In the Middle Ages the Empress was known as the “Love of Heaven”, the universal creative force. The Empress sits in the center of a radiant sun and her feet resting on the moon. The sun is a symbol of a creative power. The moon under her feet means the insignificance of a matter and the domination of the spirit.
Rely on fate, stay calm and let the events take their course. You already have all you need.
