The Emperor is a sign of achievement and honour and in many cases can represent a stong male influence such as a father, husband/partner or man of significance in your life, or person of authority such as a boss.
When he appears in a reading he can suggest that a man of authority or significance as outlined above will stand by you and support you, in personal as well as business matters.
When The Emperor falls in position in a reading that refers to you he suggests that you will be able to influence people and have a great sense of your own authority.
Negatively The Emperor can mean that either you or a man of influence in your life is using bullying tactics and being overbearing, an abuse of power.
Another negative aspect of this card is failed ambitions, a craving for status and insecurity around a man of authority.
