{card} crown of stars

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.
