I Am the Empress

Anno had this fun "Which Tarot are You" quiz at her blog. I had to play along. I couldn't seem to upload the graphic they provided (a very cool cat Tarot deck), but here's one from Liz Greene's Mythic Tarot, which is one of my favorite decks.

The description said...

You are The Empress (which was kind of cool!)

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

(Yee ha!)

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love.

Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

(Interestingly enough, astrologically, my rising sign is Virgo, and Demeter rules that sign. I just found this sort of interesting!)

i'm pretty sure i don't want to know what tarot card i am. that will only confuse me more. in 1977 i had my astrological sign read by someone and i swear it sent me into a tizzy for years about who i am and what it is i should be being and doing. i might be older now ;) but i am still confused and this kind of thing may cause lasting brain damage at my age.
