The Empress as Your Boss

Warm, encouraging and generous. Vain, power-hungry and stubborn. Bosses come in all moods and molds, and figuring out what makes your boss tick isn't always easy. However, tarot can come in handy as you draw on the archetypes of one of the 22 major arcana cards to help you determine the nature and personality of the person who signs your paycheck.

For example, if the Empress is your boss, she'll have a few determining characteristics that make her easy to identify. Let's take a closer look ...

At her best -- the Empress boss is almost always female, though "she" can also be a deeply woman-identified man -- this nurturing boss oozes compassion and support. She acts as your mentor, encouraging your skills and gifts while looking for opportunities to help you shine.

Like a mother in the workplace, this employer wants only the best for you. One of the most positive of the tarot boss archetypes, the Empress is the essence of divine feminine energy. She symbolizes the abundance of nature, overflowing with gifts and treasures to share with others. Her creativity is seemingly endless, and she shines in fields that involve art, fashion, food and education. When your Empress boss is happy, the whole world seems happy, as the force of her personality can affect everyone around her.

On the flipside, imagine your mother when she becomes irritated. Like a raging tornado, the Empress in a bad mood is force of nature. Vengeful, jealous and destructive, she has no qualms about leveling anything that stands in her way. Usually, the Empress only gets out of whack when she feels like she's been taken for granted, or that her offerings aren't properly appreciated.

Like the earth itself, the Empress needs a little care, recognition and gentle tending in order to perform at her best. This boss may be particularly vulnerable to her monthly cycle or the effects of other female hormonal changes such as pregnancy and menopause, so learn how to batten down the hatches when you feel an estrogen storm coming on! Offers of comfort food and a shoulder to cry on will also go a long way in soothing the savage feminine beast that lurks in the heart of the Empress.

Don't know much more than the fact that your boss isn't an Empress? Take a look at the other 21 major arcana cards of the tarot and see if you can identify matching characteristics between your boss and one of these important cards. If yours is ambitious, structured and serious, you've likely got an Emperor boss on your hands. Immature and careless -- but fun? Your boss is probably a Fool!

Each of the major arcana cards holds within it qualities that can help you navigate your employer's moods and behavior. As you acquaint yourself with the meanings of these 22 cards, let the images speak to you and tell you more about the people you work with and for.

The tarot cards hold the keys to the mysteries of the world around you, and their uses are endless in possibility. Grab a deck and study up!
