The Empress

The Empress

previous      next


The Emperor and Empress of this deck are renditions of the same cards from Crowley's Book of Thoth.  Both are cards of power and self-sacrifice, differing only in their gender roles.

The Empress is the female archetypal ruler, the matriarch of the tarot deck.  She is surrounded by emblems and symbols of feminine authority and motherhood.
