This card shows an emperor, finely dressed usually with one foot resting across one knee.
He has an air of relaxed gravity, and pomp about him, as he watches those below him with an almost fatherly expression, while exuding immense power.
There is also a sense that this man could do anything he wishes, without asking anyone else for an opinion.(This is probably why he can refer to government, and councils)
The card means among other things,
A Boss, a Governor. In charge,
Doing things which have to be seen to be correct.
Someone to respect and look up to.
Government, councils and seats of power.
As a one a day card reading, this card would urge you to be aware that you have great power to change things, or put things through,but must do things which are seen to be upstanding
