This week’s card is The Emperor. We can see what The Emperor stands for by not only the imagery on this card, but also in comparison to The Empress. While The Empress depicts the night, the moon, and feminine energy, The Emperor depicts a masculine vibe through the bright day and sun. He stands as the perfect counterpart to The Empress, balancing her energy.
Sometimes this card points to a paternal figure in our lives and sometimes it points to masculine energy. Representative of protection, stability and the father, The Emperor speaks of embracing the side of us that’s protective, stable, and decisive. He brings clarity of mind and this in turn, leads to decisions and forthright actions. While our feminine energy calls us to respond to our intuition and allow things to happen by naturally coming to us, our masculine energy calls us to take action and go get what we want.
Where have you been wafting on making crucial decisions? How can you employ a more straight-forward and focused approach in your life? In which areas could you push a little – to move things along rather than waiting for something to happen? Are there any masculine figures in your life that you can turn to for advice about any obstacles you may be facing?
Until next week, xoxo
