Tarot Symbolism

Attune to the qualities of Aries with 3-minute tarot meditation on The Emperor.

The Emperor teaches us to be pioneering and to wield our power with compassion. The Emperor is about structure, strategy, form and order. Carol Bridges calls this card “Command” and says, “Command is not power over the force, but working with the force. It is taking advantage of a flow already strongly going.”

Confer with The Emperor for clarity, insight and self-discovery.

Aries Sits in the East on the Medicine Wheel.

The cardinal direction East points to the path of spiritual health via Clarity, Illumination, and Wisdom. 

Aries correlates to Clarity, the first step on the Eastern pathway of Sun Bear’s Medicine Wheel. The releasing and merging process of the Pisces cycle leads to purity of vision and the ability to begin anew with a fresh vision of who you are and another journey around the wheel.
