The Empress can refer to any aspect of Motherhood. She can be an individual mother, but, she also goes beyond the specifics of mothering to its essence - the creation of life and its sustenance through loving care and attention.
The Empress can also represent lavish abundance of all kinds. She offers a cornucopia of delights, especially those of the senses - food, pleasure and beauty.
