The Empress brings us Demeter: earth mother, ruler of nature and protector of the young and defenceless. Demeter’s realm governs the orderly cycles of life and nature and growing things, and she can be seen in matters relating to the gestation and birth of new life, and the rites of marriage.
This gives The Empress the earthier side of life – births and marriages could be indicated, but also the birth of creative endeavours or a creative partnership. Either way, there is the need for patience and to nurture things to fruition. 💐🌾
