The Empress

Description

The Empress tarot card speaks about beauty, abundance, motherhood, and fertility. Illustrated above, she is emitting light, which is radiating from her belly (where the child grows), and forming the center of the galaxy revolving around her. Her hair is a cascading waterfall and with these two essential elements she provides for all life. Like all tarot cards, the Empress has a reverse meaning. The black hole sucking in part of her galaxy is a symbol for the Empress's reversed meaning, infertility.
