L’Impératrice III ( The Empress) – Tarot series; major arcana

I am the Empress, the fertility of Earth
I am the bounties and cruelties of matter
In the folds of my mantle play the timid fawns
On the watery glaze from my tears glide the swans
I am the passions of the Nymph and the Satyr
The mother of the soul, the cycles of rebirth.
