Today’s card is IV from the Major Arcana, The Emperor. Power flows to the top. It’s our human nature to sort ourselves out into hierarchies, and this is encoded in our language and myths. We all recognize royalty.
The Emperor sits alone, he never sees the common people in his empire, he rules over kings from afar. Today’s lesson is that power is not just local, it’s global.
The Emperor is found in international politics and multinational corporations. We don’t elect him, and he does not like being disturbed. His number, 4, is stable and hard to shake.
The master’s tools will not take down the Empire. Sunlight, non-cooperation and alternative structures are the only way. He cannot be removed altogether, but he can be transformed.
