With its keywords being action, responsibility, competence and leadership, the Emperor is Aries’ Tarot card. As one of the most powerful cards in the deck, it is even more meaningful when an Aries draws it.
When it shows up for us in a spread, it’s a sign that we are strong and we are on our way to creating a solid foundation upon which we can build. When it comes to love and emotions, it means the deepening of a bond with growing ties and mutual respect.
When this card is drawn reversed, it means we are lacking the strength, willpower and decisiveness we need to create a life of achievements for ourselves. It is the Emperor calling you out so you can become the dictator of your own life, not other people’s lives.
