22days to Readers Studio: Day 12, The Emperor

The Emperor card! King of Kings and master of the world; his is the demesne over the four kingdoms of the minor arcana: Swords/Air, Cups/Water, Pentacles/Earth and Wands/Fire. The four minor Kings owe the Emperor their fealty and he can call upon them to serve his needs. The Emperor is the consummate synthesist and project manager; his goals are beyond those of mere ‘kings.’ His vision extends far beyond their personal domains.

The Emperor is here to remind me today that it’s time to look at all elements of the situation. How do I combine these disparate aspects of my life into a cohesive and cogent whole? How do I achieve a life that is more than the sum of its elemental parts? How do I command and lead those that follow to success and victory? The Emperor is the role model, the mentor and the example to follow.

Tomorrow’s card: The Empress. No really, they showed up one after the other!
