The Emperor – Major Arcana IV
For this week, we will need to pay attention to who we are dealing with, especially when it comes to potentially life-changing decisions.
The Emperor in Tarot brings with him a spirit of authority, rules that do not bend, and judgements that can come down hard in some situations.
The Emperor In Tarot
This is the natural and spiritual mate to The Empress, and it is the Yang energy taken to the highest level. The Emperor represents power that does not fade, energy that never wanes, and a sense of superiority that is born of knowledge and leadership.
In short, this is one tough cookie to deal with under the best circumstances, and an impossible adversary to defeat in the worst.
The Emperor In Astrology
Relating to Fire Signs, The Emperor is widely associated with the sign of Aries, and many Tarot readers point to that sign in readings.
However, he is not always Aries, in my experience, and many times The Emperor can point to Scorpio, Capricorn or Leo. I have seen all of these associations in my client readings and they turned out to be accurate.
The Emperor In Numerology
The number four relates to something that is solid and well-built. The foundation runs deep, and what has been constructed is meant to last.
In a positive light this makes The Emperor a power that can be depended upon to never waiver and always protect and defend. In a negative light, it is an immovable object that stands in the way of any who oppose it and presents obstacles that can never be removed from our path.
