Card Reading

The Empress

The Empress represents mothering love, an authority figure that is looking out for you and is often a kind guardian.

She is wise and has attained her place in the hierarchy of the older tarot through her own missteps and finding her way. She has learned her lessons and is now in a position to bestow her wisdom upon you. This is usually a motherly representation in one way or another indicating that you need to look out for someone around you or that someone is looking out for you. She can be represented as an older woman with authority in her own right that has come from wisdom and experience.

The Empress also represents a pure form of extroverted abundance. If you have received this card in your reading, you are going to be well taken care of. You will get everything that you desire and more. The Empress sits on her throne made of cushion and revels in luxury and her station in life. She is depicted in the tarot with a field of wheat outstretched before her which is sacred to the Egyptian Goddess Isis. She wears a crown of twelve stars with six points, illustrating her control over the cosmos. The Empress card symbolizes the Land of Milk and Honey after a long journey of hard labor and introspection. She is the Universal Goddess: Isis Unveiled, fertile, strong and dynamic. She is also Venus, Goddess of love: plump and curvy, attracting wealth like a magnet. This woman is the epitome of female strength as well as a symbol of ultimate abundance. Your needs will be fulfilled with joy and satisfaction. There is no need to fear. Having the Empress on your side is like having a fierce mother, protecting you always. Receiving this card in your reading means that you are making the right decision, that you are supported, and that there is a vast array of possibility for abundance currently transiting around you. Many rewards are coming your way.

The Empress, governed by so many feminine energies is pure emotion and deep intuitive understanding. The lessons that you have learned in your life will now continue to benefit you. As apply what you learn, you will reap the benefits of emotional rewards. She encourages you to express unfiltered emotions because you can, and because you have earned the right to do so.

The Empress In Love

When the Empress shows herself in a reading about Love, be prepared to go through a cycle of being worshipped. Love is in the air when you are the Empress; everyone wants to be close to you because you are The God/Goddess of Love. How can they resist you? It is practically impossible. This is your time to say what you want exactly the way that you want it and have others rush to your side to provide it. Take this time to be a little selfish; do not compromise your beliefs or your integrity for anyone that isn’t similar to you. Take this opportunity to attract someone fantastic, that matches your energy, and let it happen. Now is the time.

The Empress in Health


When the Empress comes up in a reading where health is mentioned, she is telling you that you have been working too hard and it is time stop and smell the roses. You likely are in a place where you can enjoy the rewards of your hard efforts and look upon them from a comfy chair overlooking the ocean and be pleased with what you have been able to accomplish. The act of healing from a busy time is just as important as any other preventative measure one to protect their health. When stress is allowed to eat at the body, it begins to disintegrate. The Empress informs you that you need to give yourself the time off that you deserve so that you can have the perspective of a job well done. The Empress also weighs in on reproductive health. If you are trying to get pregnant or are pregnant, this card bodes well for you because you have her support. If you are trying to increase circulation or need to focus on feminine issues, the Empress will help you.

The Empress in Work and Wealth

Now is the time to invest, to perpetuate stock, and to place a bet on a horse. Anything that brings you peace and relaxation where you can enjoy the fruit of your labor is going to coincide with the energies of the Empress. If your reading is work related and you are trying to figure out whether or not to take your business to another level, the Empress tells you to not make a decision now. In fact this may be a time to step away from work. Take or plan a vacation and enjoy the moment rather than constantly trying to find ways to make more money. Often this card will come up when you are at risk of spreading yourself too thin. Do not make large decisions regarding change of employment or financial issues. If you are seeking work, the Empress says that it is going to take time. Even in the most dire situations there are solutions that can be found and likely others that are willing to help you get on your feet until a more productive air is around you.

Reversed Empress in a reading

The Empress in the reversed position is symbolic of infertility, inconclusiveness, lack of abundance and confusion as well as instability and sometimes financial issues. This happens when one is too caught up in attempting to make everything perfect and there is never any rest to gather perspective. This also means that you need to use caution in your spending habits so as to not flitter away financial resources. Take care to set up a nest egg for yourself so that you might be prepared should something go wrong. Question your poverty mindset and your feelings toward money or abundance. Do you feel worthy of relaxation? Of reaping the benefits that you have sewn after hard work? Do you feel as though it is impossible to catch up? Ask the Empress to help heal your poverty mindset so that you can reap the benefits of the abundance that she has to offer you.

The Hierophant

The Hierophant is the ruling power of external religion.

It is representative of the need to be accepted by society, of conforming to the norms presented all around us. Sometimes this card is representative of feeling like an outcast, judged by society and sometimes this is the card that represents one’s own desires to be a part of the religious world. The Hierophant expresses that life is your teacher, providing you with lessons to learn for growth opportunities and the understanding that conflicting issues exist for the purpose of bringing new growth into your life. When you start to feel pressed down by the ‘shoulds’ in life, remember to listen to that higher source energy, or teacher that will show you the way. The Hierophant provides you a way to gather conscious thoughts into your minds that are fed into the subconscious which assimilates and then provides you flashes of intuition. This intuition is the kind that actually stretches forth from our human desire to participate in religious beliefs, which require that overarching hierarchy.

 

Making a wish for another person puts divine power into action. This is why prayer is so important in most religions. The act of being compassionate, of giving over your faith to a higher power to help those we love or those we don’t know provides a reverence and humbleness that is important to improve one’s character. The Hierophant’s message is for you to take your concern to God and to pray, and to allow the stillness and peace of your prayers to bring calmness to your heart and intuition to your mind.

 

The triple cross designs on the robes of the Hierophant represent spiritual respiration. The love of nature, love of God and the love of one’s neighbors are a part of the hierarchies housed within higher source energy. Reflecting on new interests, decisions, excitement and provide a development of self. Share wisdom with others – you are a teacher.

 

The Hierophant in Love

 

The Hierophant teaches a different kind of love in reference to relationships. This is a reverent love, almost sacred. That of doing “unto others what you would have them do unto you.” This is the love of charity, of helping your fellow man. If you have received this card for a love reading then there is something that you need to learn from giving up some of your time and energy to a charity. This could also apply to friend relationships that are close enough in spirituality that you would almost call them your sister or brother. This card will usually come up when it is time for you to focus on helping one another. There is a lack of a sense of self, and an emphasis on charity. When you give of yourself in this way you are creating a cycle of love that is going to be gifted back to you, because what you say is true to the Universe is true. And if you love enough to give love, then you will receive more in return.

 

The Hierophant in Health

 

Emotional issues come into the spread when the Hierophant is present. Many who experience some level of religious or spiritual restriction in one way or another are suffering some kind of energy block within their body. Consider the help that can come from giving of your time, experiencing the perspective of understanding that there are others in this world that have it worse than you do so that you can be grateful for what you do have. This will greatly improve your health.

 

Often the Hierophant is a card about seeking help as well. Usually this card will come up when dealing with intense emotion and can signify the need for counseling or guidance. If you are going through an exceptionally difficult time in your life it is okay to ask others around you for assistance or find ways to learn new coping skills so that you can grow and move forward.

 

The Hierophant in Work and Wealth

 

The Hierophant in a business venture states clearly that your focus needs to be on spiritual endeavors instead of monetary ones. If you find that work and the acquisition of wealth is not working out the way that you would prefer, then the Hierophant says to take a break out of your normal routine and examine what necessities you have and need, and which are luxuries that are actually weighing you down. Consider giving up something of yours to help someone else, or just get rid of it to lighten your personal load.

 

In finances, the card indicates the need for guidance in a similar way as with health. Often it is a note that you need to contact some sort of financial advisor. In readings it can indicate debt reduction skills are needed or even issues concerning the court systems. It is less about paying solicitor fees and more about having to give money to government or charity.

 

As a note: The Hierophant card can indicate tax issues as well.

 

Reversed Meaning - The Hierophant

When the Hierophant appears in a reading in the reversed position, you will have exactly the opposite experience. Instead of feeling compelled to follow a religious and spiritual order that is structured, you will feel more open or care free. You will not feel weighted down by your earthly possessions because they do not own you. One caution to be aware of for the Hierophant reversed position is that you do not become overly superstitious, so much that it gets in the way of leading a happy and healthy life. The Hierophant in the reversed position can also signify being out of balance. Be careful of manic or overspending episodes, being too blunt or honest, or extending your opinion in areas where it is not wanted.
