The Empress – Gilded Tarot Deck
I. Meaning of the Empress Gilded Tarot
The Empress Gilded Tarot appears immediately after the High Priestess as the inspiration continues by the act of expression. Surrounded by astrological symbols representing the possibilities of life, her red belt and brilliantly blonde hair speak of passion and fertility. Covering her passion is a blue cape that represents emotions. She wears a necklace that evokes the solar system near her heart. Her actions are introspective and encouraging, filled with emotion. She is the mother who gives birth to many lives. She holds in her hand a circle with a cross which is a symbol of femininity and a balance between opposing elements that cover both the ideal and the material form of the ideal. At the most basic level, she is both the model of love and the fruitfulness of life as a result of that love.
II. Message of the Empress Gilded Tarot
The Empress Gilded Tarot’s message is creativity and passion. You are in the role of nurturer and in the role of mother. Immerse yourself in the energy of Mother Earth and cherish that gift. Be aware, proud, and appreciative of your senses, the physical world, and your being.
You must be aware of the balance of health. Don’t let your emotions or actions be controlled or obsess, and don’t increase chaos by trying to do too much. A garden always needs care and love. However, too much or too little care can disturb the delicate balance of beauty.
III. Interpretation of the Empress Gilded Tarot in a spread
The Empress Gilded Tarot is an element of feminine power. The mysterious and unpredictable woman on the card symbolizes fertility and attraction. She wishes to touch the feminine side of each person and to listen to intuition, emotions and passion. She is also a sign of abundance. She brings about the message that people are more attracted to you than usual (in every way). Chances are someone will come to your doorstep, begging you to give them advice or simply give them a shoulder to lean on. This is very beneficial because you will be able to see yourself from the perspective of those around you – a wise and giving person. Share with others aspects that no one else has but you and always understand that your wisdom and care are very precious.
When the Empress Gilded Tarot appears in the upright position in your spread, it indicates a period of growth, abundance, and prosperity in your life. The card tells you that you need to connect with the feminine part of you. That could mean creating something beautiful or finding pleasure through music, art, or anything related to art. Overall, the Empress suggests that you are nurturing, caring, and supporting those around you, deepening your connection with others. This card may suggest that you are ready to be a mother. You are in your fertile period and conception can happen very easily.
In terms of work, the appearance of the Empress Gilded Tarot indicates a period of wealth and success in your life. This is the time to do things according to the plans and ideas you have in place and move on to the next stage of development. This card also talks about a time when you generate great productivity and refers to the time of harvesting what you have been patient and diligent about.
In terms of love, this card implies a happy time in your life with lots of communication and self-satisfaction. Family ties are strong, love is overflowing all around, and there seems to be a lot of activity going on in your house. Your committed relationship will become deeper and more meaningful when the Empress appears. If you are single, believe that true love is all around.
In terms of health, if you are planning on having a baby, the Empress Gilded Tarot intimates that this is the right time to conceive. On the other hand, if you are not ready to do so, the arrival of The Empress tells that you should be more careful and take precautions.
In terms of finance, this card is all about prosperity and completeness in the financial sector. This is a great time to invest because it will definitely bring you more income. This is also the time to reap the fruits of previous projects. You should spend them wisely and don’t forget to accumulate savings!
In terms of spirituality, your intuition is most likely trying to send you a message. It is important to listen carefully now. If that requires you to spend time alone, even though someone still needs your presence, being apart for a while is properly a higher priority. Pay attention to any messages or warnings that may come to you through your inner voice.
When in reverse, the Empress Gilded Tarot means that you are experiencing difficulties in some area of your life. The project seems to be stalled. Accordingly, its result does not appear to be positive. Perhaps you are impatient, trying to push too quickly, or have started the project when everything was not ready. This is not the time to act. If things are not going well, you should take the time to investigate what the problem is. Are you forcing things the way they should not? Or is this really what you want? Regarding love, the reversed Empress implies a lack of care, harmony, and conflict arise in the family. This reversed card also signifies miscarriage and inability to reproduce. Depending on the cards surrounding the Empress, this can mean either good or bad.
Besides, the Empress Gilded Tarot in reverse shows that you are focusing too much energy on the masculine part of you. Instead, you should pay attention to the inner feminine part. Everyone has both of these energies within them. Maybe you are misrepresenting yourself that you are not attractive and lovable. If you are seeing this, give yourself some time to contemplate and check back. You always have something to offer others, so believe in yourself for a bit. The reversed Empress also suggests that you should be more in touch with your inner happiness. Let’s reflect and meditate more.
In terms of work, your work is being respected and appreciated, but you may not realize it. You should pay attention to know that other people believe in you. In addition, you also need to believe in yourself. Accept what you deserve.
In terms of love, there are many people chasing you. If you are in a serious relationship, the card reminds you to pay special attention to your intuition. Again, the message of the Empress Gilded Tarot is to trust your instincts and follow your heart. If not, there will be times when you will regret it.
In terms of finance, sometimes you don’t need to know the details of how things are going. Instead, you just need to keep the faith that they will happen. The Empress Gilded Tarot in reverse appears as one of such times. You should pay attention to your sense of prosperity. Believe that the universe will have a way to satisfy your desires. This universe is a bountiful and abundant resource and your job is just to do what you need to do. The excessive calculation only gives you a glimpse of a part of the picture of reality.
In terms of health, your subconscious is trying to tell you something that you have not heard yet. Just be patient and listen. Sometimes health-related information comes to you in a very strange way, as if your neighbor may suddenly tell you about someone who is “allergic to ketchup but really likes it”. Pay attention to suggestions from both the outside and the inside to take better care of your health.
In terms of spirituality, the women around you will support you in this matter a lot. Pay special attention to what they say and think about spiritual matters. You can try reading books by female authors if you are looking for motivation. Female power will benefit you, no matter what gender you are.
