The Emperor ~ How Do You Wield Your Power?
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Emperor, representing: Power, authority figures and personal sovereignty. “We should conduct our lives as though we were kings and queens with all eternity before us.” (Eliphas Levi) The Emperor indicates an auspicious moment, a time where we become symbolic kings, the masters of our destinies. The Emperor wears a heavy crown, representing authority. Authority is a divine right; how we choose to wield it is the Emperor’s journey.
As their best, The Emperor is a powerful ruler, a leader who acts with the greater good of the kingdom in mind. When out of balance, he becomes domineering, controlling and authoritarian—at tyrant. The Emperor asks you to consider what type of leader and role model you want to be. True authority requires discipline, assertiveness, patience and teamwork. By adhering to these qualities you become worth of wearing the Emperor’s crown.
How you conduct yourself now is of great importance; others are looking to you for leadership. Act with integrity towards yourself and others. Issues may arise with authority figures in your life. A circumstance where you fell someone is trying to dominate you.
This is not a time for battle. Do not act impetuously. Take a step back, center yourself, and remember, if you are truly powerful, no one can take that away from you.
New enterprises in business thrive, as you are full of energy to create your kingdom. You are laying important foundations for the future. Pay careful attention to follow-through.
Wishing you an empowered week!
