Career, Work Or Retirement:
The reversed Emperor can indicate that you are not much in the mood for structured, formal work right now. However, obviously, you may not have a choice. Do the best you can to exhibit the structure and order that your job requires of you, but make sure to give yourself at least little mini-breaks to help yourself cope, if necessary.
Card Meanings: Rigidity, Excessively Controlling, Loss Of Business, Absentee Father, Abuse Of Power, Lack Of Control, Family Problems, Lack Of Ambition, Dependency, Stubbornness, Lack Of Discipline
The appearance of The Emperor shows us that domination of the mind over the heart is sometimes necessary even though it is not wanted. In fact he should be welcomed and that is what you must think about when he appears. When hard choices must be made it’s important to maintain your concentration and focus. The Emperor signals this but he also signals that now is a time you should find it easier to make hard choices. Enjoy the assertiveness and confidence that this self-control and focus brings. Forge ahead and do what you know is best. If you can master yourself then you should have little problem mastering most of the other obstacles that life throws at you.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Portable Magic: A useful extended ritual working for serious Tarot magicians is to evoke all thirty-six elementals of the number tarot cards on successive nights, one spirit on each night, and ask that spirit to tell you its true secret name. The title of the card is the public name of the elemental attached to it, but it also has a private name that you may use to summon it. This secret name can only be learned from the spirit itself, by asking the spirit to reveal it to you. The name will be specific to you another magician asking for the secret name would get another response. It is akin to a mantra passed from master to disciple, unique to each circumstance. Its revelation is both an expression of trust by the spirit, and a kind of compact between the spirit and the magician to whom the name is given.

Portable Magic: Taking up the pile of cards that contains the twelve trumps of the zodiac, Mary lays them around the altar on the table, beginning with the Emperor on Aries in the east, and proceeding clockwise. If the proportions of the cards she is using permit it, she lays out the circle so that the corners of the cards touch, and they are closely gathered around the altar. Only if the cards are uncommonly long and narrow may the circle be slightly small for the altar, and have to be expanded. She does not worry if the circle is a bit irregular, or if there are gaps between the cards. What is imperfect in the material world can be made perfect in the astral world.
