The Empress Tarot card: woodblock print of a seated woman with dense foliage around and inside her has her hands resting on her heart and her abdomen
The Empress

The Empress and the next card, the Emperor, are a pair, both expressing attitudes and relationships toward the natural world. The Empress personifies the creative power of the feminine principle — fertility, abundance, beauty, sensuality, love, motherhood, and new life.
