The Emperor is the husband of the Empress, the representative of the male symbol who has the power to dominate the material world. The Emperor, as the head of a country, sits confidently on his throne, wearing a crown, a red robe and boots, which is a symbol of strict discipline. In his left hand he holds a crystal ball, a symbol of strict order and discipline, while in his right hand he holds an ancient Egyptian cross, a symbol of life and power. On the throne are four reliefs of the ram’s heads, emphasizing the astrological sign corresponding to the Emperor’s card – Aries (Mars). As the first one of the zodiac, the Aries also symbolizes courage, aggression, ambition and self-confidence, which coincides with the dominant red color of the whole card. The mountains in the background foreshadow the risks behind the power, which inevitably makes the audience more worried than the richness in the Empress’s card.
The Emperor’s card represents moral precepts and prohibitions with supreme power. The meaning of this card focuses on order, norms and stability of the situation. Precisely because of all this rationality and authority, he must hide his personal feelings. At the same time, this card has a profound metaphor about being in a high position of power, that is, loneliness at the top.
The Emperor’s card also represents a man of integrity, fairness and practicality. If he gives you advice, his advice comes from his own personal experience. He tends to be somewhat arbitrary, but when he makes a promise, he is usually trustworthy. And when you make a promise, he will expect you to carry it out, and if you fail to do so, he will not give you a second chance.
