Herbal Tarot - III - Empress - Dong Quai

See the major arcana cards in Constellation 3.

Description: The Empress is seated on a rock. To one side of her is a crystal ball with the symbol for Venus, and in her left hand she is holding a wand that is topped with a crystal ball and a cross, further symbolizing Venus. Behind the Empress there is a forest, and a creek is running through the forest and ending in a lake. There is a large Angelica plant centered in front of the Empress, and it partially covers her pregnant belly.

Significant Details: The neckline of her gown reminds me of the symbol for Leo, thus connecting the Empress with the Dong Quai. The angelica is representing protection of the mother.

Keywords: Abundance; Fertility; Sensuality; Nurturing; Mother

Medicinal Uses: Historically used to ward off witches and evil spirits, and also used for preventing infections.

My Interpretation: This is a time of abundance for you. You may be searching for answers to your future, or fertilizing new ideas during this time.

Number Significance: The Empress is in Constellation 3 with the XII Suspended Person, XXI World, and the Three's. Creativity, Nurturance, Sacrifice, Surrender, Form, Relatedness, Fertility, Limitation, Imagination

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: The Empress sits on her rock waiting for us to ask for guidance. Will she tell us what we want to hear, or what we need to hear?
