The Empress speaks to the creative, fertile, nurturing and natural aspects of ourselves and our lives. In the big picture sense she represents our home, Earth.
The Empress can be found without exception within every species that replicates itself. She is the true Demeter of Greek mythology, an environmental and Mothering principal interwoven within all human stories, an archetypical constant.
The Empress is bountiful and full, like a pregnant woman in her last trimester, heavy bodied and glowing with life. She is also sense oriented living more closely within the body, like the way every woman knows her baby's intimate and gentling scent. This is a wisdom that is deep, ancient, and truly eternal.
Fertility and creation also extend beyond the biological act of creation; we nurture and care for the planet, our friends, our ideas, our adopted and even furry children. The Empress is so bountiful she is greater even than the biological mothering principal, any act of nurturing and care also represented by her.
