I'm The Empress-heck yeah!

MidwifeKnits


You are The Empress


Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.


The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.


The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is 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.

I find it very interesting that you, Grace of Lovin Comfort Knits (http://lovincomfortknits.blogspot.com/), who knits beautiful lace shawls, and another talented lace knitter known on the About.com Knitting Forum as Calamintha, all came out as Empresses! I wonder what may be the connection between lace knitting and the attributes of an Empress?
