The Empress Card

The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely.

The Empress Card

The Empress Card

The Empress is widely known as the mother of the deck, the nurturer, the life-bearer, mother nature and the sacred well of fertility and creativity to mention just a few popular interpretations. 

Traditionally, the Empress is linked with the Roman goddess Venus, the goddess of love, and it is love that our message will focus upon today.  

I’ve said it time and time again, love is the glue that binds this magnificent universe together. You and the universe are not separate, as the great American cosmologist Carl Sagan said: “We are the Universe contemplating itself.” No one is an observer, for you, me and everything else is part of this great mystery and creation, there are no bystanders. Your presence is just as valid and important as anyone else, to think differently would be missing the point.

There is a movement and flow to love, it passes through us in the most mystical way, it comes from a deep place, has an enchanting fragrance, and can move and challenge us in the most profound and unexpected ways. We can all recognise its touch, the feelings we get when we first catch sight of our lover, our family, friends, pets etc. But today’s message is not about the love we feel for others, but the need to remind ourselves, that there are no spectators of the universe, but we are the universe, and the universe is love.

For if we truly understand the meaning and mystery of love, then we also must be part of this sacred experience too and join the great goddess Venus as she bathes in the floral waters of love. Make a renewed effort to fully accept and embrace yourself as a whole today. Treat yourself, nourish and nurture yourself. For when we fully reach that sacred place of self-acceptance and love, we truly understand the essence and meaning of love.
