I can see the Empress, and the Queen of Pentacles and maybe even the Page of Pentacles representing Pregnancy. I can even possibly see the Sun as being a part of Pregnancy. Even the 7 of Cups with its fulfillment of dreams as a possibility if the question is about pregnancy. But, outside of that Im having a hard time seeing how you are interpreting all of those cards as having anything to do with the Pregnancy.
Let me caution everyone new to the tarot about one of the pitfalls You can get yourself into when you start looking at the tarot cards at to broad an angle. You can make them say what ever it is you want to hear simply by taking something as simple as the Young Man tending to his Garden in the 7 of pentacles as representing something so broad as Pregnancy. First of all a Man can “tend the fields” in order to secure himself a productive and prosperous future but, its a pretty good bet that He wont be having a baby anytime soon.
Even the Empress with her obvious pregnant state isnt going to be telling you about the possibility of a baby unless you have been asked about pregnancy. Its about the birthing process that is life in general. Weather your righting a book, building a computer program, or making a hamburger at a fast food restaurant where you work, The Empress is about the effort that goes into giving birth to all that we do not just about children. Dont try to force a card to mean something it might not mean. Apply every card to the question at hand, always follow the story board that the tarot lays out before you and never try to force it to say something it may or may not say. If you do all you will end up doing is convincing yourself or the person your reading for that you dont know what your doing when you are proven to be wrong.
I have been at this a very long time. I am seldom wrong. I do make mistakes sometimes, because you have to fill in the details the cards and the client don’t give you and sometimes your assumptions can be wrong. But, truth is, I am as accurate as I am because I tell people what the story in front of me tells me about the question at hand. In all of my readings I have only predicted pregnancy once and that was for a mother wanting to understand what was wrong with her teenage daughter. What I managed to find out was that she was going to have a baby and didn’t know how to tell mom. But, I let the story in the cards, moms concerns and the girls behavior tell me that. The only card that hinted at the pregnancy was the Empress. If You apply to many varying meanings to the cards you end up with a mess that doesn’t help anyone. It only says what you want to hear.
