III The Empress
Whatever the Priestess reveals to us, gets us wondering, and wandering. With focus and intuition, we get feeling around and we run into what Jan Wouhuysen called “a tasty bit of alright” (Tarot Therapy 1979) our first exposure to the creative spark. We were itching to get going, and now we are nourished, but the Empress works like a good cup of coffee - you are gonna get going now, and the fool in you may not let you focus.
This lady rules you in ways you have no say. She is the wild universe. Mama Earth. The twelve stars in her antlered crown reference the pre-nasa zodiac that got the ancients going. This was her dominion over the seasons. Ever fight winter? Winter wins so you better do things in step with her dance, not yours. The flowers at every chakra point (with a gem (flower) at the third eye) is her attention her whole body. WOMEN LISTEN TO A LOT OF STUFF, DUDES, TRY IT SOME TIME. All that gut feeling the High Priestess just taught us gets a language after we meet this gal. She may teach us our yoga or tell us how to eat better because she is not sitting around the palace waiting on servants to feed her, she met us in the woods looking for fresh food and water. TRIGGER WARNING - MORE ASTROLOGY: Her shield bears the symbol of Taurus as well as Venus, love and prosperity are this woman’s calling card. Her blue hair and the waterfall both represent the water that nourishes all life.
III is the number of the Empress. This fertile number is the product of the previous numbers and will give you enough legs for an easel or a tripod for your creative endeavors.
