The Emperor upright tarot card means that we must represent ourselves as the authority figure in everyday life. Essentially, no longer can we merely walk around as a follower in our craft.
If you have been harnessing skills for a long time, then now is the time to rise and establish yourself as the go-to person.
The Emperor Tarot Upright
Often we want to hide ourselves in the corner. Perhaps there are beliefs that aren’t serving us, such as the fear of being judged or simply not being good enough. Sometimes we even fear ridicule.
With the knowledge we individually posess, all of us have skills, knowledge and know-how to accomplish great things. We have figured out the process forward to rise to new heights.
Now isn’t the time to run, hide and find cover. Instead, we need to stand strong. We know what we believe in and we need to stop believing in negative self-talk which stops us from being in a place of true authority.
The Emperor Upright is a ‘Yes’ tarot card and we’ve used the Rider Waite decks to conduct this psychic reading. We see the Emperor in his fatherly state of being sitting strong in his large throne.
This man clearly has power and knows his craft very well. It’s likely to have been thousands of hours of posessing knowledge and taking action which has lead to this very point in his life.
The world is truly in his hands and the aakh represents the knowledge that he has acquired and continues to acquire. He does this from a place of power which is symbolized through the red robe.
Indeed he’s passionate about what he knows and the position he holds, but also this place of authority is done on purpose. We can see that further noted through his wearing of a crown.
Behind him are the mountains which shows the ardous journey that he has walked in the past. During such times, he has acquired monumental knowledge which will make the lives of future adventurers much easier.
Certainly The Emperor Upright is a hard individual and the type that isn’t easily swayed. With armour behind his clothing and having built himself a solid foundation, potential enemies will certainly have their work cut out.
At this time of his life, there is much more resistance to make changes. He has been through a lot and desires to pass on his knowledge and wisdom to those who are ready to rise.
Your own authority
It’s time to establish your own authority. What is something that you are truly passionate about? It can be simply as gardening or as complex as the study of chi energy through the human body.
In the world today, we have massive opportunities where our passions can lead to trust and authority. People desire to learn about new topics and ideas, and our wisdom needs to be passed forward to the world.
We always outgrow our mentors. Perhaps they have taught us and now it’s up to us to do the teaching. We don’t need permission nor do we need qualitifications. We simply need passion, process and execution to get exponential results.
It’s time to be the powerful leader in your space. Create a systematic plan on how to get there and continue striving forward as a guide for others. Trust us – many need you during these times.
Indeed, your knowledge is the gift that the world has been waiting for. Don’t fear copycats. They can’t replicate your true experience and will soon be spotted. Instead, simply be you and show others what you have created.
It’s time to claim your authority in your space of wisdom. Are you an intuitive healer? Mother who figured out how to manage work and home life, or someone who has picked up a new skill late in life? Whatever it is – it’s time to OWN it.
Never before have we been able to show authority on a global scale where skills can be taught to anyone of any age. Indeed it’s an equal playing field where everyone can have a fair go.
If you’re ready to step on to the stage, then others are ready to listen to your message.
