Symbolism

Here we have the archetypal male energy to the card right before it, The Empress. The Emperor is also associated with the zodiac sign, Aries, making the Emperor a solid leader in any Tarot reading. This is the male counterpart to the Empress, sitting on his throne of royalty and luxury. He embodies the spirit of Aries, is a natural-born leader, and has an air of authority around him, like an authority figure such as the ultimate Emperor. He may be a boss or a law enforcement figure in your life or a lawyer, mayor, or President. This card sometimes symbolizes a father figure but also represents the ultimate father figure, Jupiter, the god of all gods. He could be an administrator or any number of lead managerial positions. He is a warm one, though, and exercises sound judgment with a father’s love. He is older and thus wiser with his years and imparts wisdom and direction in a stable and structured way in your life. He’s a root you can count on!
