EXPERIENCING the Tarot EMPEROR
She strums her fingers and sends a quartet of Borealis strings out into the sky. A simple joy, but one that she happily gifts the people below. The lights serve as a reminder that there is a symphony of life around them… a bigger plan that is not always evident from every vantage point. She steps onto the landscape with all of the strength and harmonic leadership that a powerful Emperor Muse can bestow. A warm breeze warms their cheeks, and she leads them confidently and graciously… empowering each and every one of them to do their very best work. She is a guardian. A provider. A steward. And she watches the lands and the mountains with great fondness. Busily, they mill and move and dance and sing, and when she hears the earthly hum of the land below, she knows that they are happy. Her heart lights up, and the warm glow of her contented structure warms the tops of the mountains. The night sky fades to the most beautiful shades of indigo, and peace fills the valley as all are protected and fostered.
Notice the similarities between the Emperor’s strings of life that run through her third eye, and the ones below that are her footing on solid ground. Spend some time in quiet contemplation, and look into the mindset of an Emperor Muse, and see how the world is a reflection of the mind, the heart, and wishes worked for.
• What is the material that the Muse is using to strum her world to life? Does it have a consistency? A texture? A feeling?
• Step into the role of the Emperor and grade your own consistency and confidence as you grade yourself on a report card. What imaginary topics are you going to add to your report? And what are her remarks? Choose whatever you want to add. (Example: You get an A+ in tea pouring, because….) What are you awesome at? What needs work?
• Describe your home and your life as a wealthy Emperor Muse of the Mountain. What must haves are with you?
• What’s your texture, sweet creator? A beautiful alpine glow represents this Muse and is reflected in her shawl. What texture, pattern, image or thing would be the thing that others would say best represents you? Sketch it, cut it out, collage it or glue it. You can also replace ‘the thing’ with something that will better represent your future, if you’d like.
