The Empress by Anita Inverarity
The Empress represents Motherhood and fertility, represented by the roses on her skirt and the soft invite of her petticoats. The crescent moon of her belt buckle represents, the waxing and waning of the moon and its links to fertility (the cycle of life).The cats are the children in this piece, in need of love, care and attention, but ultimately their own spirits and independant beings. The Empress has physical and spirtitual security, you can tell by her confident gaze she is mature and knowing. Loving and generous, she wears her heart on her sleeve and has one foot firmly in earthy matters and her spirit flying with Angels

Companion Piece….
The Emperor

    Whats the saying: Don’t wear your heart (or hearts) on your sleeve’ :o)
    Love the little mousey in the corner holding your ‘name tag’. Love the moggies with thier Mona Lisa expressions. Love her Leia hair-do, love the million and one filowers filling the scene.
    Her belt buckle looks ‘remarkably like a half moon’ – if I am not mistaken :o)
    Another unique piece of art, Anita :o))))))))))

  • Thank you so much Paul, wonderful comments and observations as always. I did not notice the crescent moon belt buckle myself, I love that you have interpreted it as that, because it fits soooooo well with the meaning of this particular Tarot card. If you dont mind I’m going to add that to my description and I will give credit to you for that too.
    Blessings Anita xoxox
