Daily Tarot: The Empress

“There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.”  G. K. Chesterton

This could be a day where dealing with pregnancy or maternal figures, women of influence and power, the “ideal” woman, or females that play an important role in your life could feature prominently. Secondarily to that will be a focus on something that provides pleasure, happiness, and well-being. This may take the form of creative expression or the investment of energy into a project or business.  Alternatively, the emphasis could be on indulging the senses through food, sex, luxuries or beautifying self or the environment. Whatever the circumstance, the intent is to plant seeds that will yield something of value that also feels good. The appearance of the Empress says that luck and opportunity have arrived. You can make the most of your circumstances by applying your talents in practical ways. Using communication effectively can give you the advantage to solidify your current connections or form new and helpful alliances. Improving a situation may also depend on your willingness to help others.

Anytime the feel-good factor is present there is always the risk of excess, extremes, extravagance or self-indulgence. You may be tempted to rest on your laurels with the expectation that benefits will arrive on a silver platter.  You could be going too far in some area of your life and swinging from either end of the pendulum–too much or too little. Take note of the gold chains in the image on the card. The woman chose to wear them as a symbolic political statement after being captured. What are you chaining yourself to? If you lack faith in your talents or your ability to complete an objective, you may allow others to exploit you. If you’re not seeing the progress you’d like, perhaps it’s time to reorient. Stepping away from a situation to de-stress can do wonders for your outlook. A more effective strategy may be to go for the small gain that will bring in big rewards later.
