Go where it’s wild ♥️

It was Monday, my day off, and the hours moved by quickly and smooth. A mechanic stopped by first thing in the morning to take another look at the oil pump in the cellar. It was last Wednesday when I noticed the pump running for approximately three hours straight, and decided to call for service. Again, and it’s been only a few weeks since there was a problem and it was serviced. I suspected the worst but then the pump ran fine for the entire week. At least as far as I know. It could have ran three hours while I was out of the house, so who knows.

I did laundry, cooked and cleaned a bit, and believe it or not I feel tired from doing very little. I know it’s still the restless nights with interrupted sleep that is to blame for it, but I can feel a change and I am getting better.

I stumbled across my tarot deck this evening and thought it was perfect timing to draw a card. What was to be next in line for this journey, I wonder. I think I already knew, and that is when it’s even more amazing to draw a card and have it confirm what’s already there.

I held the cards against my chest and said my little invocation, getting ready to shuffle them as I noticed one card upside. Only one against the rest of the deck. How could that have happened? I took it as a sign that this was the one that was presenting itself to me. I pulled the card without shuffling the deck and low and behold it was “The Empress” that I pulled. Probably not a better fitting card for me at this time, and it simply blew me away. Have I mentioned that I love tarot and to this day never drew a wrong card?

Well anyways, this is what my steampunk card from Barbara Moore’s deck had to say.

As a major arcana card, The Empress represents significant influences in our lives. These are the milestones, the life lessons and the human experience. Major arcana Cards are also linked to deeply spiritual messages, representing powerful forces, events and developments over which we have little control. Wow….right.

The Empress herself comes with a motto that says “Were you looking for a mother figure?” It’s core meaning stands for abundance and creation. GO WHERE IT’S WILD!!!

Intentions: I am here to help you see the universe’s highest wishes for you. Think of me as a mother who is here to push you towards your potential.

Mantra: I am the creator of my life. I wake each day with gratitude for the possibilities that I can bring forth.

The Empress is often likened to Mother Nature, and to cycles of life and death, of creation and destruction, of flower and seed, of the moon and season. She is pure feminine power, all circles, curves, extremes, and sensuality. Her hands indicate the root of her power and a deep connection with the very being of the universe.

The appearance of The Empress promises abundance in your life. She heralds a time for creativity and you are encouraged to tap into this energy and use it to positive advantage in your life. However, the process isn’t always pretty. Whatever it might be comes from the heart of your creative being; as it fights its way into this world, expect a little bit of a mess. The Empress is often associated with motherhood and could indicate your own mother.

The Empress is a wild woman. She comes after the High Priestess to reflect all the success and abundance that’s becoming available as a result of staying true to yourself and your path. The Empress represents fertility. Think of her as being pregnant with potential. Maybe you want to write a book 😳 (how did she know) or simply declare who you truly are and begin to build your life from there. That’s were the Wild comes in as she wants you to answer your calling, to go on that road trip to express your true self. It is time to take action if she’s to build the life she wants. Her power is in her ability to manifest her dreams. She wills things into being and reminds you that the only thing that can hold you back, is yourself.

“Don’t be afraid. Go where it’s wild. There, you’ll be free.”

The Empress is pushing you towards your full potential, and her appearance indicates that you can begin to live your life on your own terms. You’re in alignment with the universe’s highest wishes for you; your wishes and dreams are not just ideas, but intuitive guidance nudging you in the right direction.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Well, I do declare, if ever there was one card that was Rhapsody Boheme incarnate, it is this one. You are The Empress! And yes, the book, you are fertile with your imagination and creativity and you are mother of your ‘child’, the book, who you are birthing, who will have a life of its own as it comes into the world through you. You are enriched by Nature and The Wild is the place of your heart and soul, where you find your energy and replenish it, where you are at one with yourself. You are beauty and sensuality, fully embracing your female divine nature.
    Here, indeed, is all the confirmation you could wish for that everything you have done and are planning to do is on track. Following you heart is your way, you have encapsulated this for all of us on your journey, this is your message and your beautiful truth. You have been in such pain, suffered such a lot despite this but now, the energy is changing, has changed. Your Empress is strongly connected to the inner planes, the otherworlds, an Upperworld queen. Heed any messages you receive, your intuition is your greatest asset. I am beyond delighted for you, my soul sister, the good times are upon you and your power, energy and strength is coming to its greatest potency. x

    1. There truly is so much that goes into this reading and I’m very happy about this card showing. I drawn the High Priestess not too long ago which is an amazing card as well, but the Empress has graduated from the High Priestess on another level.
      Thank you so much for the beauty you have mentioned here and for always getting it. You understand on that level and you’re always here to point my way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤️

  2. I am so glad you shared this! I did a three card spread the other morning and the Empress was one…with my two other cards being the Ace of pentacles and the queen of pentacles. I took it to mean that I am free to pursue my dreams and be creative at this time without money being an issue. Felt right to me. 🙂 I love the tarot, and I love this post. Thank you!

    1. Awe, I’m so glad you enjoyed this and obviously love tarot as well. There is so much to be learnt and I never drew a wrong card. Tarot often confirms what we already know and reconfirms that we are on track or should go for it. Thank you for sharing this with me. Hugs xoxoxo
