  • Marriage, good partnership and parenting skills
  • Abundant and sensual femininity


The Empress tarot card shows a loving orangutan mother wearing a crown, lounging in her abundant garden with her baby on her shoulders.

The Empress stares boldly at you, welcoming you into her space. This is the card for fertility and abundance, and for the lusty Earth energy of sensual pleasures. This card often shows up in tarot readings about family and fertility matters. The Empress strongly indicates fertility, pregnancy, and very positive partnership and parenting skills.  The Empress is the “Earth Mother” who gives birth to all of your wishes and dreams. She represents all things motherly (from an ideal mother sense).  

However, when you see this card in a tarot reading it may indicate an actual woman in your life who plays the role of a maternal guide, domestic partner, or creative mentor.

In addition, this is a great card for initiating creative projects.
