The 3rd major arcana in the Tarot, the Empress is in a sitting position, referring to the ideas of balance and stability that she represents. She rests on a flesh-colored throne, as if she were in perfect harmony with the world of matter over which she reigns. Her proud gaze is turned to the left, towards her husband The Emperor, who she respects and rarely seeks to contradict, one of the main characteristics of the Empress. Her great power does not lie in her ability to impose her will, but rather in her ability to communicate, to suggest and to analyze, making her the very symbol of mediation. The direction of her gaze also suggests a certain attachment to tradition, which this arcana recognizes is very important.
The hair of the Empress - long, white and loose - testifies to her great intelligence, but also to the purity of her intentions and the clarity of her ideas. As is customary for a person of high rank, she is wearing a crown, this one is yellow and red, two colors that symbolize respectively radiance and power. Unlike The High Priestess, whose action unfolds more in the spiritual universe, the authority of the Empress is temporal in nature. And the scepter adorned with a globe that she holds firmly in her left hand is there to remind you of that.
Man prides himself on the subtle analysis of his intelligence, but woman possesses a tool that is less logical and more acute for analyzing the future: intuition.
In the short term, the Empress is an extremely positive card from the Tarot, which pushes you to make concrete use of your strengths and to act in the concrete world. Filled with this positive energy, you will be more able than usual to seize the small opportunities that are offered to you. Why not accept that new project, for example, talk to your loved ones about the things you don't agree with, or begin spending time on a cause that is close to your heart?
In the long term, this arcana is very definitely about action. To achieve your goals, however, it will be necessary to learn to master this positive energy, this vital spark that drives you to create and build. By taking a step back and communicating in a calm and thoughtful way, you'll put the cards on your side!
