Daily Tarot for September 6, 2013



Today’s card is the beautiful Empress. She is the Great Mother of the deck, and represents all that is bountiful and plenty. She is about the joy and pleasure in things of the Earth. Remember the four of swords yesterday? Did you notice the background of the card? Contrast it to the landscape in today’s card. The landscape is barren. When we feel like our landscape is barren and infertile, we need to take time out to meditate upon why that is so and make changes so that we are more grounded. Today with the Empress we take joy in nature and reconnect with that which feeds our souls so that we feel our lives are fertile again.

In the Mythic Tarot, we have the Goddess Demeter. She is the Good Mother who provides all humans need for existence. See her crown is made up of a city? Civilization is built upon her fertile goodness. Without it civilizations crumble to the ground, and this is exactly what happened when her daughter Persephone is stolen from her.  In the spirit of “as above so below” so it is also with our individual selves. Without the fertile goodness of the Earth and what she provides for us not only do our bodies crumble so do our souls.  People need not only bread and water but nurturing, love, and beauty as well. Take time this weekend to connect to Mother Nature, she not only fills your belly, but can fill your soul.

    Me too! And amazingly appropriate for me today! I’m going camping with my Goddess sisters!

  2. I’m a little surprised by this choice — I’d already pegged Demeter as the High Priestess. Can’t image who she’s going to be. Could she be mortal? Cassandra, perhaps?

  3. geekyg1rl says:

    The High Priestess is Persephone. The two sides of the Goddess. Demeter, the mother and all things of the earth and groundedness and birth and Persephone of the underworld, things that are secret, unknown, intuitive and mysterious.

  4. But Persephone is Demeter’s daughter. Isn’t that a little incestuous?
