The Empress represents the great mother - she nurtures and provides. She rules through love and embraces all of life. The Empress's sensuous nature loves beauty and art. She creates harmony between spirit and matter. She is the Queen of creation.

This gentle and elegant Japanese Empress walks hand in hand with her child in a flowering garden. On the Empress’s kimono are cranes which symbolize abundance through good fortune and longevity. The child has sunbursts on her kimono; she thrives under her mother’s care. The blossoms symbolize fertility and growth.

Meaning: If we open ourselves to what we need and give and receive love, abundance will flow.
