The Empress: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
11-10-20 through 11-17-20
The Empress is this week’s Tarotcast card. We may experience strong urges to nurture and share this week. We find ourselves and others more open, receptive and compassionate. Enjoy your home, have a (virtual) party, serve comfort foods and indulge in rich desserts. Giving help and support especially to children and animals, meets with success.
On the Tree of Life the Empress card travels Path 14. It joins sephiroth or sphere 2, Chokmah (Wisdom) to sephiroth or sphere 3, Binah (Understanding). Its Hebrew letter is Daleth (which means “door”). A woman’s body is the door through which we all pass when we enter this life.
The Empress is the Planetary trump of Venus. She is woman in all her many forms. This card embodies all aspects of fertility in every sense of that word. Allow new ideas to take shape. Do some planting and gardening. Or, find seed money for investment or projects. You may even get news of pregnancy. The upcoming week brings these and other positive possibilities.
In real-time astrology, the Sun continues its transit of Water-sign Scorpio. Venus is currently transiting Air-sign Libra (one of the signs it rules). Venus is completely at home here and embodies many of the positive aspects of this week’s card.
Mercury enters Scorpio on November 10th. With Mercury direct, we’re regaining clarity. It’s easier to make decisions and process information.
Jupiter conjuncts Pluto (both in Earth-sign Capricorn) on November 12th. We get a turbo-charge from this transit. Because it can expand energy, we’ll do well to make sure the focus is positive and constructive. We may feel inspired to better ourselves and improve our circumstances. If we avoid greed and the lust for power this is a great time for achieving personal goals and dreams.
Another powerful aspect of this transit is the exploration of our deepest desires. If you find yourself feeling jealous or resentful, look deeper. You will discover things you may not know you wanted or haven’t admitted to yourself that you wanted.
Jupiter opens our minds to possibilities and moves us to pursue our passions.
On November 15th Mars stations direct in Fire-sign Aries (the sign it rules). We’re confident in our abilities again. We find it easier to assert ourselves and take action. Enthusiasm surges. Projects and plans move forward with ease.
“I dress as your daughter when the moon becomes round… You’ll be my mother when everything’s gone…”
On the same day, we have a New Moon in Scorpio pushing us out of our comfort zone. Look for new ways to heal. There’s no more ignoring the elephant in the room. Be prepared to make necessary changes and face issues head-on. New beginnings feel right – especially when it comes to our intimate relationships. A new approach can be exactly what’s needed.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of this card: over-indulgence in sensual pleasures. Misuse or abuse of alcohol, drugs, sex and even food. Wallowing in self-indulgence to the point of egotism or narcissism. Vanity, laziness and envy of others.
Let’s focus on the best energy of this card. Embrace the power of the feminine principle (no matter how we gender-identify). We can find comfort and strength inside our own skins, celebrate our bodies, and our Mother Earth.
Power colors: emerald green, sky blue, bright rose pink, and pale spring green.
Power stones: emeralds, opals, jade, sapphire and lapis lazuli. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to nurture others and take compassionate action. This provides a good balance to pampering ourselves.
Power metal: copper. Copper may have healing properties, this is a great week to see how it works for you.
Power fragrances: violet, wild rose, bergamot, hibiscus, magnolia, plumeria, rose, strawberry and vanilla. These enhance the balance of self-care and other-care. For a treat, take a candle-lit bath using pink candles and natural mineral salts. You’ll be channeling the positive energy of the Empress in a few relaxing minutes!
Power foods: foods prepared with apples, strawberries and vanilla. Teas brewed from rose hips or hibiscus. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
