Four: The Emperor of the Major Arcana

The Emperor is an assertive man with gray or white hair.  He is the father counterpart to the Empress. However, his age can trick and fool those who are gullible .  He is much stronger than he appears.  His stable throne is flanked by powerful rams.  He, himself, holds the ankh which is the symbol of life in Egyptian hieroglyphics.  The ankh gives him the energy to begin new projects.  The Emperor is unyielding.  His determination can dominate the globe.
Meanings: Leadership, domination, aggression, strength, authority, and paternity
Reverse: Immaturity, childlike emotions, serious injury, and loss of control.
