This is the 4th post in this series. You can start at the beginning with The Fool.
For this comparison, I have used these decks: Everyday Witch Tarot, Crystal Visions Tarot, The Steampunk Tarot, and The Green Witch Tarot.
At first glance the first thing you see in these cards is that The Empress is pregnant in all of them. I purposely chose cards from these decks because that is ultimately what The Empress represents to me: Fertility/New Life.
Fruitfulness, Mother energy, and Femininity are also represented by the pregnancy.
In The Green Witch Tarot, Everyday Witch Tarot, and Crystal Visions Tarot she is holding a scepter. In The Steampunk Tarot she is simply holding a ball of light. This shows that she power and control over life, especially if you consider she's doing this with a new life inside of her.
In three of the decks you see that she is surrounded by nature. She is also in control of this growth, as plants are life, too.
And she also seems to be pretty content, as she has lots around her: Fulfillment and Abundance.
The Empress is also known for being a sparking Creative Energy.
- New Life
- Mother Nature
- Power Over Life
Did you notice any other similarities? What do they make you think of?
I hope you're enjoying Tarot by Comparison!
Next up is The Emperor (coming soon).
