLC (tender loving care). Be gentle and loving – assume the role of the caretaker. Take care of everyone’s needs as best as you can. Focus on building security for all. Be motherly.
This card also symbolizes motherhood – if you are asking a question about parenting, you’ll want to adapt the Empress’ loving and protective nature.
If you are asking about conceiving a child, this is a sign that the timing is ripe – go ahead with your plans.
The Empress is also associated with creativity – how can you best express yourself? Seek to express your creativity, ideas or thoughts without reservations. Don’t hold back – be open. If you are asking about starting a creative project, this is a green light.
This is also the card of feminine leadership, which means a situation may need a softer approach to reach the goal. We don’t always have to go warlord – sometimes matriarch is a better route to achieving a goal.
The Empress reversed:
Are you giving to the point of exhaustion? Are you caring for everyone else but yourself? If so, you’re on the path to burnout…stat. Pull back and nurture yourself. Take a time out from tending to everyone else’s needs. Make YOU a priority.
This can also be a sign that you have given your power away. It’s time to get that power back. Which could mean you need to set a boundary or take a stand.
Because the Empress is often associated with relationships, this reversal could be advising you to that a relationship is at a critical point – get help or get out.
Questions to ponder:
What are you trying to solve – or create? How can you best nurture the situation or person? How are you meeting other people’s needs – and your own? What steps do you need to take to reclaim your power?
