Thoth Deck Tarot: THE EMPRESS-key 3: The Path of Daleth

THE EMPRESS, is the Path of Daleth-meaning-Door, and Her planet is Venus. THE EMPRESS, is also called the "Gate way to Heaven", as She is the transitional state of energy between  the Above and the Below. The effect of this transition is from One into many, so the key to this card is multiplicity.
If one looks at THE HIGH PRIESTESS card, they'll observe a simple diaphanous robe, that of THE EMPRESS is appropriately covered with all the jewels of creation. As a Qabalist, I am painfully aware of the inadequacy of anthropomorphic symbolism when describing the Supernal Triangle, the As Above, yet Tarot pictures unconsciously communicate a great deal of information, that words can only flail at. The images represented in THE EMPRESS card are an attempt to convey the concept of pure fruition. As an exercise towards this goal of understanding, the initiate must try to conceive of pure emotion., which is a feeling which has no subject or object, neither love nor hate, but which is the raw material of both; a kind of Lust without need of result. Armed with such an understanding, the initiate may begin to understand something of the Great Binah, The Great Mother, THE EMPRESS, who is the Illuminating Intelligence or  Birth Mother  of Ideas through transitional state of Understanding.  She is Mother Nature. 
All that is Life on Earth is the providence of THE EMPRESS, as she builds life forms around the Spirit of Life, establishing the Laws of the Universe that have to do with restriction and formation. She is the Supernal Female Force. She is also Venus-Aphrodite. the Goddess of Love. Love is the Law. The Luminous Intelligence of Chokmah, becomes the Illuminating Intelligence of  THE EMPRESS, inferring filling up and emitting Light, thus bestowing the title of Mother of Light on the Great Mother. 
She is a Door, and one may pass through a door in any direction, to pass through Her on the Return Path, is to pass into Supreme Darkness. The  dual dynamic of the Door, has often been shown as Janus, the Roman Two-Faced god,each face looking in opposite directions. In fact the Latin word janua means door and this god was stated by the Romans, to have presided over communications and the affairs of men. Here then, as THE EMPRESS, Janus resided over the passage of ideas. Originally, Janus was a Solar Entity, and THE EMPRESS is the Mother of the Sun, so the comparison is not only viable but pertinent as well, so anything that can be said about Janus can be said about THE EMPRESS  as well, even though she is anthropomorphized as Venus-Aphrodite.
The Luxurious Proliferation of Nature  with each facet so compelling, being both beautiful and hypnotic, it is possible for the student to lose sight of the Overview of the Path of Daleth. This point was acknowledge by A. Crowley in his Book of Thoth, where he warned,"..the student who is dazzled by any given  manifestation may be led astray. In no other card is it so necessary to disregard the parts and to concentrate upon the whole". 
We know that the Venus-Aphrodite is the "Goddess of Love' but many forgot that She is also named the "Goddess of Desire". Desire, being born with the most abstract principle of Form, holds a very specific meaning for the Student of the Mysteries, as to feel is to desire, but to unite wholly with the Universe, requires the "want of nothing". Thus, the coming to or the leaving of desire is another aspect of the Door Way that is THE EMPRESS-- Path of Daleth.
More on THE EMPRESS in tomorrow's blog. Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.

Hi Khaba. First off, thanks for thinking about me, second, I am a skilled tarot reader of over 40yrs and I get paid for my work like any other skilled laborer. Hence, on my website's price page, I have a PayPal button for interpreting other peoples layouts. Thirdly, one card is not a layout, and only layouts will answer your questions. One card has not enough information, nor is its dignity established by any surrounding cards. You must layout at least three cards in a Yes, No, Maybe set up to get any idea. Sorry, but I don't interpret cards in my comment section. Thank you for your time and may you live long and prosper.
