Your Tarot Card?

There were several questions on this quiz that I could have answered in more than one correct fashion. But then, I think more than one Tarot card could fit me.
Being the Empress recalls to mind a spread my friend Betty did for me last summer, which I wish I could remember properly. It was a magnificent set of cards, and the Empress was one of them. It looked as though everything was going to go well for me (well, the important things in life). It was like looking at a great challenge and knowing that I would succeed. Sort of like being all warmed up skiing, not tired yet, and looking down an enticing slope.

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

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.

Speaking of rabbits, the fanciers who read this might be amused or maybe weirded out by Michael Sowa's painting "Hase im Fenstern", which you can check out at:

Apparently I'm The Star: "Hope, expectation, Bright promises." Um, yeah. Like you, however, I could have answered a couple of the questions in several ways. (Is there one called The Cynic?)
