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.

Another negative aspect of this card is failed ambitions, a craving for status and insecurity around a man of authority.
