You’ve been dealt ‘The Emperor’, but what can that possibly say about your future? As a symbol of domination, stability, and responsibility, this card can have positive or negative effects depending on how it's drawn out. He represents power and authority, and his cold and closed attitude contrasts with the sensuality of his feminine counterpart, The Empress.
This particular card is the father figure of the Tarot. As the Patriarch, he guides with wisdom and passes on his knowledge and experience to the youngest. In a draw, this card can evoke a power in the consultant's life, or evoke their difficulties in conforming to authority. It could mean a change of status towards a position of "power" is in progress. It's also a good indicator in a love draw because it can signal marriage.
Domination, Stability, Responsibility, Construction, Success
The Emperor embodies everything that comes with authority and omnipotence. When it comes to romance, you should expect this card to strengthen feelings and tighten the bond between you and the person that holds the keys to your heart. In the workplace, he is capable of stabilizing complex situations and demonstrating the essential role of authority.
In spite of its power and respect, this card toes the line between strong leader and tyrant. Badly oriented, you could be at risk of abusing your position of authority and letting your arrogance get the better of you.
