Sexual Key To The Tarot: III THE EMPRESS
Look at her holding her phallic symbol high in the air, she is fearless of the penis, playful even. She adores the male organ and will worship it openly without shame. Her esteem manifests itself in overt sexual acts such as fellatio and, uh, scrotolingus. The proximity of the sceptre to her face suggests her delight in fellatio, and is further represented by the enlarged and bulbous round head of the symbol. The full and enlarged head of the penis before ejaculation. That the head is globular secondarily suggests her pursuit of worldly pleasures and the fruitfulness of her sexual pursuit.
She stare straight out from the image, full-faced, and is supportive of how open and frank she is in sexual matters. She conceals nothing, she is a progression from the secrecy of the High Priestess. She is not a woman who can be cajoled or coerced into sex, she is the instigator of pleasure. She chooses her lover with authority over her passions; and once chosen he shall know paradisaical sensual pleasure at her hands. The Empress nature is the door to sexual pleasure.
In a reading we see passion that gives it's all! A rich harvest of sexual pleasure and dynamic orgasms as a reward for the physical labor and sensual toil of courtship, foreplay, and intercourse.
Reversed we'll see all this energy dispersed. Wasted efforts yielding nothing, and this lack of productivity affects the home life, chaotic situations arise. Depression leads to a low libido. Lack of interest.
(This is a series I'll do on the sexual interpretation of the cards inspired by the book ''The Sexual Key To The Tarot'' by Theodor Laurence. Love to hear any insights from anyone else out there who loves the intimacy tarot can bring into our lives.)
