The Shahbanu, or Empress, is a mother figure who sits majestically in a field of pomegranate orchards with a lush forest behind her. Visibly affluent, she has mastered abundance in the physical world without giving up her connection with Mother Earth. When this card appears for you, you are being asked to turn to the nurturance in your life, whether it is helping others, self-care, receiving support, accepting your limitations, or loving and forgiving yourself. The Shahbanu is asking you to be in flow with the earth, and to use its healing power to heal and rejuvenate that which may be out of balance. What is your relationship with self care?
