Touchstone Tarot~The Empress


This to me is the perfect Empress card.

It has everything…abundance, fruitfulness, bounty, harvest.
Even the rabbit looks plump!

I love how she seems to be trying to cover her pregnant bump with a posy of roses.

Her eyes are closed and she looks as if she’s saying a prayer-of thanksgiving maybe?
If she is one of Henry VIII unfortunate wives, she will be praying for a son!

This card is Lush :heart:


What a beautiful card.

I really don't like the sycthe (sp?) in the foreground though. (an intimation that although life renews, it must also be cut down to make way for new?)

The card does speak of abundance in the here and now though. And yes, it is lush!!
