POSITION 1 – PAST
This position represents the past where the situation originated.
THE EMPEROR – The Emperor stands for worldly success. When he turns up in your spread it shows that you have control of the situation and you are in charge.
Like a benign father the Emperor likes to control, but in a loving caring way.
In a love reading the Emperor can indicate a very significant man in your life. We’ve gone beyond first romance and this person is a part of your everyday life, perhaps someone you will marry and build a family together. This is someone who can be a little dominant at times but also gives you love, support and security. It can show that you are attracted to strong, dynamic individuals who have made a success in the material world.
In a business reading, you’re flying high. You’re a success, you’ve made it. Don’t be egotistical and sit on your laurels though. Business Emperors have to work very hard to keep their empire together. In a career reading the help and assistance of your boss will be invaluable in furthering your career. You may even be promoted to a position of greater authority yourself – use this authority wisely.
POSITION 2 – PRESENT
The present situation.
JUDGEMENT – Life changing experiences. This can come in many ways. Perhaps something or someone has been a catalyst for your change, they may have provoked new levels of thought or feeling, made you rethink old and outdated views and opinions or maybe circumstances no longer permit old attitudes and habits.
It could be that you feel reborn or that you have been given a new lease of life. You may have experienced a life changing experience that has forced you to rethink everything and compensate for past mistakes. Much like the character of Scrooge in Dickens ‘A Christmas Carol’.
This is a time to start anew, forget outdated regimes and rules and create an atmosphere that improves life for all of those concerned.
POSITION 3 – FUTURE
The most likely outcome for the near future.
THE HANGED MAN – Sometimes when we don’t have a clue what to do for the best we simply do nothing. You may feel full of self pity, restricted by life’s limitations, real or imagined; feel that your life is going nowhere or that your options are limited.
Perhaps you feel that you have sacrificed your hopes and dreams or cannot choose which path to take. Duty or other commitments may prevent you from pursuing dreams, or you may feel like your life has been suspended in some way. Perhaps you feel as if you are waiting for things which may be out of your control to change so that your life may move along once again.
