The Emperor

The Emperor

Astrological Counterpart: Aries ruled by Mars, the initiator, the masculine archetype;
Mythological Correspondent: the Heavenly Father, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob;
Cabalistic Counterpart: He;
I Ching Correspondent: 7 Shih/The Army.

The Emperor complements the Empress. He stands for power and authority. What differentiates these two characters is his down-to-earth personality. He is depicted as sitting on a throne, a metaphor for his divine right to rule and command. However, the orange background and his red garments symbolize vitality and good health. This card also signifies that sometimes you should let your mind rule over your heart. It can also indicate that your leadership ability will soon be put to the test. Either that or you're about to meet a powerful authority figure you have a lot to learn from.

Work: Things should be going well at work and your achievements aren't likely to go unnoticed. Be organized, determined and prioritize your assignments. If you're looking for a job, think about the reasons why a potential employer should hire you instead of anyone else.

Love: If you're single, you're likely to meet an older special someone. Or maybe s/he is well-structured and hard-working. There may not be fireworks at the beginning but s/he'll definitely start to grow on you sooner or later. S/He is good relationship material, so give it your best shot.
