Emperor in Tarot

The Emperor In Tarot

The Emperor in tarotThe weekly reading has revealed that the Emperor in tarot has a major significance for us for the coming week beginning the 28th of January. The Emperor tarot card meaning relates to government organisations, male authority, male leadership, paternal inclinations and establishment. When this archetype is being expressed in the negative it can signify domination and excessive control, inflexibility and lack of discipline. This post will look at world events relating to this card, as well as what it means for us on a more personal level. Feel free to watch video below or keep reading underneath the video.

Numerology of The Emperor Card

This week is also governed by the master numbers 22 in numerology, where these two numbers are the unpinning of the building blocks of the Emperor in tarot.

Let’s look at the math breakdown of the dates in question:

Days of the week: 28+29+30+31+1+2+3=16 which breaks down to 7.

Then we take the months January (1) and February (2), because we are crossing over from one month to the next during the week. Then we consider the year: 2019.

So we get:

7+1+2+2+0+1+9=22 (a significant master number in numerology) which is further reduced to 4, which gives us our Emperor card.

Emperor Tarot Card and the week ahead

AsI stated in my 2019 world predictions, the dominant archetype of the year is The Empress. This week duality will be highlighted as the Emperor is the male counterpart of the Empress in tarot. By duality, I mean we may likely see the opposite of everything the Empress represents. The Emperor is connected to the planet Mars (the planet of war) and the astrological sign of Aries. I find it ironic that the US government shutdown is one of the top news stories of late which could not be a better real life Emperor tarot card example of a government body executing excessive control and displaying immense inflexibility over building the symbolic structure of ‘The Great Wall Of Trump’. I am not sure that good will come out of this. Taking into consideration duality once more, and the symbolism of male and female leadership with the Empress and the Emperor, all you have to consider is the stronghold between Trump and Nancy Pelosi. How this will resolve? Who knows…..But they are a prime example of male and female leadership in complete duality and division and going head-to-head.

When will the US government shut down end?

I feel that the conclusion of this government shutdown will send ripples across the US and possibility the world at large. Consider the master number 22 is also symbolic of The World tarot card, as it is the 22nd card in the major arcana deck in tarot. Things are not always what they appear and I feel this issue is distracting us from something else that ‘the powers that be’ don’t want us looking at. I will take a risk in predicting that the government shutdown will end on the 7th of February 2019. If I am correct about this date, I will go into more details about how I came to this conclusion in another post. But for now, I will just float it.

UPDATE: 26th Jan-Well, turns out my prediction was incorrect. As I awoke this morning the headlines read ‘Trump surrenders to Democrats, ends government shutdown’. He is threatening to shut it down again on the 15th of Feb. I guess we’ll watch this space…

What does the Emperor card mean for us individually?

This week is a week to make sure you take care of elements of your life that may be lacking discipline and focus. It is a week to focus on the building blocks of your life and how you lay down your plans brick by brick. It is also a week to consider where in your life is feeling shaky and what you can do to build more foundation and security. After the fresh inspiration and new beginnings of last week, this weeks focus is around how you can lay down the plans to make it happen and all the practical steps involved. Take some time to consider the following questions:

  • How can I feel more secure inwardly and outwardly?
  • What actions and mindsets can I adopt to allow for stronger foundations in my life?
  • Where might I be lacking discipline which is getting in the way of creating a life that I like?
  • What are my feelings around authority figures? Do I feel like I am in control, or them?
  • Am I able to stay grounded around authority figures and still maintain my own authority?
  • Do I feel I have authority generally speaking? Do I feel secure in it?
  • What can I do to expand my sense of authority?

  1. How super interesting that you took your weekly tarot reading to talk about the government shutdown.  I’m anxious to see if your February 7th prediction comes true.  I really hope they resolve the issue quickly.  I will definitely take time to take a look at my own life as well, and I love your site.

    1. Thanks Babsie! Yes I am eager to see if my prediction will be right and if so I will be doing an extensive post on how I drew the conclusion. Just a method I am toying with at the moment. Time will tell!

  2. This week of Emperor in Tarot readings will have significant change in Government, especially the lack of discipline.

    Does that mean there will be total discipline and corruption free US government?

    According to the prediction of the numeric card of Emperor Tarot, does that means “THE WALL OF TRUMP” won’t come to life?

    So, about what Emperor Tarot meant for individual is a proper and normal thing every human who is aspiring to attain greater things in life must put into cognizance, I totally agree with that

    1. Corruption free? Highly unlikely! I am just highlighting some of the deeper symbology of current events and people  of the world more than I am trying to make predictions (although, I await with baited breath as to whether my prediction about the end of the shut down will be correct…)

      In terms of of the more personal meaning of the Emperor tarot card-yes, it is a fantastic card to embrace the meaning of when trying to accomplish big things. Each of these cards have a lot of archetypes and history behind them.

    Hello Liz,

    Thank you for this enlightening tarot reading for the week. I think the Emperor card is very appropriate for the Trump wall fiasco as well as his entire tenure in office. The guy is trying to use the taxpayers money to complete a false promise that he made during his campaign to build the wall in which Mexico would help pay. 

    I have no doubt that there are other government things in play here. It feels like a real life “House of Cards” in which there are shady deals happening behind the scenes that don’t get talked about. You’ve revealed some very interesting numbers and conclusions that I never would have thought of. I appreciate and find very interesting your experience in this area. And the video was awesome as I don’t normally get a tarot reading. 

    I am interested to find out more about how the tarot cards work and their significance to the numbers and events in our lives. I’m not very educated in this field of knowledge, so the videos are very helpful and show that you really know what you are talking about. Thank you for sharing this reading.

  4. Interesting post. I like your prediction regarding the close of US government shutdown on Feb 7th and look forward to reading your logic behind it if this happens. 

    Like you mentioned, I will be introspecting on the actions to be taken next week to streamline my focus and be disciplined towards activities that I have been procrastinating eg. writing blogs:) Thanks for suggesting to look closely on what is lacking and how to expand my sense of authority in personal and professional life.

  5. Rosie the Roadie

    I must admit that I personally know nothing about Tarot card readings.  Having said that it is really amazing when someone like yourself is able to read and understand the complex meanings.  I take my hat off to you.

    I do hope, for the sake of the workers who are not getting paid, that the Government shut-down doesn’t drag on till the 7th of Feb but will be waiting with bated breath to see how your prediction comes out.

    1. Hey Rosie-yes I hope it ends as soon as possible. I can’t believe there are people who are simply not getting paid despite the fact they have given their service to the government which can often involve a lot of sacrifice on their part and their families. To not be paid for all this time is a punch in the face.
