In fact, the nuns at her Catholic school represented her
earliest image of female power—and “divine” feminine power at that. She hated

eternally loving archetype. The Empress is strong and fierce but also soft and
playful. I did a similar process for him as with Leslie and had him focus on the
Empress Tarot card.
