I got a lot out of comparing this card to the Emperor. Some thoughts..

While our Empress stands within the circle of the zodiac, the Emperor stands in front of it. He seems to be presiding more than synthesizing.

The Empress stands in a field of symbols, holding one herself, which she is contemplating. The Emperor stands in front of the zodiac as represented by pictures of it's ascribed animals/signs. He looks towards his miscrocosm of spinning planets on his sceptre as something he wields and owns.

I wondered if others had thoughts particularly about this signs/pictures difference in the two cards. Is he a more literal person?
