Family, Friends & Relationships:

It looks as though a kind, older man may be part of your scenario. This could be a work colleague, or your father or a father-type figure. Perhaps he will be interested in you romantically. If so, don’t rule him out, just because of his age. You may feel that this man rules with an iron fist and that he can be frustrating at times. Despite that he is trying to help you to see that rules have their place and their reasons, and you will come out all the better for it. Above all else, this man teaches – without even trying, perhaps – the benefits of structure and logic ruling over the emotions and lesser desires.

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.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Reading for children. Minors have special legal protections that need to be respected. In some cases, tarot may be regarded with suspicion because of the family’s cultural background or religious beliefs. In offering readings for children, the tarot consultant must be especially careful to respect the laws of the state and the rights of the parents. Sensitive issues such as bullying or abuse may come up in readings; the consultant should be prepared to take appropriate measures to protect the child. The choice of a tarot deck is also important. Some modern decks have adult themes, including frontal nudity or depictions of violence that may be inappropriate for children or objectionable to their parents. Several whimsical decks geared especially toward children are available, such as the Snowland Deck by Ron and Janet Boyer and the Halloween Tarot by Karin Lee and Kipling West.

Complete Book of Tarot: Hail to the chief! When upright, the Emperor represents a person of authority, will, planning, organization, analysis, strategic thinking and phallic masculinity. Lo and behold! The Emperor is the Father Archetype, the Lord and Master who knows how to get things done. A powerful leader, he takes charge, puts things in order, and protects those in his domain. He rules with his mind rather than with his heart. The Emperor appears in a reading to remind you to step up to the plate, be true to your principles, and use your power to structure your life to accomplish what must be done. You need to set clear goals and establish firm limits so that you can provide stability and get the job done.

Elements of the Psychic World: A well-known story involving alectromancy is that of the Roman emperor Valens, who used alectromancy to divine the name of his successor. He always got the name ‘Theod’, and so Valens ordered all those with the name Theodorus to be killed. Had he done his research properly, however, he might have been more successful: it was a man called Theodosius who actually succeeded him.

Elements of the Psychic World: According to tradition the I Ching dates back thousands of years. It was first devised from observing the natural world, the ebb and flow of is cycles. As it developed sages began to see it as a blueprint for understanding the universe. The two tri-grams which form the hexagrams were allegedly developed by Emperor Fu-his around 2852 BC. The solid lines represent yang – the male, creative, active energy; the broken lines represent yin – the female, passive, receptive energy. In c.1143 BC the trigrams were developed into 64 hexagrams by King Wen, founder of the Chou dynasty, and his son, the Duke of Chou, added commentary on the meaning of the symbols. In later years Lao-tzu (604-531 BC) drew upon the I Ching for inspiration when writing the Taoist text the Tao Te Ching. Confucius (551-479 BC) was also inspired by it and added ten commentaries, named the ‘Ten Wing’ appendices.
