T

he Emperor is next up in our  Ask and Answer Tarot Meanings series, the companion to my e-course on Tarot, 20 Question Tarot.

Remember: In the Ask and Answer Tarot series I am going to give you 6 questions that each Tarot card inspires you, the reader, to ask either yourself or the person you are reading for and 2 questions that will help you get to know the card a little bit better.

 

The Emperor

Questions for the Emperor:

These two questions will help you get to know the Emperor a little bit better:

1.) What does the Emperor help you do for other people?

2.) The Emperor is clothed in rich red and purple robes, marking out his station as a king and ruler. What is the relationship between visibility and authority?

 

Questions from the Upright Emperor:

When the Emperor card appears upright in a reading, these three questions will help you reveal its message.

1.) What skills have you mastered?

2.) Where in your life are you wielding power and authority wisely?

3.) What do you do to bless other people?

 

Questions from the Reversed Emperor:

When the Emperor card appears reverse in a reading, these three questions will help you navigate its advice.

1.) Where is power and/or authority thwarting or blocking you?

2.) Where are you too controlling or rigid?

3.) Are you willing to step aside and let others learn and try?
