Of course there may be some other explanation for what seem to be shards of broken glass exploding into the picture from the direction from which the dove flies. It is also possible that my eyes are seeing fanfiful things which are not really there...
All of a sudden I saw the bones of a skeleton's fore arm holding a white feather in the flash of light in the top right of the card. I can change my mind's eye back and forth from arm bones, to the dove. The bones feel like a VERY odd perspective. I don't really get it... Maybe I am losing my mind...

She does not feel like an Empress to me either. She feels like a High Priestess holding the Ankh of the Emperor.

Thoughts anyone?
The blue covering the throat, and signifying the throat chakra color feels very HP to me. And her matching dress is so watery, also like the HP... The dress is not typical "earthy" colors!

I am curious how this Empress card ends up reading for people?
