this is the first tarot card i ever chose to represent myself in a reading...
i was eighteen when i identified myself as the empress.
i am double that age now and i still do.
while exploring a local bookstore last week, she winked at me from a tall shelf.
her crown of stars delighted me in a whole new way and i smiled radiantly at this realization.
she has now been pulled out of a tattered old box and is resting regally on the altar in my studio.
ah, the empress.
