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.

The Hebrew word on this card reads: ANIEL (the angel attributed to Venus).
