She is the Mother, the Lover, the Goddess. She is wrapped in a wealth of luxuries, in abundance and opulence. She brings with her care and nourishment, the birth of art and creativity, of connections and happiness. She is the Empress and she governs Life.
In her footsteps the world blooms, ideas take root and hearts grow stronger. At her touch the nature celebrates in the richness of summer both in spirit and matter.
For all things stagnant she brings new hope, new sparkles and sensuality, new reasons to laugh, new reasons to reach out to others. Even better reasons to reach out to ourselves and awaken.
Within her lies the mystery of the feminine, from the pleasures of passion to the joy of play. From the nurturing protection to generous sharing of the world.
She is the Empress. May we all be so fortunate as to have her influence our lives, may we all dare to step forward to meet her and embrace her teachings.
The whole look was inspired by the makeup by Fallen Gods Inc., which in turn was created for the Create Your Own Tarot event. It’s a relatively new event, going through the Major Arcana card by card. This round is all about The Empress.
The surroundings are completely by The Looking Glass, hailing back to this spring’s Fantasy Faire and Ichi-go Ichi-e sim, plenty of which is now available in the main store. The little sakura fairies are a group gift, even! Both the headdress by deviousMind and the robe by =Zenith= are gacha prizes from past events. I know deviousMind has the gacha in their main store and I’d trust =Zenith= adds hers eventually, too.
