In the last segment, we went into depth on the rich, lush imagery of card #3 The Empress. In this video, we’ll discuss her companion and polar opposite, The Emperor. While these two images may seem as different as day and night, when we read into the symbolism of the four elements, we discover that they actually compliment one another perfectly!
Here are the two cards side by side. Notice the Venus symbol on her throne, while his throne depicts the ram, the symbol for Aries in the Zodiac, which is ruled by Mars. In this video, we’ll toss around some ideas about how these cards allude to the whole “men are from Mars, women are from Venus” thing, as well as look into how earth, air, fire, and water play off of each other in this duo. Enjoy!
