Zombie Tarot: The Empress
Image via WikipediaThe Empress is the mother of the tarot. She is an example of all the potential a woman can have. While The Priestess is the thoughtful aspects of womanhood, the Empress is the emotional. In the Zombie Tarot, she is Lori Grimes from the comic book The Walking Dead.
The Empress sits in an abandoned campsite in the woods. In the woods are zombies but she is not concerned for she is powerful in her own right. She holds the keys to life and death and upon her head is a crown. Her kingdom may have fallen but she will survive.
Upright, The Empress stands for life and love. Even when surrounded by Zombies she shows that there is still something worth living for.
Reversed, The Empress suffers from anxiety. She is afraid for her loved ones and this can turn into unhealthy obsessions. Her emotions can lead her to betray them.
