The Fool, after taking his advice from the High Priestess, had decided what will be the shape of his future and had courageously decided to move forward. However, he is rather impatient and not very willingly to take the necessary steps to make his future into a reality that he wanted. This is when he chanced upon the Empress. The Empress had golden hair, like wheat and had a crown of stars. She wore a white grown which is decorated with pomegranates. She looked serene and at ease and rested on her throne which was surrounded by an abundance of grain. There was also a lush garden.
The Fool related his story to the Empress who advised him that his future will take time to build, just like a newly planted grain which requires fertile soil and patience in order to grow into a plant. The Fool took the advice and understand that his future will take some time to be built. He thanked the Empress and continued with his journey.
The Empress is a creator and may represent a creation of life, romance or businesses. The Magician is an individual who provides the spark of idea, while the High Priestess is one who “solidify” the idea. However, it is the Empress who gestates and nurtures the idea. The Empress provides the Earthly gifts yet when her daughter, Persephone was kinapped, she kept the Earth barren until her child was returned to her.
Generally, The Empress is an easy card to interpret and read. She’s generally read as an individual who is patient and generous. However, she also worries about issues such as children. This individual may be someone close to the querent, such as the querent’s mum.
Basically, this card is read like this: if the Empress represents the querent, the querent has to note that in order for his or her romance to blossom or for his or her career to take flight, the querent has to pay attention and baby the romance or the career. However, patience is also required and know that time is required for the romance or the career to really mature. This is the advice provided by reading this tarot card.
