Mother?

Daily Draw: Rider Waite Jubilee Tarot ~ Empress

One of the root descriptors for this card is Mother. There is a book by Stephan B. Poulter that posits there are just five mother types, and all mothers fall in that range. Clearly, he sees what he wants to see to fit his theory. Nor does it take in all the ramifications of earth based Mother Nature which covers all the rest of living things.

I'm reminded by this card, in spite of the fact that I'm not a mother, I can recognize that pigeon-holing someone is to be blind. We are all so much more...

A factoid about March 15, in addition to being the Ides of March, it is also a holy day of Rhea, Greek goddess of the earth, mother of Zeus, and an aspect of the Great Mother.

"My mother loved children - she would have given anything if I had been one." ~ Groucho Marx 1890-1977
