Card Reading

The Empress

The Empress tarot card

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 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 with 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. As the empress is connected to the earth element in work she brings with her a nurturing move on the part of an employer or employee. Something is delicate, almost born. It can mean that you might be aiming high but you need time to develop yourself. The empress also indicates that one must be guided firmly but surely if contemplating a new career path.

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 Queen of Swords

The Queen of Swords tarot card

When you have received the Queen of Swords in your reading, you are seen as an assertive perfectionist who is also hyper protective and ambitious.

A mother figure as well as a knowledgeable leader is often the embodiment represented by the Queen of Swords. You have ideas that are ruled by the drive of the heart which is what makes you so uniquely you, and someone that others enjoy being around and depending on. You are highly informed and an excellent communicator. There is very little that consistently confuses you because you are so good at figuring things out, and when others need assistance creating a plan, they come to you to help them organize their life. This card is the representative of the sheer force of will to achieve, to better one’s journey in life, to better one’s self.

The image of the Queen of Swords as it appears in the Rider Waite Deck shows an image of a Queen who is sitting very regally on her high throne staring off into the sky. Her sword is raised in her left hand, which suggests an almost daring nature, daring others to try to throw her from her throne. She will have none of it. The base of her thrown is decorated with butterflies, which are symbolic of the soul. This card is symbolic of a brown haired brown eyed woman.

She is keen and quick witted and often representative of someone who has put a lot behind her in her life. She may be a widow or someone who is unable to bear children. There is a sense of longing or mourning within her strength, longing for those that is far from her. This card can stand for widowhood, mourning, kindness but with a firm hand, gracefulness and observation as well as a fondness for dancing.

When one is having a hard time, there is no one better to go to then the Queen of Swords, for she will put your life into perspective like no other. If you tend to be referred to as someone who is very similar to these character traits then know that you are going through a phase in which all of your skills will be fine-tuned. The Queen of Swords is going to be blessing you with productivity. If you do not feel that you are currently this kind of person, then you are either going to be blessed by learning how to become adept at this kind of behavior or you are going to run into someone who is going to play this role in your life.

The Queen of Swords is someone who is a great counselor with a sharp wit and she knows how to give just the right kind of assistance. Her mental processes are developed, and she has a great spiritual depth through her experience with long troubles which makes her a master of her circumstances. Always seek the clarity that comes with the truth. You need to not allow yourself to get caught up in the lies and drama of those around you because that is counterproductive.

The counselor that is within you is waking up at this time and she seeks clarification so that you can get to the bottom of things. She uses her strength of character and her intellect to free herself of the chains of doubt and fear. She looks at the world that is caught up in drama with disdain and frustration, but at the same time she opens up her hands to it so that she can help if necessary. The clouds may surround her, but her head remains clear in the air of the real truth. She sees no restriction of gender; she is a fierce, strong, and empowered woman. You must at this time be at peace with yourself, accept whatever happens without losing your cool. Allow the negative that comes your way to be absorbed by your counseling, positive mind. See through the illusions that the world presents.

The Queen of Swords in Love

The Queen of Swords gets what she wants. She is a fiercely independent woman who doesn’t need anyone to be happy. She is content with who she has become and the years have made her wise as well as brave. When it comes to acquiring the love of another, she does not need it but she may be in the position of desiring it just to have the company. Therefore this is a time in your life to start to selectively pick and choose the kind of people that you want in your life, and if a romantic partner is on your list of desires, then begin to make that known. Start to search for the right person who can fit your independent nature. You cannot be an equal partner with someone who is less then you in any way, be it emotionally, physically or financially, so you must begin to work the mental magic out to begin attracting someone who will compliment you.

The Queen of Swords in Health

Sometimes your stubbornness gets the best of you. You may be avoiding a doctor’s appointment, but now is not the time to be so stubborn. If you have something going on in your body that you do not quite understand, then it is time to go to the doctor and get it figured out. No you do not need help, not really, but there is a difference between being independent and being callous in choices that are important.

The Queen of Swords in Work and Wealth

The Queen of Swords tells others what they must do. Therefore if this Queen is transiting your reading regarding Work and Wealth then you must pay attention for opportunities that will present themselves that make it possible for you to be in charge. You will know that a position or opportunity is right for you because you will automatically feel compelled to take control of it, simply because you know what you are doing. Start advertising for yourself. Now is an excellent time to pursue going into a business venture of your own.


Reversed Meaning - Queen of Swords

You have potential that you are as of now, ignoring. You have put up walls around yourself and you are becoming too introspective and hermit like. Almost as if you are so convinced that you know the right way of being for everyone else, who you tend to be right about, that you no longer want to go outside and interact with others because you know what is best. It is almost as if at this point you know too much. But you need to know that the people that exist in your life who are intolerant only have a narrow outlook and that is something that you need to avoid at all costs. But you need to also remember that you needn’t internalize someone else’s beliefs. Their perception is their own and it has nothing to do with you. Let go of your attachment to what others think, and let go of the attachment that you will be able to help everyone, because frankly, you won’t be able to.
