What Tarot Card are you?

helloI visited Tasha's blog and she posted this link to find out what tarot card you are - a bit of fun for a Tuesday.

I am The Empress (no comments required please.....supposedly I can also make the earth barren when in fury or grief)

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation (I am waiting for these...sometime soon would be good)

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents, beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

What Tarot Card are You?

So tell me, what card are you????


  1. Great! You get to be the Empress and I got stuck with being the WORLD!


    It fits you like a glove darlin!!

    Nite nite, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite!


  2. Jules - bit of fun heh? Now I want to know what the World means. Thanks for stopping by...

  3. I am also the Empress (eeek!)


    (can I use this on one of my blogs sometime, with a link back to your site?)

    ps: and I thought I was the Fool

    pps: on the other hand...we all are the Fool

  4. Henry - woo hoo - that suits you - given your profession. Of course use it on your site - its a bit of fun. No, I refuse to be a fool any longer!! We are the Empress...Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Well Missy Empress,

    Guess what?! I'm the Star.
    And Jules, I think being the World would be totally cool. I love that Henry's the Empress also.

    This is way to much fun, Lilly.


  6. Lilly, this is so much fun. I agree with Jules. The empress is so you. No wonder I have such spiritual kindred with you. Hehe. I'm off to read your other posts. Good night.

  7. Redchair - Star is perfect for you!!! Thanks for playing. And I agree the World sounds a great card for Jules too.

    Tasha - thanks for the hot tip on the tarot cards!!

  8. I am the WORLD!
    Here's what it says Lilly!
    Ummmm can I omit the part about "the cervix through which everything is born".....
    I guess anyone who knows me would laugh at this because I am the worlds biggest procrastinator. I would love for ANY project to come to fruition!

    Have a blessed day my blogger sister!

    Completion, Good Reward.

    The World is the final card of the Major Arcana, and as such represents saturnian energies, time, and completion.

    The World card pictures a dancer in a Yoni (sometimes made of laurel leaves). The Yoni symbolizes the great Mother, the cervix through which everything is born, and also the doorway to the next life after death. It is indicative of a complete circle. Everything is finally coming together, successfully and at last. You will get that Ph.D. you've been working for years to complete, graduate at long last, marry after a long engagement, or finish that huge project. This card is not for little ends, but for big ones, important ones, ones that come with well earned cheers and acknowledgements. Your hard work, knowledge, wisdom, patience, etc, will absolutely pay-off; you've done everything right.

  9. Hey Lilly Girl, Of COURSE you are the Empress and I am your loyal side-kick because I am...."STRENGTH" (read the last line. That's what I am for you! Hugs to you my friend.)

    "STRENGTH" -- Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgment, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy. This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion's hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden's steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion's mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one's personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.

  10. fun post. i'm the sun. happiness, contentment and joy. ;-)

  11. Jules - wow, it suits you - all the good work you have put in means its all finally coming together for you!

    Robin - yes, 'unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable' - that is you alright. And a steadfast friend. Interesting most of us have different cards.

    Horatio - fun and joy, thats you. Thank goodness!

  12. I have a great interest in tarots .I feel I will go for card of justice
