The Successful Man – The Emperor
What Does The Emperor Tarot Card Mean? We cover this and another question… What does the Emperor wear under his red robes?
Remember the under vestment of the Magician being the white of pure intention, and the red cape that he could disrobe? The mature Emperor does not display a white undergarment of innocence and purity. He has fully developed powers of the mind and body displayed through the white of his beard and hair.

Therefore, what does the Emperor wear under his fiery red robes? The answer is a suit of silver armour, which indicates his status in the material world. Silver is a sleek vibrant shade of grey. The important aspect of this silver underneath the red is the fact that silver metal is cool! The Emperor has a serene composure, dignity and assurance … you could say he is unperturbed.
Silver does not have the warmth of gold. The opulence of gold stands out as regal and rich through the orb and sceptre.
The golden orb and sceptre symbolise a monarch or ruler. There are two interpretations for the sceptre, the first being the Egyptian ankh bringing life, health and good fortune, and the second being a mathematician’s T-square.
The solid grey throne yells out loud, “I have worked hard and long to build my empire, and now I have rule over my earthly domain.”
The cascading blue water that travelled through the garden of the Empress with its gentle communication now struggles to trickle past the Emperor. This man is stern and solid … no room for all that airy-fairy stuff. He thinks logically unlike the feminine Empress and the High Priestess.
We have spoken little about the prominent colours of the Emperor, which are red and orange. Red as you know is related to passion, fire energy and the base chakra … the key ingredients for money matters and financial strength.
Fire red is associated to Aries, the first of the astrology sun signs. Aries people make things happen, even if they tread on your toes to do it.
Orange is a blend of yellow and red, which is related to the sacral chakra and gut feeling. The Emperor may be logical, but he also has good animal instinct and confidence in his decisions.
(This is not the feminine intuitive of the sub-conscious, but rather the masculine knowing of the conscious.)
