The Emperor

Arthur

No! No!   No!

Not. Arthur Garfunkel. 

Fer tha luvva

Fortune Cookie:  Use your wonderful intellect very well today, you silly bugger. That’s why you have it.  And accept a leadership position that is unexpectedly thrust upon you.

Really, Neal… Again with the silly Arthur schtick.  Really?   I don’t  believe it.  Jeeeeez…

Ahem. 

Hmmm….

Las saw this guy in August. He’s worth a good read, especially on a Sunday.  So, then:   

This is a powerful, positive card [and I know bunches of folk who can use one at the moment], that encourages us to see the goodness flowing to us and our world.  Even more, it asks that we believe in that and really be open to it.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, writes that this card betokens

wisdom and power,

conquest and conviction,

courage and ambition

balanced with

reason and fair play.

That would be nice, for a change.

It can also herald a caring person with many responsibilities, so have an eye out for someone like that.  [If it looks like me in your mind’s eye, you’re surely daft.]

I perceive The Emperor to be a card of intellect well used and accomplishment attained.

For some clients, I find that it indicates they may be thrust into a new position of power or leadership, even if they have not sought it. Sometimes especially if they have not sought it. When that is the case, I ask that they accept the new responsibilities (and the attendant opportunities) graciously.  I say something like:

“If the Universe didn’t think you were ready for this, IT wouldn’t have put you in a position to receive it.  So go for it and be brilliant about it! You can be, so don’t get in your won way!!!!!”

Be open to the helpful counsel of others [especially me], so that a greater wisdom can be attained and acted on [maybe it’s not me after all].

This is a card of

progress and security. 

So believe in that – own that − as a true, evident and inevitable probability.

Use your wonderful intellect very well today; that’s why you have it.  Seek wisdom through the counsel of others who truly have something helpful to offer.  Know that, through such actions, progress and security can be yours.

Bright blissings!
