Face Value

Daily Draw: Circle of Life Tarot ~ Emperor

This figure doesn't look very happy to be Emperor, the artist seems to have chosen to make him a younger version of the Devil card (below in Jan. 10th post). I infer that from the scepter, the colors, and the companions.

I'm reminded by this card that accepting information at face value can often shortchange us in many ways. Waiting for or digging for the real truth to become apparent is well worth the effort.

"Heroes and bogey men, values and dislikes, are first encountered and labeled in our early environment. In later years they change faces, places and maybe races, tactics, intensities and goals, but beneath those penetrable masks they wear forever the stocking-capped faces of childhood." ~ Maya Angelou 1928-

  1. Yes, he does look quite disgruntled. Do you think he is apt to abuse his authority?

    This Circle of Life deck is wondrous!
