THE EMPRESS is the third trump or Major Arcana card in traditional Tarot deck.
This is my third interpretation of a Tarot card that I have done, below are links to two others The Magician and The Death card. Thanks for looking.
The Empress is the fourth card in the tarot deck’s Major Arcana. The number associated with her is three, as at her core level she is the point at which the sequence of the tarot begins to deal with the relationship between the spirit, mind, and body. The Empress herself can be said to represent the last of these three – the body, as well as the world of the physical at large.
As a matter of fact, we can go one step further than saying that the Empress represents the physical world. In many ways she actually is this very world and all that makes it what it is. She is wealth, sensory pleasure, and prosperity in all their many forms as well. The world she lives in is our world exactly as it was meant to be – ideal, beautiful, and bountiful. As such, she is also said to be a representation of motherhood, nature and the creation of life. She is, quite simply, abundance in all its many forms.
