The Abundant Empress Tarot Card
When The Major Arcana Empress Tarot card shows up in a reading spread, you just know abundance is either happening or getting ready to happen in your life. The Empress is an archetype of feminine power, holding the slippery energy of enigmatic outcomes, mystery, fertility and sexuality. She boldly makes the announcement there is a need to be in touch with our feminine side, to listen to our intuition and to give priority to our emotions and passions to have more. In other words, giving in to the wild feminine spirit of being fruitful in life.
The Empress Tarot card indicates that the Universal energy is about to intervene in your life, scooting you out of the driver’s seat and taking over. You may or may not know whom or what brings such good fortune or that miracle you have been waiting for but the care and nurturing that will result from it comes as no accident. What appears to be coincidental good luck may actually be the result of foundations of good choices you have made to bring it about. She strongly makes the statement that it is now your turn to have things work out in your favor, to feel blessed and nurtured.
The Empress does not play by the rules. She has her own way of doing things and her own idea of what is right and what is wrong in any and all endeavors. That doesn’t mean she will always get her way, but she is a reminder not to ignore your creative and intuitive side.
When pulled inverted, the Empress speaks loudly of your personal loss of giving your power away by putting too much emphasis on another person’s emotional or material needs, thus neglecting your own. It can also indicate an indecisiveness concerning others and an emotional confusion about the direction a relationship may be taking you. Showing the inverted Empress energy, you might also find yourself not playing well with others due to a tunnel vision approach to having your needs met on your terms.
Career, Love, Money, Health, Spirituality
In the Career arena, it illustrates that work is usually going very well for you right now and if they are not at the moment, they will. Possibly not the perfect outcome The Empress would expect but significantly better.
Co-workers or bosses will take notice of your ideas, your passions and show respect to your way of doing things. Let your inner voice guide you and that the rest will follow. Use your creativity to keep the left brain mundane work activities working for you.
Where The Empress stands on Love coming in your life usually means it is a very potent time for new love. You may find that men and women alike are suddenly finding you far more attractive (both in terms of friendship and romance) and you will want to be careful with how you use this power. Don’t underestimate the power of The Empress when she turns on the charm. If you are single and looking, then this is a time when true love could very well be on the way. Even if you are not single, that intense true love may seek you out anyway.
When The Empress Tarot card shows up in your Money sector, it is an excellent time to make investments, buy a new car or home, so follow your instincts about them. Money should open up and flow well with possible windfalls or raises showing up. To balance financial karma, be sure to keep the flow going by giving back to a person or a cause that is important to you. Share your abundance!
Having The Empress appear in overall Health, she sometimes represents fruitful bearing. If you’re trying to get pregnant, then this is an excellent sign this may be forthcoming. If you’re not ready for that and pregnancy is a possibility for you, then you want to be VERY careful.
Little souls have a way of making their way into your life, ready or not, if you take a nonchalant attitude towards it. If you’re having health issues of any kind, think about approaching them in a more intuitive manner and consider adding some sort of naturopathic or homeopathic method to your health regime.
The Empress is a strong indicator that Spirituality is unfolding in your life at the moment. Your intuition may be trying to send you a message during this time. Quiet time is of the utmost importance in order to listen to your inner guidance. Having alone time needs to be a priority. Listen to any messages or warning bells that seem to come to you through your inner voice, guiding you with higher wisdom to help you either make a decision or act upon something that needs to be addressed.
Susan Z’s Verdict
I love this tarot card because of the feminine message of intuitive and abundant power. I always look at The Empress as the class act of the tarot deck. Using her feminine wiles and intuitive skills to bring about abundance and more of the good things we desire in life. All we have to do is embrace her attitude of “I am all that!”
