Brain, Back, Heart

Daily Draw: Druidcraft Tarot ~ Emperor/Lord

This leg crossed over knee is called the Jupiter position, the same stance in the Hanged Man is called the crane position. One of the reasons I don't pay tons of heed to symbology and go with what my uneducated eye sees, hears, and chooses to deal with.

I'm reminded by the fallow dry earth behind this leader that knowing and directing isn't enough, there also has to be nurturing action of some kind to achieve any results at all. Brain, back, and heart are all needed or the person in power is no more than a robot or dictator.

"There isn't any symbolism. The sea is the sea. The old man is an old man. The boy is a boy and the fish is a fish." ~ Ernest Hemingway 1899-1961


  1. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar...

  2. The Emperor is the skeleton, the spine, that keep us standing straight. The organs and tissues are the Empress, that keep us alive. Both are needed if our bodies are to be healthy. ;)

    The symbolism does not need to have fancy names or complex explanations... we just need to looking around us and into ourselves, that we will find how these cards connect to us!


I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
