The Emperor (IV)

Constructing a dam with a solid foundation requires strategic thinking and a disciplined and organized approach. The Emperor signifies the structure and stability present in our life. Similarly to the ‘provider’ quality of this card, a beaver builds its home to protect and provide for its family.


In the reversed position, the Emperor can represent domination and excessive control. The beaver may be small, but it has the ability to profoundly impact its environment so that it better suits its needs.
