When reversed, the Empress is a sign that you need to stop and recharge. You’re on the brink of burning out or putting yourself on an unhealthy path. Don’t neglect your own needs in an attempt to satisfy others or chase creative pursuits. You’re draining yourself, and in spite of how good it feels to be needed, your willpower is a finite resource. This position can also signify that someone in your life is trying to send you important signals. You might need to spend time with someone or give them a little space. Be alert and read the signals well to understand their true meaning.
