My Tarot Card

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, than sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

    I am the hermit, Kelly. That makes me a virgin. I think the test is really accurate and scientific. It really nailed me, for sure. Thank you for opening my eyes.

    I’m glad I could help you out there. I only posted my results because I like the picture. It’s really quite lovely. Perhaps I should have put it on the art blog. ;)

    That cannot possibly be your only award! Regardless, I’m delighted to see it up there – I’ll be away for a bit welcoming my new offspring into the world – hold down the blogosphere while I’m gone. Cheers!

    The only award for this site, I’m afraid. The art site got that meme-y one. Four times. Welcome to the new offspring! The blogosphere will probably still be here when you get back. Unless Max breaks the internet again.
