Even though the image in this card is upside down (reversed) the meaning still abides. Water flows from a stream dotted with beautiful lillies into a golden chalice held by a heavenly hand appearing out of the clouds in a blue sky. The flowing water encourages us to connect to our intuition, our feeling sensibilities and to align with our emotional core. The heart opens and we are connected. All of us. Together. The dove of peace flies upwards.
It’s raining manna from heaven as we see beautiful stalks of wheat grace the sky portion of this reversed card. The Empress reclines on her luxurious cushions in the midst of verdant forest and farmed landscape. She is the symbol of lush life–everything she touches turns to beautiful growth. Abundance, creativity, love of nature and all things beautiful are hers to offer. The message in this reversal is to nurture yourself this week. Give love and compassionate care to yourself because as you blossom under your self-loving care so will others.
