Ask and Answer Tarot Meanings: The Empress

Learning and Community

M

iracles, it is now time to encounter the Empress in our Ask and Answer Tarot Meanings series, the companion to my e-course on Tarot, 20 Question Tarot.

Remember: In the Ask and Answer Tarot series I am going to give you 6 questions that each Tarot card inspires you, the reader, to ask either yourself or the person you are reading for and 2 questions that will help you get to know the card a little bit better.

 

The Empress

Card Number: III

Ruling planet: Virgo

Element: Earth

Season: Late Summer/Early Autumn

 

Questions for the Empress:

These two questions will help you get to know the Empress a little bit better:

1.) Notice the Empress’ scepter – a long staff with a sphere at its tip. How does she wield this tool and what does it help her accomplish? What is the Empress’ relationship to Sovereignty?

2.) What does the Empress prevent you from doing for other people?

 

Questions from the Upright Empress:

When the Empress card appears upright in a reading, these three questions will help you reveal its message.

1.) What seeds have you sown that are now ready to be harvested?

2.) What successes are you ready to celebrate?

3.) Where are you able to be especially generous and loving?

 

Questions from the Reversed Empress:

When the Empress card appears reverse in a reading, these three questions will help you navigate its advice.

1.) Where are you being too lazy or self-indulgent?

2.) Where are you being too selfish?

3.) What seeds have you sown that ended up not bearing fruit and how might you start over?
