The Mother - Meaning


The card represents femininity and fertility. It symbolizes energy of life and refers to the renewal of the blossoms of life. The mother has creative strength. She looks after her family and protects them – and senses the energy of life. This card shows that something new will start or happen - prosperity and femininity. Femininity is in the focus now and the part of the mother becomes importance with consideration of the family, friends, the career and projects. Sensitivities about new horizons and emotionality emerge by experience and new perspective.     

Negative aspects
