Card of the Day - June 9, 2012
Today's Card of the Day from the Morgan Greer Tarot is yet another Major card, The Empress. The Empress represents the eternal mother. She is the goddess of fertility and creativity. She possesses interesting symbols in this card like the moon (intuition, pomegranate (fertility), lotus (purity) heart (love) shield (protection) cross (balance) and wheat (growth and fertility). She sits besides a waterfall, which is different from other decks, where she sits in a field. This reminds me of something I learnt in school : cities crop us where there is water. So where the Empress sits, is a fertile land because of the waterfall. There are also trees, plains and gardens in the background, all flourishing because of her nurturing qualities of a mother. Today, we need to be like her. Be loving, caring, nurturing. Someone out there could need our help, could be your husband or a friend - maybe just a shoulder to cry on or a motherly advice. We all have a mother within us (even if we are a man). She is the gardener, and is like the goddess of the Earth, Gaia.
