Tarot cards : the empress by Tidi-Lebre Tarot cards : the empress by Tidi-Lebre
The Empress (L'Imperatrice)
The Daughter of the Mighty Ones


Having decided what shape his future will take, the Fool strides forward. But he is impatient to make his future a full-grown reality. This is when he comes upon the Empress. Hair gold as wheat, a crown of stars, a white gown dotted with pomegranates. She rests back on her throne surrounded by an abundance of grain and a lush garden. It is possible that she is pregnant.

Kneeling, the Fool relates to her his story. And she, in turn, smiles a motherly smile and gently gives him this advice: "Like newly planted grain or a child in the womb, a new life, a new love, a new creation is fragile. It requires fertile soil, patience and nurturing, it needs love and attention. Only this will bring it to fruition." Understanding at last that his future will take time to build and create, the Fool thanks the Empress and continues on his way.


Divinatory meaning

Upright - The promotion of well-being and security. Creativeness in financial affairs, love and parenthood. Maternal care, domestic stability, abundance and material wealth. Fertility, security, achievement of goals and growth. Depending on surrounding cards - sometimes marriage and pregnancy.

Ill Dignified or Reversed - Possible domestic problems, financial difficulties, lack of affection and achievement. Creative blocks and possible problems with a relationship. Infertility, sterility or promiscuity and/or unwanted pregnancy. Poverty.

Absolutely beautiful work.
I myself do not believe in the tarot, but I do believe that this constitutes an absolutely gorgeous piece of artwork. I hope that when I find an artist to work with me on my goal, they're half as good as your work here.
