3 | empress


General Aspects:

Patriarchal, conquerors, man-made laws, speaking, discipline, duality, antithesis


In the Piscean Age, the EMPRESS tries to express the love she feels, but she fears that for which she longs and shields herself from physical contact. The real woman behind the feminine mystique is rarely known, hiding her powerful self from all who encounter her. She understands her EMPEROR husband; she stands under him. The EMPRESS no longer has the matriarchal right to reign upon her throne, for now she is the wife of the EMPEROR who rules with the iron hand of the patriarchal world of reason and man-made laws. Now she serves and hears the children and is protected by her husband's sword. Deep within her, she knows she controls the inner law of the soul.

Interpreted use:

You are the EMPRESS, the understanding one. Rule with your love.

Reversed (card received upside down):

Stop mirroring love from the shield alone; let your feelings speak.
