After the production of the Empress comes the construction of the Emperor. This is the doer, a leader, the architect, a builder, someone who is actively implementing and constructing something with great authority and leadership. This represents the traditional Father Figure – masculinity. This is someone who’s extremely stable, draped with power, draped with responsibility. This also represents driving ambition mind over matter – this can indicate issues of law or an encounter with the law, establishing foundations for now and future generations.

Overall, this is a strong person who relies on their judgment, not easily swayed or influenced. This is creating and protecting a group, person or organization. This represents building, creating laws and strong foundations. There is great gravitas to this card, great vision and again just inherent authority and leadership.

Lead – do not shy away from taking power, wielding power with thoughtfulness and wisdom. Tap into your strength structures and processes in your life and the lives of others or your organization.

This can indicate difficulty following through with the responsibilities of leadership or authority and can indicate immaturity, feeling the burden of responsibility. There might be someone in your life who is not self-sufficient and they could be evolving into a great burden for you. This can represent misdirected or abuses of power either by you or one close to you. This can indicate proceeding down the wrong path, a bad teacher or an unfair boss.

You or someone else cannot hear wise counsel, toxic masculinity is in play and someone is misdirecting their power. This can simply mean that you are unable at this time to implement your plan. You don’t have the resources or the position of authority to implement your plan.

 

The best course of action with the Emperor

First, understand you might not have the authority or power to proceed on your desired course, it might be time to step back and withdraw and regroup and this can be a call to relinquish power or authority to another. Do not assume any more responsibilities because you might already have too much. If this represents another person in your life this can be a call to be careful, to look at their intentions, the intentions might not be for good or it could just be a person in your life with power and authority is in difficulty. There is one of their best course of action with this and you need to be prudent – this might be calling for you to be in a sense the bad guy sometimes to survive a situation or to break out of one you have to make the really tough call and be the bad guy. If you feel that this is your best course of action, make sure you really examine your motivations and proceed with caution.
