Hermetic Tarot - The Empress III

Going by the LWB:

Daughter of the Mighty Ones - Daleth/Door

The sign of Venus appears above the Empress and the sign of Libra (rules by Venus) at the top of the card.

The Empress is the Greek figure Aphrodite - Urania. The spiraling flames at her side represent her birth from water. The twelve stars overhead represent the zodiac that surrounds her. She holds a diamond scepter. The Empress has wings and is clothed in the sun. The Empress is the centre of the Emperor. She has a black eagle at her feet which is the counterpart of the alchemical eagle in the next card. Above the eagle, at the Empresses' knees is the inverted crescent moon.
