Daily Draw: True Love Tarot ~ Emperor
When Rob asks me to do something, sometimes to make him laugh I say "I leap to your command my Lord" and jump like a ballerina. He does laugh and says "you've never leaped to anyone's command in your life". He's right and I'm right. He is correct in that I bow to no one and follow my own path. But I'm right in that I do what Rob asks because I love and honor him. And because he always asks, not commands.
I'm reminded by this card that marriage is a partnership, signified by the half shield representing peaceful intent and weapons signifying the willingness to stand and fight when it is of importance.
"Love naturally reverses the idea of obedience, and causes the struggle between any two who truly love each other to be, not who shall command, but who shall yield." ~ Frances P. Cobbe 1822-1904
