The Patriarch. The Father. The Authority.
On the positive side, the Emperor is your inner authority, your mature masculinity and your disciplined, controlled self. He is able to lead you steadily to achieve your goals.
However this part of ourselves (and of society) has often becomes toxic. So it’s important when drawing the Emperor to examine if you are trying to control or assert authority over another, or if you are perhaps on the receiving end of this treatment and experiencing some kind of repression.
Therefore, how can you stand with sovereignty and be the master of your own destiny?
