Daily Mindfulness - The Haindl Tarot
So much symbolism in this deck and here are some of the symbols for the Empress. Daleth = door, and the door is open behind the Empress. The Doorway is said to symbolize culture and the arch is said to suggest a church, for religion. The Empress stands on a crescent moon that floats in water, a snake wrapped around her arm - the snake represents transformation and enlightenment.
This Empress means: passion, love of Nature, Motherhood and joyous activity - she is the doorway to many things and that door goes both ways. Rachel Pollack in her book on this deck says this card is indicative of sexuality and the responsibilities of parenthood and spirituality - with everyone working together - creative and sexual expression seem to be the jist of this card. Supreme fertility in all areas of life, she provides nourishment and security.
