Letters From Thoth & The New Era Elements
The Empress (Thoth)
The second of the alchemical trumps and represents salt. The Empress sits in Daleth, which means Door. And she is our doorway into this life as well as the doorway to all things that fall under the Empresses rule. She sits in Venus and rejoices in love. Crowley describes her as the "inactive principle of Nature, Salt is matter which must be energized by Sulfur (The Emperor) to maintain the whirling equilibrium of the Universe."
The Empress (NEE)
This is our creative female principal - she brings the joy of life and physical well being. This is the Earth Momma with great energy and self-confidence. I love this part: Behind her we see a dark doorway - The Empress is not only passage we enter into life - she is also the doorway leading us out of it - The Goddesses can take as well as give. The Mother energy can be very kind and loving but it can also harness Molly Weasley and fuck your shit up if you mess with what she loves.
A day ruled by the Empress is sure to hold a lot of love and creation, compassion and peace. Be courageous and let the love of the Universe flow through you and nourish you. This is an unconditional love where we can be who we are and not have to pretend to be anything else in the hopes that someone will love us. You are perfect as you are and The Empress will give you the passion and confidence to be authentically you.
