Most times, its standing near their doorway yet they are looking the other way. Abundance can also be defined as what makes us happy. And it is not just about the physical possessions we own or our financial net worth.
At times we find in some relationships – where just being with that particular person for a while makes us incredibly happy. Or doing something with a whole herated effort and the sense one gets upon it’s manifestation! It could be a good day at gym, buying flowers for yourself, watching the sun stream in your children’s room while you watch them sleep. It could also be having wine with a close friend and pouring your heart out and knowing that he/she understands and loves you for who you are.
Abundance also can come from doing the things you love, good health, and a life that lets you live according to your values and beliefs.
In Tarot, The Empress is associated with abundance – she is symbolic of creation of life, of love, art or business. She symbolizes planet 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.
The Empress card is a beautiful bright card when it appears in a reading. She epitomizes most of the qualities a mother has – sensible, patient, loving, giving, generous. The card also symbolizes all the material wealth.
