When the Emperor in reverse enters your tarot reading, it is recommended to stand still for a moment and take a look at your personal values and rediscover your ‘why’ in order to get back to a point of flow.

It may be time to tackle things from a different perspective this time. The systems that were created in the past may no longer be working at this current moment.

When it comes to love, the Emperor tarot card means ‘maybe’. As the Emperor often represents someone who has difficulty expressing his/her emotions and feelings, it can be quite hard to see through their tough exterior. The Emperor likely needs to warm up to the idea of a relationship. 

As the Emperor represents someone who is always looking for some sort of structure, suddenly being overwhelmed with feelings of love is often not something that fits their agenda.

For this reason, a person who represents the Emperor it most likely to hide their feelings for as long as they can.

As the Emperor doesn’t like to feel out of control at all, they will often try and focus on other things in their life such as their career to take their mind off of their feelings.

However, when the Emperor does warm up to the idea of allowing love enter their life, they are someone who brings a lot of stability and trust into the relationship.

They are someone to build on and who will want to take their responsibility and do their part.
