For this series -- "One Card One Meaning" -- I will pull one card from a deck and offer a brief, simple *possible* interpretation -- not the ONLY interpretation, of course, but one possible interpretation of that card from that deck. I hope you will offer your thoughts on each card as well!
From The Fairytale Tarot by Lisa Hunt (Llewellyn Publications):
In this charming deck, The Empress is represented by The Fairy Godmother. For those who know the story of Cinderella, the connection is clear: The Fairy Godmother is the nurturer, the one who encourages and supports, who helps everything and everyone grow into what they are meant to be. Nurturing and nurturers can take many forms, whether we are talking about being nurtured (by someone else or ourself) or providing nurture.
