TAROT cards date back to the mid-15th century and are known for providing insight into the past, present or future.
Among those cards is The Emperor which is pictured sitting on a ram-adorned throne with an ankh scepter in his right hand and a globe in his left.
What does The Emperor tarot card mean?
The Emperor is often related to stability and represents security in life. It can also be a symbol of hard work, discipline and self control.
When drawn, it often means that you are on top of things in your life and have everything under control.
Some commonly associated words and phrases include:
- Father figure
- Law and order
What does The Emperor card mean reversed?
Like all tarot cards, they mean something different when drawn reversed and The Emperor is not different.
When drawn reversed, Biddy Tarot reports that The Emperor card insinuates that there is an over-use and abuse of authoritative power.
This might comes from another person, a boss, a father figure or a partner.
The card sometimes means that you might need to stand up to authority to get your life back on track.
When reversed Biddy Tarrot says that it is important to “pay attention to your commitment to your goals and your self-discipline to get the job done.”
Some commonly associated words and phrases with the reversed card include:
- Control freak
- Lack of discipline
- Loss of authority
- Manipulative friends
What is the purpose of Tarot cards?
Tarot cards are a form of Cartomancy, which is fortune-telling or divination using a deck of cards.
The purpose of the cards are to gain insight into ones life and many use them in times of uncertainty.
While not everyone believes in their usage, those who do use them as a way to face their reality and try and make sense of certain situations.
“Regardless of common threads, there’s always a lot to talk about,” writer and tarot reader Liz Worth wrote in an op-ed.
“I ask what feels most pressing to you, to start with. ‘Love,’ you say. Specifically, you want to know how to find it, and keep it once you do. Next, you want to know about your career: That dream job you worked so hard for is burning you out. You’re wondering: Is there something else out there for you – something better, maybe?”
