The Empress is the nurturing mother, the Earth Mother, who wants to protect us and make sure we are all taking care of ourselves. When the Empress card shows up it represents the need to get back to basics and rekindle the simplicity in life. Start by eating better, sleeping more, and getting back to the dance of enjoying life. Take time to be with your family. Rediscover the joy of moving with the flow of nature. Perhaps a nurturing break is in order. They say if you take a break for ten minutes after working for fifty minutes, you will feel better and remember more. Slow down and nurture yourself. When you are kind to yourself, you will be kind to others.
