A mother, or mother-like figure, either a symbol of one's own mother or a reminder of the ideal. However, this card can simply signal a time of fertility and abundance. As a ruler the Empress is wise, generous, and scrupulously fair, giving a lead by subtle hint and example rather than direct order. This card suggests action and worldly success for any imminent enterprise, whether it be marriage, work or art.
In her negative aspect the Empress can be vacillating, domineering, over-possessive, devious, vindictive, and jealous. This is the card of partnerships that have turned sour, either in family or work, and little good will come of it until the relationship is either brought back into balance, or ended.
