A Season of Creativity
Often when we think about the Empress card, we think of things pertaining to the springtime and fertility. The Empress can inspire fertility year round, though, through creativity. She is a very potent symbol of abundance and plenty.
When I'm stuck for inspiration, I call upon Empress energy. This season, she's been working with me to help me very creatively make seasonal gifts for friends and family. That's the thing I've found with Empress energy; it works best when the creativity is infused with love.
Are you in need of a bit of inspiration, a bit of creative energy or some new ideas? Call upon the Empress to assist you in your endeavors. There are many ways that this can be done. If you keep an altar or a place of meditation, put an image of the Empress from a favorite Tarot deck there, where you can see it often and remember to focus on the task in hand. Perhaps you would prefer to put the image as a wallpaper to a computer monitor, tablet, or smartphone. Small tiles can be worn as jewelry, or a photo of the card carried in a wallet or purse.
The main thing when working with this energy is to have a goal, but let the path to that goal meander a bit. I've found that some of my most creative ideas have developed when I thought I was going to be making something else! For me, this seems to apply to all aspects of creativity, too; pottery, knitting, writing, whatever.
This season, try inviting the archetypal Empress to assist you with your creative projects, whatever they may be. After all, as a symbol of caring and nurturing, her energy can go a long way into turning a pursuit into a pleasure, and a token into a treasure, yes? Here's hoping everyone has a festive holiday season, however they choose to celebrate.
