Emperor -- Major Arcana

Card in the picture is Emperor and taken for the pack of Rider Waite Tarot Cards. This card bears the number 4.
During its journey, fool first met the magician which gave him tools and thus options to choose from. High Priestess helped him on how to decide using the knowledge. Empress helped him in developing his power further. Now fool meets the emperor and here he will take lessons of managaing his power with the help of emperor.

Emperor is seated on a large stone throne and is obeyed by everyone. He holds the authority and power to run the empire in an organized way. Here fool is amazed by the control emperor holds over the empire. He learns from the emperor that strong will and solid foundation of laws and order is required. To control one need to be alert, brave and aggresive. Here, Fool learns on how to lead and direct, rather than be led.

When this card comes up in a reading, it symbolises control, control of everything around you. Alternatively, it could symbolise a strong leader kind of presence in your life. It could be your father, employer, husband, teacher, etc.
