Key Words for Tarot Card - The Emperor Tarot
Tarot the emperor card in a reading surely stands for the authority of a man in your life. It is the male counterpart of the Empress major arcana card.
The emperor tarot stands for courage, growth, protection, will power and support. A major masculine Influence is the cause of your growth in the current situation. It may represent your husband, son, father or even a close friend with whom you share a strong bond of affinity. This person will surely help you find a way out of the current crisis be it personal or professional. This card will also stand for the strength you posses as a person and that you need to hold on to it to pass this test of time.
When the emperor card appears reversed in a reading it may indicate that a man of influence in your life is using bullying tactics to get things done from you. It is just the exploitation of the strength he has been blessed with to help you out of this situation.
Another negative aspect of this card can be considered to be failed aspirations and insecurity creeping in a man of authority.
