Good morning everyone. Today we a looking at the authoritative father figure - The Emperor No 4 in the Major Arcana.
The Emperor is the number 4 representing structure, order, authority and discipline. Whilst the Empress is the female archetype so the Emperor is the male equivalent. In terms of the Fool’s Journey this is the point that he encounters rules and the necessity for order. This is all about the confines and restrictions of living in a material, physical world. In a reading this card can come up indicating a promotion or opportunity to show your executive abilities of organisation and planning. This can also represent an older person, usually a man that you respect and look to for advice. He may be a senior management type who has a lot to do with the rules, regulations and running of a business or he could be a legal or financial advisor. They may be very experienced but also very stubborn in their viewpoints; wise but stubborn.
Keywords: authority, responsibility, mentor, promotion
If you draw The Emperor today then you will need to be organised and disciplined today. Perhaps you need to take the advice of someone older, wiser and more experienced in your field. Whatever the case hard work is required to plan and get through all that you have to do. You may need to be the authoritative figure as well. You may not like this role or following the rules but today it is a necessity.
🦉🦉🦉🙏 Have a happy and productive day!
