Card #9: The Empress
The Empress is deeply connected to feminine energy. This includes creativity, expression, and fertility. The appearance of this card in a reading calls you to connect to nature, beauty, and happiness. This card can also be associated with sensuality and fertility.
Because the Empress is connected with fertility, she may represent pregnancy and motherhood. However, the Empress may also represent the birth of ideas and opportunities.
When seen in reverse, the Empress indicates a loss of strength and willpower due to the fact that you may be too invested in other people affairs. On the other hand, you may be relying on others to take care of you.
