I am the Empress

14 Mar

I was surfing the net (when I should’ve been studying) and came across someone’s blog post about what her tarot card was. That led me to this site.

Now I’m not very familiar with the tarot and its uses.  Some have negative things to say about it, but I’ve also heard otherwise.  Anyway, since I don’t have anything against it really (it’s amoral, imho), curiosity got the better of me.  I took the short quiz and this is what my tarot card was supposed to be:

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, then 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 remember, in 2006, my friend invited two people to come by the office to have her fortune told. One was a numerologist and another was a tarot reader.  Since she didn’t want to go through the experience alone, she convinced me to go through it too.

I took whatever I was told with a grain of salt.  And the session didn’t reveal anything memorable, as far as I can remember.  But I do remember that in that reading, the center card which supposedly symbolizes me showed:  The Empress.  That was five years ago.  Should I be surprised with the consistency?
