Yes; the Empress is Pregnant.

So it makes sense why so many readers interpret her appearance to mean that an actual pregnancy is in the future.

Though what many readers haven't yet heard the Empress whisper to them, is that pregnancy is often a metaphor.

It can mean that you might soon be pregnant with things like:

  • Creativity
  • Business ideas
  • Enlightenment
  • Solutions
This is one of my favorite decks, especially because of the Empress card, which is depicted as a grandmotherly sheep in the boat most often seen in the 6 of Swords.

The Empress card shares with us the wisdom of having patience and learning to alchemize any discomfort and shadows that come up while our manifestations gestate and get ready to materialize into the world.

This is often missed by most readers, who focus more on what the Empress has already manifested around herself.

Which isn't a wrong or bad focus.

That interpretation in and of itself, shows that when we are waiting for something we deeply desire to manifest, the best energy to be in is gratitude - which helps us remain in what Abraham Hicks refers to as receptive mode, where we're best able to allow in the cooperative components needed for our manifestations to come into our reality.

When the Empress card pops up for you, it's often a reminder that if you're feeling anxious about something you want that's not already literally or metaphorically in your hands, it's time to get back into receptive mode by focusing on all we already have.

This is actually an oracle card and not a tarot card, and while I don't always associate the third card in a deck with the Empress in tarot decks, I do with this one for obvious reasons.

The Empress does have a counterpart - The Emperor; though if you'll notice in most all versions of the Empress card, she sits alone.

She sits alone and she looks very happy, in her own little world, with the world flowing and growing and fruiting for her.

She's often open in her body language, showing she's completely comfortable with herself and being alone in her surroundings.

Other cards that come up in your tarot spread when you draw the Empress card, can give you greater clarity as to her messages for you when you draw her, though on her own she always reminds us that we are more then enough on our own and that it's important to focus on self at least as often as we focus on the outer worlds.
