The Emperor

The Emperor appears to remind you of the power that resides within. This card brings with it a sense of structure, a solid foundation, and clear focus.

The Emperor requires that you assert yourself with mindfulness, knowledge, and confidence.

You are moving into a stage of action, power, and goals realized. This card speaks of strong family alliances, security, and material success.

The Emperor calls on wisdom and serenity, and tempers kindness in all he does. And all he does, he does with an air of self-worth, confidence, and a knowledge that he is connected to The Divine. All actions in alignment with the Emperor move towards the greatest good for all. You are The Emperor; stand tall, be clear, and take action!

Every moment in your life has made you what you are today! The Emperor draws on the wisdom and knowledge of the past, without holding attachment to what was, in order to create the present exactly as he wishes. You have reached such a place in your life and the struggle is ending, if not already over. You have worked hard to create the life you want, and you are now seeing the fruit of your actions.

This card reminds you to build solid foundations, get grounded and rooted - right here and right now! Use your power for the greatest good, and use it wisely. You are now the ruler of your universe. Treat others as you want to be treated, tend to what needs tending and stay in the rhythm of life.

You are feeling your strength and power; try not to let it go to your head. Stay focused on your path and remember what makes you who you are.

The Emperor also reminds you to use your voice, to not be afraid of conflict. Instead, stand up for what you believe, not in order to persuade others to be like you, but to let them know who you are and what you want to create. Do this with kindness and love, for it will take you further on your path than anger and aggression. You have within you the power to make it happen; remember this and remind yourself often. What you think you are is what you become. Who do you want to be?

If your question today involves a relationship, The Emperor asks that you be clear in who you are, to take action for what you want, and never settle for anything less than true love, respect, and passion. True love comes to us when we truly love ourselves. The Emperor not only loves and honors himself, but he treats all those around him with the same love and respect. Love yourself first and open yourself up to love. Your inner Emperor will tell you when love is right and when it is time to move on.

If your question regards your career, The Emperor speaks to stepping up and into your highest self, to take action, and reach for your dreams - you have the power to move mountains, remember? You can do anything you want, you need only believe in yourself and let the rest fall into place. The Emperor always knows the next right action, even if it is to step back, be still, and meditate until the answers come to surface. Trust in your inner Emperor!

We always get what we need when we need it. I know I have today! I would love to know what you think: your experiences, questions, and comments. Please share and connect with me anytime. I am sending you much love and light! May your path be filled with happiness and joy and may all of life come to you with ease, joy, and grace!

Today's Meditation:

Find a sweet space, set a timer for 10-20 minutes, invite stillness in. Relax your entire body, bring attention into your breath and the vibration of your heart. Allow yourself to be still. Silently to yourself or out loud repeat the words:"I trust in my soul and in my path."

When the timer goes off, release your mantra and just be still for as long as you can. Enjoy the way you feel.
