August is the high point of summer, nature is ample, abundant and luscious. Fields full of glorious sunflowers are in full bloom, the fragrance of crops ready for harvest and the scent of fresh hay fills the air. Bees hum and the wind blows softly and languid through the long grass.
The Empress embodies this pleasant, lazy and calm time before the onset of early Autumn.
One of the most feminine cards of the Tarot, she embodies the worldly and earthy of a woman’s sexuality and personifies the abundance of life. Full of life, the Empress is all woman, curvaceous, confident in her own skin and natural in in her femininity.
