Empress’ are kind, generous, love beauty and tend towards being of service to the people. Because they are so caring and compassionate they make great mothers, therapists and healthcare practitioners. They thrive being connected to those they love and feel depleted when they spend time with people that just take everything from them. Who are you surrounding yourself with? Are they contributing to you and the life you desire to create?
The Empress can be one of the more creative archetypes and that creativity can come out in many different ways such as… a child, a book, a painting, a song, a program, jewelry etc. Basically anything that would be beautiful and a contribution in some way. What creative projects are calling to you at this time that would be generative, fun and expand your agenda? Are you doing them? If not, would you be willing to begin spending just 10 minutes a day on creating just for you just for fun?
There are a few archetypes that almost always say yes and in this case the Empress is no exception. If you ever want someone to give the shirt off their back it would be the empress and they would often do it even if that meant they might freeze to death. The empress can have nebulous boundaries and often need learn how to say no. It is also a challenge for them to receive, since giving comes so much easier to them. They can be stubborn and be the ones doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. Like trying to help someone who doesn’t really want help or always saying yes even when it would be better for everyone if they said no. Would you be willing to choose whats best for you even if sometimes it means saying no to others?
The Empress’ Questions:
1. What would be a contribution and a kindness to my health and wellbeing?
2. What feels heavy? What feels light? And follow what feels light even if it means saying no.
3. What energy space and consciousness can me and my body be to be the energy space and consciousness of unlimited receiving?
Believe in Yourself, You are Magic!
