The Empress III

The Empress III Lover is a grounded, sensual and creative personality and lives in the now; experiencing her life and the world around her through heightened physical appetites, finely-tuned senses and sensuality, emotional warmth and generosity. The Empress III is fully aware of and therefore completely appreciates (perhaps more than any other Major Archetype), the marvellous gifts that our beautiful, abundant Earth has to offer and the need to express our own creativity, every day and in every way.
The Empress III Lover’s sensual and creative self-awareness enhances the pleasure she receives through her physical environment. The Empress III personality innately marvels at the joy that can be had in a gentle breeze or the soft sunshine of a spring day; in the embrace of a new-born baby or a beloved family pet; in the fragrance of her garden and favourite blooms or in the delicious aromas arising from the preparation, cooking and sharing of scrumptious food and wine with family and friends; in the solitary sounds of bird at the dawn of a new day or musical wizardry of an accomplished orchestra; in the presence of a magnificent mountain or from street-artists drawing on a sidewalk pavement.
 Or His
The Empress III Lover understands that creativity is a process of inspiration; that it takes time, patience and dedication to create things of beauty and meaning. In expressive ventures – painting, writing, music, dance, theatre, child-rearing, gardening – she understands the underlying quality of creativity is that of unfolding. So too, in her relationships – friendships, parenting, family and partnering – is the gentle process of allowing things to grow and develop in a peaceful and natural way.
The Empress III Lover demonstrates principles of the feminine in everything she says and does. Responsive, tactile and affectionate she gives of herself freely; enveloping you in the warmth of her love. The Empress III Lover is not, however, a door-mat or martyr. Just as she will move mountains to help her loved-ones and friends to help themselves she is also wise, empowered and completely conscious of her own boundaries and abilities; exerting her independence, demonstrating her intelligence and letting her desires and instincts lead her meet her own needs.
My best to you.
Reading tarot for others (and occasionally myself) is exciting, inspiring and very gratifying.
