Empress Reversed: Food Intolerances

The Empress R

Food intolerance has been the topic du jour for me for the last little while (hmm, if jour means day, how do you say ‘le topic of the month’?) My obsession if you will. Which is what happens when you start losing your hair courtesy of your inability to process everyday foods. And it got me to thinking…which Tarot card would come up in a reading to symbolise food intolerances?

The card that springs to my mind is The Empress. She is drawn as a woman pregnant with child and as such represents, among other things, nourishment. So I guess The Empress Reversed would suggest a lack of nourishment. That’s my call anyway.

Which card/s would you choose?
