Welcome to our stop on the Tarot Blog Hop. The blog before us is Morgan Drake Eckstein. If you didn't get here from there, don't miss him!
The topic for this Hop was posed by Aisling the Bard of Tarot Witchery. She asks, "What is "in your Belly"? What do you wish to give birth to, to nurture, during this new season? What is the Poet, the Healer, the Maker, within you longing to do, to Become?
Because we publish cards, we like to show off our beautiful things. Who better to represent the concept of "in the belly" than the Empress of the tarot? She is the third numbered Major Arcana but the fourth if you see the Fool as the first. Her energy is abundance and fertility and creativity. Most often, this card is shown as a pregnant woman.
Enjoy these images from some of our decks.
