Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
Larry creates strong, captivating women, and it was a natural fit to include his art as the Empress card. This striking mermaid is a protector of the sea, mother to the ocean. She like the empress, is nurturing yet stern, as a mother ought to be.
A beautiful mermaid floats in the foreground, while a myriad of fish swim serenely around her. But this is no defenseless maiden in need of someone to save her. The Empress of the sea, armored and armed, stands ready to protect the natual abundance of her land, the creatures of her world. She is the embodiment of feminine, maternal power, in perfect balance with her surroundings and nature. She comes to you, part human, and part fish, to bridge the gap of understanding, to encourage you to engage with her world and achieve all that she has dreamt for you.
This card advises you to embrace all aspects of the feminine energy within you, maternal, sensual and protective. Connect with it, and draw upon the creative elements of your soul.
