You are an Empress.

You were born to shine your bright light. 

The sovereign Queen that you are is meant to rise in all her glory, in all that she embodies in her Divine Feminine power. She is intended to be seen, acknowledged, and revered for who she is.

“The word, the triad, plentitude, fecundity, Nature, generation in the three worlds. Symbol, THE EMPRESS, a woman, winged, crowned, seated and uplifting a scepter with the orb of the world at its end: her sign is an eagle, image of the Soul and of life. She is the mystical quintessence of the triad; she is spirituality, immortality, The Queen of Heaven.” - Eliphas Levi from ‘The Doctrine and Ritual of Transcendental Magic (1854)
