The meaning of each tarot card - The Emperor

Tarot card number 4 in the deck is the grand Emperor. This is a wonderful card that speaks of the power of wisdom and experience gained through patience. When you see this card come up in your tarot readings, it's time to consider whether you are rushing the matter or if you are not doing enough to make things happen for yourself. For me personally, I see it as my cue to break the situation down, to consider how I can overcome the problem by taking it one step at a time and making it less overwhelming. 

The main reason that this card can be unpopular in readings is that it's a little anti-emotions. Nothing wrong with following your feelings of course, but with the Emperor, it's all about the thinking! It can be tough to do but your rewards will be a clear head and, to the others involved, an appearance of calm and dignity. 

So when this card comes up, slow down and have a good old think about the whole situation and the way you are dealing with things. Don't forget, the tortoise beat the hare to the finish!
