Card 4-The Emperor

The Emperor represents leadership, power, and authority. He is Jehovah. He is the judge among men as well as spiritual. He is like Anubis handing down judgment after the soul is weighed by Ma'at. He is not without wisdom and compassion but he is a stern judge.

The Emperor is found between Chokmah (Wisdom) and Tipareth (Beauty) on the Tree of Life. He obtains all of his knowledge through wisdom, but it is tempered by beauty.

When the Emperor is drawn by itself it is telling us that there may be a situation that is coming down the road that will need dealing with by a sort of judge. This may be any authoritative figure in your life at the time, perhaps a boss, a teacher, a parent, a law enforcement/judge, or a mentor. This may not necessarily mean the person is male, but it does dictate that it is someone with that masculine energy or in that position of masculine energy. As with all tarot the meaning will depend greatly upon surrounding cards but one should pay close attention if the Emperor appears in your spread.
