For today I have drawn the Emperor from the Joie de Vivre tarot. This card is all about authority, leadership, structure and masculine, active energy.
Pauline’s story is as charming as ever:
“The confident and structured emperor, Eminence, has earned his wisdom through experience. His ram's antlers and warrior headgear are a reminder of his great leadership and authority. His dragon companions, Order and Conviction, stand by him in the coordination of systematic plans. In a position of strength, Eminence is clothed in sunlight gold, symbolic of growth and comfort. He's an ideal source of advice due to his scrutinizing ability to see through the most clever of disguises. He is defender of the vulnerable, and rejector of the lazy.”
This is a very apt card for me because yesterday we had to go to the vet with our dog Tara for an X ray of her longs. The results were not conclusive. The vet wasn't sure if it was a pneumonia or metastases from an unknown tumor. She took some blood to investigate it further and today we will know more. I have the strong feeling I have to be the one in charge and be strong for all of us because in worst case scenario decisions to be made. Although I have to say M behaved very imperial too while she was calming down our dog in the X ray room. Only after we came home she showed how she really felt. Also I see the vet in this card who was professional, thorough and wise enough to seek council with one of her colleagues.
I will keep you updated in the comments.
