Mastery / Control

The Emperor

male principle

All that the male body and psyche entail: initiative, intellectuality, conquering, mastery, yang, action, protection.

Again, as the other half of reproduction, the Emperor’s most basic manifestation is that of procreation, shown by the scepter he is offering the Empress and hinted on by the egg under the eagle.

We incarnate in this or another lifetime to experience a male body and psyche. Build, control, explore, expand, be a boy, a father, defend or attack the weak, be a leader or a tyrant, etc.
