The Empress - Ruled by Venus

Light Energy: Motherly Energy, Evolution, Nurturing 

Shadow Energy: Creative blocks, Codependency

Planetary Attributes: Love, Abundance, Money 

{FIRSTNAME}, when you plant a seed, you don’t dig it up every 5 seconds to see if it’s sprouted any roots. 

The Empress card brings forth the nurturing energy in you -- you have the ability to sow any seeds you want in this lifetime, but it will take time to do so. 

Venus, the planet of love and abundance, rules this card so wealth and success is not really a question here. 

The challenge is for you to become more attentive to your goals and meet them with love, grace, and patience. 

This brings forth very fertile energy. Think about it -- a baby is developing in the womb for 9 months! 

Remind yourself that everything that’s worth creating in this world takes time.

You’ll be blessed if you’re able to practice gratitude and unconditional love for the creative process. 

If you find yourself becoming impatient, it can be helpful to remind yourself of everything you’ve been through up until this point. Remember, you’re on a spiritual journey and the Universe teaches you lessons in phases. 

Looking back on the card that comes right before The Empress card (which happens to be The High Priestess), can indicate what lesson you need to integrate to stay present on the right path in this moment in your life. 

The High Priestess brings forth the energy of trusting yourself and using your intuition as a strong tool for discernment. So, {FIRSTNAME}, you’ve already trusted your gut and made the decision to create right now -- don’t self sabotage your creative fertile energy by becoming too obsessive over it. 

If you’re able to find a healthy way to nurture your new budding creative idea, the future looks really bright as The Emperor follows The Empress card. This will bring forth the organized, logical energy to manage your manifestation once it comes to life. 

Stay true to your path, {FIRSTNAME}. There are so many things to look forward to!
