He is a man of power who tries to bring balance and order to his business activities. He is highly focussed on building a business or empire and seeing to it that things run like clockwork. He may be the director of CEO or General Manager of a large corporation. His role there is of great importance as he is a man who knows what he is doing. He is exceptionally business minded and goal orientated.
He always achieves what he sets out to do. He is fixed in his opinions and refuses to budge once he has made up his mind. He is steadfast and loyal. He does not like deceit in any form. He has high principles and is considered a man of integrity by his employees and friends.
The Emperor can be a formidable opponent as he fights to the death. Has courage and tenacity and little beats him down. He is a man who needs financial security and will work long and hard if necessary to achieve this. His focus on business matters is just about all consuming for him, although he does like family life and will generally seek a wife to stand by his side.
He understands the need for close family bonding and love. He makes a good husband and father to his children. He would instil respect in his children and hep them to understand why he is not always there at home. He expects that his wife will provide his needs and also most of the needs of their children.
His goal is to maintain financial security and independence and he insists on instilling these qualities in his children. He is not into frivolity or wasting time, though he does occasionally find some peace in solitude, when he can contemplate the meaning of his life. Very little ruffles the Emperor's feathers. He is stable, secure and confident in his approach to life.
If you are a young man and this card appears, it could be showing you where you will be in 10 or 20 years from now. The card is encouraging you to seek your financial independence and follow your dreams. This card, if not you, could represent your father or your boss or other influential male in your life.
If you are a female, this too could be your father or your boss, or your future partner in life. You can expect that if he becomes your friend and then your lover, he will eventually be your husband or partner for life.
If you are a male and over 40, this card may very well represent yourself and it is time to acknowledge where you are on your life's path and perhaps now take time out to relax a little, maybe take the family on an extended overseas holiday and just unwind for awhile. The world won't stop turning if you take leave from your working responsibilities and spend some time with your loved ones, who probably would really appreciate being around you at this time.
