The third trump in all traditional tarot desks, the Empress is a mother and a nurturer, a beautiful woman offering gifts.
In the Rider-Waite tarot deck, the Empress is a young, blonde woman, sitting on a throne, wearing a crown with twelve stars gathered in a cluster and holding a sceptre surmounted by a globe in her right hand. The throne is in the midst of a field of grain and beyond there is a fall of water. On the shield which rests near her, there is the symbol of the Greek goddess of femininity, love and fertility, Venus.
