The Empress in the Hierophant's Clothing

The Empress as the Hierophant

Venus moves into Taurus today and will stay there until June 9th.

If we look at this transit from a Tarot perspective, it would be like the Empress is wearing the Hierophant’s clothing. She’s moved from casual comfort to a more authoritative formal look.

The Empress loves life. She loves it in all its manifestations, good, bad and in between.

Not as concerned with the rules, she looks for the flow, the endless streams of experience that arise with every new breath.

She’s creativity at its most profound level. She literally gave birth to the world, and all her children are precious.

She doesn’t like to tell them what to do. She’d rather encourage them to be as fully themselves as they can be.

The Hierophant has a different perspective. He too embraces the experiences of the senses, but he’s much more concerned with control.

He’s not so much about the flow as he is about the word, rules and the law. He wants to be the pipe through which the divine speaks to the masses. He’s always looking for the ‘true’ path.

The Hierophant is disciplined and focused. He’s very comfortable with ritual, and traditions for him can become almost sacred.

The Empress enjoys her time in this position. Though typically less rigid than the Hierophant, she appreciates his reverence for life and desire to share the glory of the divine.

Venus in Taurus, or the Empress in the Hierophant’s clothing can be a time of faith that the universe is operating exactly as it should. How could it not be? The world’s mother is in charge.

Creative energies can be contained, directed and used to exalt the lowly and the sublime. It’s a time of sensuality, but one that’s refined and under control.

Fine art, philosophy, music, and good food. Embrace it all and celebrate how amazing it is to be human.

As long as the Empress is in this outfit, the rule of the day is grace, love and beauty.
