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
