Gaia - The Empress

From Chrysallis Tarot

The ground we walk on belongs to a holistic, conscious, self-regulating biosphere – a oneness we call Gaia, who sustains all life on Earth.

Gaia is surrounded by the abundant beauty of her creation. She cradles a white dove, symbolic of peace, love and divinity. A nest filled with robin eggs represents birth and renewal. In a reading, Gaia symbolises new ideas, new beginnings, new understanding, and sometimes even a new baby. This scene is flush with symbolism. The snail cautions you to be patient, the mouse to be trustful, and the lotus flower to be pure in heart.

Gaia is one of the Chrysalis cards honouring the Great Mother. When Gaia graces a reading, she reminds you to be a positive, nurturing and loving person. By doing so, with her you will co-create your own abundance.
