The Fool Meets The Emperor
After meeting his “archetypal” mother, The Fool continues his journey and meets his “archetypal” father.
He sits on a throne decorated with ram heads. He isn’t dressed in finery at all, but armor. Aries is his sign and he has drive, intensity, and is head strong and even combative. You don’t mess with this dude. He has given up comfort for discipline sitting on that throne of stone. The throne he sits upon is rigid. Sturdy. It’s not moving.
You could say he represents supreme leadership. Back in the day, emperors ruled over kings and their kingdoms, but in today’s world, you could equate him to a mob boss, or even the high powered CEO.
He is THE MAN.
He’s lived long, look at that white beard. He embodies wisdom, the kind that comes only from experience. He has fought to stay around and has the type of presence we look for in a leader. He’s cool and calm …let’s call him Big Daddy.
In his hand he holds a scepter, adorned with not just any old symbol, it’s the Egyptian ankh. This is the symbol of eternal life, but also one of gods and pharaohs.
See his other hand?
He’s got the world in it. He owns it.
He is here to tell The Fool to meet any challenge head on, because it’s most likely a test of strength and may reveal his weaknesses. Get ready. Be prepared and do the thing. No matter what, things change.
His message to The Fool today is:
Although ever changing and growing, you control your own destiny. Now get ya some.
Tough love. Discipline. Control. It’s time to step out into the world and live, learn and grow my little dude.
