EXPERIENCING the Tarot EMPRESS
Breathing life. Creating love.
Everything for the good of all creation.
Even when they can’t see the how and the why of it all.
The Cosmic Empress strolls gracefully in her garden of ideas. Golden seeds everywhere, she’s the epitome of fertility and feminine creation. Whistling the tones of symmetry and sacred geometry, she spirals her voice into beautiful new patterns and hums a new time-line into being. Seeds spark, plants begin to shoot, and from somewhere across the distance she hears the singing voices of children who are dancing their futures to life. Smiling, she pulls her hood back and showers their worlds with new energy and nurturing, motherly care. And all the Planets, worlds, lives and loves spiral out, auspiciously, from her star seed core. She creates from her most readily available resource of love, and she sends you a warm nod and a wink while reminding you that you can also access this ancient creator energy. As her children, we are made of this same fairy dust and we are shaped from the elements that originated from deep within her big-bang heart. We can use her musings to create life from deep within our bellies, or to bring our most exquisite visions into being. Her golden seeds are, after all, everywhere you look. Or wait… did you think those were lemons? ‘Hmmm,’ she muses, ‘What a wonderfully perfect day for some lemonade.
Go for a stroll with this Empress in her garden. Taste the tastes and smell the smells. Tell her your dreams, and when she is ready, she will share something with you from deep inside of her sunshine core.
“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” – Maya Angelou
• Imagine you found the ancient cloak of the Empress, unexpectedly. Not only does it allow you to create anything you can imagine, it also nurtures sensuality, fertility and earth pleasure. What does it look like? What would you create beneath its layers? Draw it. Write about it. What is your Empress vision for the Universe? For your life?
• Spend some time ‘earthing’ (or grounding) outside. Put your bare feet on the grass and feel the earth’s healing frequencies come up through the soles of your feet. This connection to Mother Earth will bring a beautiful sense of well-being.
