On the bridge of the Empress of Ireland, Captain Henry Kendall guessed that the approaching ship was roughly eight miles away, giving him ample time to cross her bow before he set his course for more open water.
The Empress of Ireland was not a particularly famous or fashionable ship, and she sank so soon before the outbreak of the war that attention soon shifted to graver matters.
But the lessons from the Empress of Ireland's demise would have to be relearned barely 40 years later during the sinking of the Andrea Doria, when once again fog proved more than a match for the latest in seagoing technology.

 The Empress
The Empress is the archetypal Earth-Mother - she is depicted surrounded by lush growth, with a cornucopia at her side, and with children all around, clinging to her, seeking her boundless nourishment.
The Empress loses her personal ambition and character when she devotes herself exclusively to caring for her consort, and her beloved also loses self, by becoming dependant, subserviant, and childlike.

 Meaning of the Empress Tarot Card
While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born.
Of course, the Empress can also be the worst aspects of an attentive Mom; she can smother, not know when to let go, be possessive and jealous of those who would take away her "baby." It is important for the Querent to realize that plants can die from over-watering as easily as neglect.
This card tells the Querent that if they want their new romance, new career, new business, new creation to grow into all it can be they have to pay attention to it, baby it and be willing to let it take those first steps when it is ready.

 The 20' By 20' Room: The Court of the Empress: an RPG
The Empress should then repeat the cycle of giving her courtiers commands and ordering the death of those who displease her, continuing until she has either executed all the courtiers, or a single courtier remains.
If the Empress is not inclined to grant the request, she should say, "We have graced you with our presence, but no more." The courtier is then exiled to the provinces, but leaves with his life.
The ideas is that the Empress and courtiers are masks that the players put on, masks which make it safe for the Empress's player to act imperiously and for the courtiers to act obsequiously.

 The History of the Empress Card
Thus Empress and Emperor are Mother and Father, transposed from rulership of the household to rulership of the world.
Although there is nothing superficially subversive in the image of the Empress, taken in isolation, her inclusion in the quaternity of rulers and her juxtaposition with the Papess suggests the possibility that she is a wordless manifesto for activating the power of the Mother in the governance of the world.
The designers of the tarot would not have used that terminology, of course, but we may speculate that the sentiment was present in the context of a political or theological doctrine to which the designers subscribed.

Although the Empress Dowager was but a child of ten at this time she would receive her first impression of the foreigner, which was that he was a pirate who had come to carry away their wealth, to filch from them their land, and to overrun their country.
It is unfortunate that the Empress Dowager should have died before this reform had been carried to a successful culmination, but whatever may be the result of the movement the fact and the credit of its initiation will ever belong to her.
The Empress Dowager had set her heart upon this union, and she would not allow her plans to be frustrated, so an edict was issued that all people should remain within their homes on a certain night, for the bride was to be taken in her red chair from her father's home to the palace.

She is entirely natural in her abilities and at ease with every step of the process, seeming to enjoy seaming and Kitchener stitch as much as she does going to the yarn shop to choose yarn and notions for a new sweater.

 Teahouse Review: The Empress
Tea at the Empress really is best shared with family or friends, as Victoria is somewhat of a couples oriented town, but if you are alone as I was, then wait staff are extra attentive and will even take a brief moment or two to chat with you.
The Empress tea lobby does has a dress code which the staff claims over and over again is strictly enforced.
However, if you feel the Empress may be too 'high tone' for you, there are many places throughout Victoria that offer afternoon and "high" teas that are more relaxed in their dress code and are also considerably lower priced.
