3. The Empress

The Empress can be seen as the archetypal Mother, perpetually pregnant with creative life force.  Her energy of pure Universal Love brings the dualism of the Magician and High Priestess to fruition.  As our creative imagination, the Empress gives birth to possibilities out of seeming chaos and imagines the world into being, pushing us forth into the birth canal of authentic becoming.
Key words: Mother Nature/ Abundance/ Unconditional Love/ Creative feminine imagination/ Eros/ Creative imagining

The Empress               Nina Wolf

  Motes of dust
    drops of water
         flickers of flame
              circling    ever circling    ever tightening     until form Be Comes      
                                                                                                                            Time begins
The Empress, as we know HER, is in beauty.
Curatress, nurturer.      
Allowing all life to evolve
Accenting limitation, then   
                                                        the terrible
Has the next evolution begun?
The Queen of life has dominated my life, as she has yours.  I began my conscious connection with her at the onset of menses, at the age of 11.  Her consciousness has dominated my maturation as a human being, a tribal member, an artist.  She has informed and guided me on this long journey,
So may it be yours.”
