I think it’s pretty synchronistic that on this day specifically named to honor women, I would pick the Empress for my daily card. Abundance, nurturing, beauty, maternal, birth — all of these and more are traits of the Empress.
I am a woman, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a dancer, a teacher, a tarot reader, an energy worker, a small business owner. I am the mother of felines. I have no children by conscious choice. I’ve never regretted that decision. To anyone who would judge me as being less than whole for not going through childbirth I say this: I have given birth and nurtured the growth of countless creative projects, ideas, thoughts and dreams. I have dug my hands into the wet soil of the earth, planted seeds, watered and watched as trees, plants and flowers pushed forth into lush gardens for many to enjoy.
Along with my life partner (my husband and soulmate), I have grown a small business of 10 employees into a successful small corporation with 37 employees.
I honor my Mom who instilled in me a good work ethic. I honor my sisters who paved the way for me to grow up in a loving household. I honor my girlfriends, past and current, goddesses who continue to offer me compassion and extreme companionship through thick and thin.
I honor the girl I was, the woman I grew to be and the beautiful essence of feminine power I am today. My love, my earthy, grounded spiritual expression serves as notice to all:
I am Woman. Hear me roar.
