The Empress Tarot Personality

Every Tarot card has personality traits associated with it.  These can be helpful when looking at other people, but also for personal reflection.  Perhaps you want to know what your greatest strengths and challenges are? The cards can give great insight into the personality and help you develop strengths and face your weaknesses.

the Empress

The Empress is the matriarch of the Tarot and symbolizes fertility and abundance.  She represents those who are nurturing and compassionate by nature, sometimes so much so that they put everyone ahead of themselves when not properly aligned.

People with this card tend to base their sense of identity and self-worth on others and on their roles and so long as they properly balance this with self-care, it’s a wonderful thing.

Empress people are also very creative and expressive and must use that ability to thrive.  Sequestering the creative energies in this personality can be detrimental to spiritual and mental health.  Empress people thrive when they are using their creativity to solve problems and to provide comfort and sustenance to others.

Pregnancy in this card is not only symbolic of fertility in the physical sense, but of the creative life force that wants to manifest.  The Empress person must have freedom to express themselves and should strive to keep a sense of personal identity separate from other people.

Empress people are most often drawn to artistic fields, teaching and the healing professions.  They tend to be empathic and compassionate and others are drawn to their loving energy.

Sometimes Empress people love a project so much that they may attract people who are broken in an attempt to fix them.  People with this card need to be very discerning in personal friendships and romantic relationships to ensure they are drawing healthy people into their circle.  The best way for this to happen is to focus on self-love and acceptance first.

Tarot Personality Card The Empress

Every card has a distinct “personality” and those characteristics can be used to look a bit at the person you are reading for or about.  This is a great way to better understand others and even yourself!

For example, draw two cards: One for natural strengths and the other for challenges.   This can help you determine how to approach someone, or even give insight into why you feel, think and act as you do.  You can also choose one that you resonate with as a “significator” card for a reading for yourself or another person.

Learn more about strengths you have and how to develop them to their fullest potential. Tap into your challenges and better understand how to work with and around them to make life easier.

The Empress

the EmpressThe Empress represents maternal instinct, the nurturer who is compelled to care for others and to provide comfort. This person is often artistic or musical. Empress people are more geared to use the creative side of the brain and will often come up with unconventional solutions to challenges.  Empress people need to use their creativity and personal expression and will use it to inspire and encourage others.

Naturally empathic, sometimes to a fault, Empress people can sometimes end up mothering everyone around them at the expense of taking care of their own needs. Empress people value beauty, aesthetics and are naturally optimistic. They believe and live by a notion that love and kindness conquer all.  They see the beauty in everyday places, events, and people and are genuinely kind and compassionate beyond measure.

Empress people who embrace their need for creative expression live much more fulfilling lives than those who try to “conform” to other people’s standards.  Unfortunately, their need to please others often leads them away from their authentic nature and Empress people often feel conflicted and torn.

You will not meet a more generous and genuine nurturer than an Empress.  When properly balanced, this person is a true matriarch, a light and great comfort for those who depend on her.  She is creative, expressive and encourages others to see the beauty in all things – even themselves.

An empress who is not well-balanced will often fall into the trap of “people pleasing” to the point she loses her sense of self.  At that point, she may become depressed, stop caring for herself and even become too overbearing as her sense of identity is wrapped up in those around her.  Her roles take on more importance than finding herself.

The Priestess

major arcana the priestessThe Priestess represents a strong person (usually a woman), who has an ideal blend of logic and intuition. Her emotions run deep, but she is very self-aware and able to distinguish emotion from intuition. She is also keenly analytical and she can combine these skills in such a way that she is a natural leader.

Priestess people are often business owners, philanthropists, or women in leadership roles. They sometimes come across as aloof or more distant, but they are very compassionate and fair-minded. They don’t jump to conclusions and will distance themselves to “feel out” a situation before making a decision or taking action.

They know how to form proper boundaries with others and that makes them objective and insightful. High IQ and EQ combined.  This person has a commanding presence but is reasonable and well-grounded.

Priestess people rely heavily on their naturally strong intuition and they have an uncanny ability to see through hidden agendas etc. Because of this natural strength, people sometimes feel intimidated by this person.  You’ll find though, that despite their ability to see deep, hidden inner secrets; Priestess people are highly compassionate and slow to find fault with others.

Priestess people believe in the inherent goodness in people and understand that all humans have “flaws” etc. While they may see your subconscious secrets, they don’t judge you for them.  Rather they are great friends and mentors because they understand human nature and know instinctively how to help others overcome their limitations.

Priestess people are very wise and are often drawn to careers like psychology, teaching and any position where they can impart wisdom and help others grow.

The challenges with a Priestess card can be a tendency to appear aloof. Priestess people who don’t have good command of their intuition/emotions can also have bouts of intense anxiety, depression, and moodiness.

The strengths of Priestess people are keen intuition, a strong mind and innate understanding of human nature, and a good balance between logic and intuition.

The Fool

The Fool Tarot CardThe Fool personality is someone who is youthful in their approach to life.  They are naturally curious, open to new experiences and they tend to be rather adaptable to change.  They are sometimes a bit “flaky” as they are very in the moment and not overly concerned about the future.

Not the best planners, but they are more spontaneous and free-spirited than others, which opens their eyes to possibilities that might go unnoticed by those around them.

Their greatest strength can be their detachment.  They are able to leave the past behind and not remain stuck there. They are also able to fully enjoy the present moment and that can open this person to a range of experiences that others might miss or take for granted.

The challenges with the Fool personality can be a tendency to not plan well, to only “fly by the seat of their pants” and as a result, they often trip over challenges that could have been preventable with a bit of foresight and planning.

When properly balanced, the adventurous openness of this card is rare and refreshing.  It is the ability to embrace life and really live it with arms wide open.
