When you pull The Emperor, you’re either being told to take command (of your life/relationship/situation), or you’re being alerted that someone else has the power and is not going to budge one inch.  If this card pops up in answer to what you need to leave behind, you’re being told to ease up and stop trying to clamp down on a situation. It all depends on the question you’re asking.

This points us to Aries’ raw will, initiative and impatience with weakness. Aries is the first sign, and The Emperor wants to be Number 1. Not in a “look at me” kind of way…this guy could care less about admiration. He just wants to take charge, and there is no room for compromise. Sometimes his energy is needed, but sometimes it’s destructive.
