The Empress – nurturer of the world

This drawing came out fully formed. No pre-sketches or working out of ideas. It is also the first time I have felt like my drawing skills are coming back. The drawings previous to this one are rough out lines that need to be redrawn sometime soon.

The Empress here has as her primary focus the association with Venus. I think that there will be a lot to talk about in relationship to the Emperor but I am struggling with him right now so I will get into that in another post.

    I love her. I can’t wait to see her in full colour. I connect with the bird imagery because when I was pregnant birds seemed to come to me as never before and to me the empress says nurture and pregnancy, etc. I also enjoy that sneaky stag hiding behind her!
