I have started a series of posts relating to the tarot initially as reference to my fantasy paranormal series. Particularly in the second book, ‘Black Widow Curse & The Coven’ as a modern-day twist on the usage of the cards by witches and how they relate to the protagonist, Meridian and her past as well as her future. This presents the ideology behind the fate of humans in terms of finding her twin soul in the Universe and the implications as such without success in doing so.
In this post I will talk about The Empress.
Today's post is about the tarot card, the Empress. So what is the meaning when the Empress card appears? In astrology, The Empress card is ruled by air sign, Libra which represents the planet, Venus and the seventh house. The symbol of Venus is placed near the bottom left on the card. This card represents beauty, luxury, love, balance, and judgments. The seventh house is a partnership house and most often associated with legality, marriage, partnerships, and contracts. Depending on what type of reading is conducted, will deliver a deeper meaning to this card. This card is usually a positive aspect and may represent conception. You may not have a little one on the way but you may have a new concept in your life at work or in your life philosophy. The Empress wants you to take a look at what you have and realize this is a positive time for you. From the author's perspective, I would say this is a wonderful card in the tarot deck. However, the seventh house represents balance and many Libra's struggle with decisions. Careful, too, this may represent a choice. If for some reason, there are not many positive aspects, then it may represent a negative female influence. Again, it depends are what type of reading is used.
In the recent book, the protaganist is plagued with a very important decision- one that could save her and possibly someone she has fallen for. She remains in limbo about the situation through out the story, and in the end...well you will have to read it to find out!
Her ambiguity results in a negative situation that readers will get to find out about in my upcoming release, Meridian Chronicles: Fairy Nymphs & The Demon Court.
Find out who makes the decision and why- get ready for a twisted ending....
Currently you can find 'Black Widow Curse & The Coven on Netgalley
