Celebrating the Feminine - The Empress; Accessing your Creative Genius
Hello Everyone! Hope you're doing well and enjoying your summer. As we head into Virgo season, with a New Moon in Virgo today, I hope you receive a wonderful harvest from your efforts of all kinds be it relationships, work/career, health, finances and of course Spiritual. Apologies for being out of touch for a while, most certainly a time for inner development, healing, cleansing and releasing. I've been thinking about and sending lots of energy.
I'll be continuing the Celebrating the Feminine series. We'll be working with
the Queens next! That should be interesting for sure. Lol.
Much Love to you and yours. Here's the Empress.
Birthing, Creativity and Abundance
The Empress lives at the Top of the Tree of Life in the Qabalistic tradition. Her Hebrew name is Daleth, meaning Door. The entrance way of our Divinity into Kether, All That Is, and the entrance way of the Divine into the Earth making its way toward Malkuth, the physical manifestation of all things.
Creativity is the doorway to greater abundance.
This is an aspect of the feminine for both women and men so from here we’ll describe The Empress as ‘She’ and ‘Her’.
Whether your birthing a baby, a project, a career or a new lifestyle the Empress is an excellent
archetype for fostering your creative genius and creating more abundance in your life. In her world, all creatures both big and small have meaning and purpose and contribute to the surrounding eco-system. Everything is connected, everything lives and everything dies. All are respected.
Think mother earth and how she supports everything from humans to vegetables and livestock, to the mouse to the elephant, the snake and eagle, the lion and the antelope. Think mushrooms and the underground connections that help all plants digest nutrients and recycle organic waste as it decays, creating the ground we stand on.
How can you connect with that which nourish’s you and that which you nourish simultaneously?
What situations are mutually symbiotic? The Empress would state that there’s plenty of opportunities around you so move toward them, clearly, openly and positively. If you choose not to, say so quickly, respectfully and honestly and then move on. It’s okay.
Mother Nature will always strive to create a balance within the ecosystem, she’ll create species that you can’t even imagine yet, and she’ll destroy some, and inherently so will you. That’s also the nature of Qabala to teach us about the
connection between creativity and balance, how that’s Divinely achieved and to discover the ever-present pendulum flow.
This lifetime your living, is the balancing factor of other lifetimes lived, as well as those to come. All things are born and all things must die, that’s the cycle of life.
When you heal the present, you heal the past and the future.
The Human body is, by nature, regenerative and tremendously resilient. When you work with the energy of the the Empress actively engage ways to replenish your own personal ecosystem. A good nights rest allows the body to heal and regroup. A healthy diet, prebiotics and probiotics, digestive enzymes and enough water are very helpful in restoring the natural balance of your personal system.
Meditation and energy work help you center and clear the channels allowing you to be a strong conduit for your higher self. Positive and constructive thinking allow for more comfort in your own mind and therefore in the world you perceive. Forgiveness, kindness, generosity and love heal the emotions and therefore brings more comfort into the world that you feel.
Exercising and especially connecting with nature is highly advised. Ground your energy as you connect with this powerful force of life and death.
Taking up more spontaneous and creative pursuits opens the door for fresh energy to
enter your heart, spirit, mind and body. This keeps the garden of your Soul thriving, free of weeds and keeps the invasive species of your mind at bay.
Through the Empress all things will flow. She’s part Magician and part High Priestess, with an unseen element of the Fool, allowing her to be that Unique combination of Magical Wisdom. That’s a give and take process; give to life, she’ll give to you in return. The lemniscate, the ouroboros, all things must flow and change and all things are connected.
The Advice from the Empress is to get creative, remember your alive, move toward that which stimulates, thrills and excites you. There is a tremendous amount of promise within you and it’s time to activate your inner resources to escort you to the next level.
Dream more than you’ve ever dared to dream, reach higher than you thought possible and share your love openly and often.
Life herself will repay you in-kind.
