This Empress has a garden full of flowers which all came from her body.
I'm reminded by this card the things we want the most seldom come from someone else, it needs to come from within. Empresses are standers not leaners.

The Deviant Moon Tarot by Patrick Valenza is the workhorse deck of the week. Published 2008 by U.S. Games Systems, this is a deck like no other. Some call it dark and frightening, to me it is sweet and melencholy. That is the joy of decks and why we have so many to choose from. Thank you Patrick, for sharing your art with us.
