The Empress is the card of abundance, fertility, marriage, and unconditional love. She is Venus, ruling over all matters of the heart: love, relationships, sexuality, affection, desire, beauty, luxury, and art.
The Empress is as generous as she is sensuous. As the mother of all creation, she believes that everyone deserves to be loved. She provides, nurtures, and cares. Her love is everlasting.
If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Empress, that means that the relationship will be nurturing. This can either be nurturing you–as in pampering you, treating you “like an empress”. Or, they want to nurture something together with you. This could be a child, a project, a business, or a pet. Your person wants to provide for whatever the two of you want to build together. As the symbol of the mother, this also indicates unconditional love. Make sure you don’t take your person for granted, you’re very lucky to have them!

If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Empress reversed, that means that a lot of loving energy is being blocked. You or your person could be unhealed, leading to an inability to give or receive love. There could have been childhood scars left by an unhealthy maternal figure or bad role models. One of you could struggle with feelings of unworthiness, feeling unloved, or neglected. Money matters could be a sore point in this relationship. There could be overspending or feelings of resentment over feeling taken advantage of.
The Empress reversed as love outcome is a sign of an unhealthy relationship. Just as under-nurturing can be an issue, so can over-nuturting. One of you could have indulgences or bad habits, while the other enables them. One of you acts as the ‘mother’ who indulges the spoiled child who gets away with everything. Or your unconditional love could be taken advantage of. Your person could believe that, like a maternal figure, you would never leave them. It could be time to set some boundaries.
If you are wondering about a potential relationship, the Empress reversed as love outcome means the relationship may not grow as fast as you would like. Maybe one of you is doing all the cultivating while the other only enjoys the fruit. If you give this relationship a try, at some point you need to ask yourself some hard questions. Am I giving more than I’m getting? Not that relationships should be transactional, but there should be balance. Make sure your good nature isn’t being taken for granted.
If you are in a new relationship, the Empress reversed as love outcome means it will take some extra effort for the relationship to flourish. There could be blocked emotions that need to be unlocked. One or both of you could be unaccustomed to expressing feelings openly. The lack of warmth in the relationship needs to be healed. Alternatively, this relationship can feel smothering, suffocating, and domineering.
If you are in an existing relationship, the Empress reversed as love outcome means you need to rebalance current dynamics. In the upright position, the Empress is a monarch who can stand on her own two feet. But in the reverse, this card could indicate neediness and clinginess. Rather than lead with love, someone could resort to manipulative tactics to get what they want. A reversed Empress lacks confidence and can be prone to jealous outbursts. This card asks us to dig deep into our childhood wounds and heal our insecurities.
If you are currently in separation with each other, the Empress as love outcome means your person is feeling conflicted. They miss being intimate with you, but they also acknowledge something was lacking. Maybe there was a lack of chemistry, maybe it was one-sided. There could have been a lack of emotional compatibility or differing love languages. If you can overcome these issues, you might have a chance of working things out with your ex. But some heavy-duty healing will need to be had.
