The Emperor

Key Meanings:

Key meanings: Leadership and authority. Energy, force and drive. Making your own rules and having others obeying them. Structure, logic and reason. Being your own boss.

I bring clarity and order and remind myself of my natural strength.

Why bash your head against a brick wall?

In this situation you seem to be paralysed, to be blocked. Come down from your throne and take part in life.

Or perhaps you are currently having a dispute with an authority – perhaps with your father? Regard this authority figure as a human being with all of their mistakes and weaknesses. Look and see just how lonely someone is when they are secluded on their “throne”, wearing their armour that has made them stiff and inflexible.

The flipside of the coin is that the Emperor brings order, so it may be the case that you need to bring order to something. If this is the case then you already know to where.

Interpretation as Daily Card

Today is a good day to take something in hand.

Meaning as a Relationship Card

Cater to your partner’s wishes. So come down off of your throne, even if you find this difficult.
