The Empress's crown

Sorry, this maybe a bit of a newbish question but I have been wondering about this for a while. The empress has a crown of 12 stars, what do these stars represent (I'm sure there are a plethora of meanings behind them)? The best thing I could come up with was the signs of the zodiac, but I'm not sure. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I don't have an answer to that one other than the zodiac which sounds likely to me too, but you might want to hit the historians down in Tarot History with that question. I doubt if any of them come up here to this part of the forum very often. But if anyone would know, they would.

The signs of the zodiac is right. I learnt this from my Tarot School

Well, I read somewhere that the stars on her crown were 6 pointed stars since they are 12 in number, represent her rule over the macrocosm.

Which deck are you using? I think that would make a difference in reading symbolism.
