Tarot Card of the Week: The Empress

Medieval Enchantment

Tarot Card of the Week: May 9, 2016 – May 15, 2016

The Empress

It’s time to take things easy, sit back and not react to what is going on around you. Why should you when you are feeling so calm and emotionally relaxed?

This is the Empress card, from Nigel Jackson’s beautiful Medieval Enchantment Tarot. It represents feminine strength and power, regardless of gender.

There is a grand earth trine involving Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Pluto in play this week, which should be giving you a sense of peace and also the capacity to clear up any emotional problems you have been experiencing or trying to get to the bottom of.

With the planets of communications (Mercury), love (Venus), personal expansion (Jupiter) and depth (Pluto) all lining up in unison, not much can go wrong for you and it is a great chance to become clear in your own mind where you want to go next.

Venus and Mercury are especially prominent as they join together on the degree of last week’s New Moon. So if there is something you want to express to a loved one, this is the time to do it.

As all this happens in the calm, earthy and sensuous sign of Taurus, remember to take your time in composing your thoughts and to speak from the heart. 

It is as if you are sitting back and enjoying the way this week is panning out for you. You may have things to do but there is no urgency in accomplishing them especially if they are related to emotions or relationships.

In fact, any relationships around you just now will be feeling the beneficial effects of the grand trine so don’t go rocking any boats by trying to cause an argument or open something up for discussion if you know for a fact it will lead to choppy waters and not a calm sea.

You are striving for calmness this week so you are ready to face “come what may” another time. This is the time to rearrange your thoughts and emotions so they are in tune with you and what you want from a situation.

Look at the Empress in this card and notice her foot peeking out from under her gown. When you are ready to act and have consolidated your thoughts in line with your inner calmness you will simply get up and put your best foot forward and all will fall into place. Much like the pretty pink sky that you’re basking under now.
