your tarot card is...


tarot priestess alchemicalYou are the Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love.

Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter Persephone was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

  1. Thanks! Yes, I’ve got a couple: regular tarot and Egyptian tarot, but they’re waaaaay back in the archives.

    I can totally see you as the Empress. It fits. And thank you for the lovely compliments. Not so much fun since my Internet started going out, but ah well, what can you do?

    I say wire tech services with explosives and hold everyone in the building hostage till they get the internet connection fixed. No jury will convict.

  4. You are The High Priestess
    Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

    That sounds way better then ” Nerd “…you can delete that pingback Max…sorry about that. I should have just done a regular link back here.


  5. max

    You left out “keeper of the arcane.” You are totally the high priestess.

    I like ping backs, they tell me where things are going and let me see what other people are doing with stuff.

  6. “Giver of Earthly gifts”… Abundantly;

  7. the devil…i was a bit perplexed by this, but i checked all five decks and it remained consistent.

    morning max

    That is a perfect card for a librarian, the giver of earthly knowledge.

    Crim, why am I not surprised?

  9. You are The Star
    Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
    The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised.

    I like that! My name means Morning Star, too, so it fits. Great quiz. I’m pop culture illiterate, so this one works better for me. Haha.

    BTW – I went to the alchemical wedding tarot page. Very cool. Might have to get me a deck.

  10. max

    Aren’t those decks amazing? They are the coolest tarot decks I have ever seen.

  11. max Because as goddessses go you are quite cynical?

    or maybe you’re just an astute judge of your readers…it’s not like it means i’m satan or anything..

  12. I’ll try to field that blistering creative comeback and zing you with one of my own

    let’s see


    Oh yeah?

  13. I did one for Insanity

    You are The Magician
    Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.

    Hmmm…nothing about the Dark Arts…I wonder-

  14. hmmmm two words, then one word…i ownder how much damage you can do with your next 1/2 word response

  15. max

    Oh Wolfie is totally the magician.

    Blitzer is going to get jealous if you do not do Blitzer.

    [Ignoring Criminy’s malcontention — it is not his fault he is Satan.]

  16. I am not satan, but i have considered allowing him to holf my coat. Or maybe i should find an empress…that would work

  17. Pingback: this week, the blog review, and sunday is for random thoughts #8 « because I said so again, why?

  18. You’re right Max…I did one for Blitzer- if Insanity sees this I am so screwed.

    You are The Emperor
    Stability, power, protection, realization. The Emperor is the great authority figure of the Tarot, so it represents fathers, father-figures and employers. There is a lot of aggression and violence too…

    NB call a Priest NOW.

  19. initiate

    I am the High Priestess. Fitting, though I think I’m more a combo of the High Priestess and The Empress. Can I be the High Empress? (I mean, I’m high a lot anyway–why not?)

    And I use this deck.

  20. max

    Sorry, Babe, I am the Empress and trying to go over my head there is just asking for a take down. [wink]

  21. well mine fits (at least by its roundness). I am the Wheel of Fortune.
    Max, smite the infidels and impostors…

  22. initiate

    You say “take down” like it’s all intimidating and not the least bit… um… Yeah.

    But I have enough for the whole class. You can be a High Empress too!

  23. lacy

    i am the star.
    i wear a moonstone around my neck all the time, so i was sort of surprised i wasn’t the moon. maybe i can find a starstone.
    hmm, stars are bright and white and sparkly.
    like diamonds.
