As the Mother Earth archetype, the Empress urges you to venture out into the world around you, to ground your energy and be in flow with the earth. “Be close to nature, study nature, be in nature for she will never ever fail you.” The perfect card, to start what will be a very powerful year. You are in a period of growth, in which all you have dreamed of is aligning. When the Empress appears in your readings, take a moment to reflect on the what you have created so far. She signifies a strong connection with the sensuality and elegance of femininity- it is time to take own your power.
