According to Many Schools of Thought

A. E. Waite's Secondary Meanings

The Empress, who is sometimes represented with full face, while her correspondence, the Emperor, is in profile. As there has been some tendency to ascribe a symbolical significance to this distinction, it seems desirable to say that it carries no inner meaning. The Empress has been connected with the ideas of universal fecundity and in a general sense with activity.

S. L. MacGregor Mathers's Divinatory Meanings

Upright

Action, Plan, Undertaking Movement in a matter, Initiative

Reversed

Inaction, Frittering away of power, Want of Concentration Vacillation.

Papus's Divinatory Meanings

Action. Initiative.
