The Empress card in the tarot symbolizes lush, sensual and abundant feminine energy. When this card appears in a reading, it’s a sign that something good is coming your way. But you don’t have to wait for this card to show up in a reading to reap the rewards of the Empress. It’s also possible to cultivate her positive energy on a regular basis, ensuring that you experience a steady diet of rich Empress vibes. When you live by the principles of the Empress card, you never know what you will manifest in your life, but the chances are good that it will be something pleasurable!
Empress Tip #1: Spend time in nature.
The Empress is the Queen of nature and as such, she is fed and nourished by spending time in natural environments. You can nurture your own inner Empress by making sure you spend plenty of time with green, living things.
Take action: Plant a garden or buy potted plants, spend a day at the park or plan a camping trip.
Empress Tip #2: Practice gratitude and generosity.
The Empress knows she has much to be thankful for and also much to share. By acknowledging her riches, she makes room for more to come her way. You can emulate the Empress by focusing on what you are grateful for in your life and giving what you can to others.
Take action: Keep an ongoing gratitude list. Give away things you no longer need to someone who you think might appreciate them.
Empress Tip #3: Know your realm.
The Empress is the ruler of a finite realm or territory. She knows exactly what parts of her kingdom are her responsibility and which belong to another ruler. You can learn from her by identifying the areas of your life that you consider your own realm. These would be people, places and projects that you have a sense of connection and commitment to. Everything outside of your realm should be lower on your priority list and thus take less of your time. Once you know what’s yours and what’s not, it will be easier to establish boundaries and say no when you need to.
Take action: Write down the details of your realm. What do you need to pay more attention to, and what is outside of your realm that you can leave alone for now?
Empress Tip #4: Stay connected.
The Empress is intimately connected with life force energy and she thrives around people and situations that are filled with love. You can recharge your battery and get energized by remembering to connect with whatever it is that makes you happy.
Take action: Make the time to dance, laugh, exercise, eat right or whatever it is that helps you to stay connected to the life force.
