The Empress--Key 3-The Illuminating Intelligence

The Empress--Key 3--"The Gate of Heaven"

The Empress represents the Universal Womb, in which all manifestation is gestated. As I have said before in past blogs, She is the Path of Daleth (means-Door) that spans between Chokma (All Father) and Binah (All Mother) and is a Transitional state of Energy. Just as Chokma has the capacity to emanate the "Pure female" (called Virgin Goddess) the Empress Path of Daleth, is the merging of the Intelligent Energy states of Chokma and Binah. She is the pregnant balance of incubation and passivity. It is this Door that effects the transition from One into Many, thus being the Gate of Heaven.
I have always called the Empress, "The Womb with a View" as she transforms idea into form.
She is Earth Mother, as well, for almost every culture has some form or name of her. She is the Mother of Gods and often gives birth to an intermediary deity, such as Christ, who rules the earth. At this high -Supernal Triangle-stage in the Tarot, words are always metaphorical and the pictures alone unconsciously  communicate a great deal of information about the forces than any word can conceive. Thus it is recommended that these Trump Cards be used as mandalas for meditation. The Empress is often called the "Mother of Light" since the Dark Fiery Energy of Chokma pass through Her as a door that, transmits the form of light that we can see so she is often seen drawn with a light face and a dark face.. As did Janus the Roman God of communication ( the Latin janua means door.) which is the passage of ideas, and controlled the affairs of men. Janus was originally a Solar Deity and the Empress is also known as Mother Sun...they are both the same metaphoric description of the Intelligent Energy that builds Worlds. Yet, the primary god-form related to the Empress is Venus-Aphrodite, who in Greek Mythology arose from the Ocean, naked riding a scallop shell. When ever she stepped on land flowers grew, and thus we also know the Empress  in terms of  luxurious proliferation making each facet of Nature beautiful and compelling that we can be in danger of losing sight of the whole by the dazzle of the parts. This is about what we do with the human body----as spirit, we supply the whole of Emotion (energy in motion) to our forms, but often the individual emotional parts become so hypnotic that we forget the Whole for the focus of the parts. We become servants to what dazzles us with beauty, and forget that we are The Beauty that Operates Form.
The Empress is the Goddess of Love and the symbol of Venus encompasses the entire Tree of Life which expresses the fact that Love is the formative energy of the Tree of Life---i.e. The Universe; However, Venus maybe subjective in the Supernal Triangle, She is objective as a Sephira--Netzach which is a part of the  Astral Triangle of Personality. There is a very profound mystery here, as there are three planetary forces that find their objective expression in the Sephira low (meaning density) on the Qabalistic Tree of Life while their subjective expressions called paths, are found at the opposite extreme of the Supernal Triangle.[Hod-Mercury, The Magician; Yesod-Moon, The High Priestess; and Netzach-Venus, The Empress]. To me the mystery of Life and the Alive finds solution here. Remember that Life loves its forms....as any mother knows, the child is more important than anything else to her! The Empress expressed thought into forms and through the administration of the Sun_ center of Tiphareth. God creates the universe  by
continuous  thought, and as God's Image, human kind creates reality by constantly thinking of it.  The study of the Empress card is indeed needed for the Self-Knowledge of the student Qaballist.
