Card of the Week: The Empress

The Empress from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

I drew The Empress from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck for the card of the week.

The Empress depicts a Mother Goddess type of woman; she is sitting in a vast lush, meadow. She is the embodiment of fertility, love, emotion, and abundance. She also symbolizes the creation and sustaining of life through loving care and devotion. The Empress may also symbolize giving yourself emotionally.

This is a week of nurturing and abundance. Take comfort in what is around you. Allow yourself to be nurtured and taken care of. Go to a place that makes you feel safe and comfortable. This could be in your home, or the home of a friend or relative. Did someone offer to make you a home-cooked meal? Take them up on it.

Go out into nature and feel the energy, it will revitalize you. For my friends up North, go to an indoor greenhouse or botanical garden. Spend time with your pets or caring for your houseplants.

This week, nurture and love YOU and do that which brings you comfort.
