III The Empress (Venus)

III Empress shadowed by King of Swords: the two of these cards together is about the integration and nurturing of the two energies, closing the gap between the Yin and the Yang, the combination creating a whole and becoming complete (our focus number nine). These two cards together combine emotional, physical, and intellectual. The female beauty who speaks truth plainly commands both respect and admiration. The Judge in a legal dispute is both discerning and understanding in his balanced and fair rulings.
