So you have pulled the reversed empress card. That is totally fine but it does tell you that you need to make self care and self love a priority right now. You may feel like you have been giving everything to everybody else so now is the time to focus on you and what you want. Start to fill your own cup first. It is time for you to start to regain that independence and inter-dependence that you need to be strong and powerful. Stop allowing others to make decisions for you and instead make the decisions that are right for you.
What is your relationship looking like right now? Do you find your partner is smothering you or is too controlling? Are they finding it really difficult to express how they really feel? If so, pulling this card is a good opportunity for you to recognise this and start to take back that self worth and inner power that you deserve. If you are in a relationship, it is time for you to both spend more time together so that you may nurture and nourish that relationship. Be careful at the moment of becoming overbearing and make sure that you are expressing your true emotions and fears to the one that you love. Eliminate those insecurities and watch your relationships flourish.
Right now your career is feeling unfulfilled and monotonous. You have a creative block that is stopping you from moving forward with your projects. You may be feeling right now that people don't understand you or you are feeling a little insecure about your current career path, but don't worry because now is the opportune time to decide which insecurities need an external or an internal change. Do you need a change in career or do you just need to focus on building your confidence instead.
