For today I've drawn The Emperor from the Tarot of the Sidhe by Emily Carding. Just a fortnight ago he has appeared on my blog for the first time and now here he is again. I like this Emperor more than most of his counterparts. He is more vibrant, fiery and alive than the other rigid stern and arrogant emperors I've seen so far.
He is wearing a crown of flame and fire. In his cloak he has gathered the harvest of the cultivated fields. Seeds and sprouts are nice but not always enough. The land has to be farmed and cared for. Every creative impulse The Empress has brought forth is formed and structured by The Emperor. Without him there would be Chaos. This emperor feels more like an inspiration to work hard and to follow his instructions than a severe monarch who has to be obeyed in fear of punishment. I think this emperor could get a temper too but I guess he is mature enough to stay fair and just. And, he knows how to get things done.
So why again this card? Perhaps I still have to stand up more for what I want and how I want to run our household. Living with three queens in one castle isn't always easy. We want a lot of different things in even more different ways. We are full of good intentions but the outcome is sometimes not what I've hoped for.J
