Authority is The Emperor love Tarot meaning. Sometimes, The Emperor can predict that either you or your lover will become important.
Often, The Emperor can predict that you will achieve a level of status. Alternatively, you may be offered assistance from a person that you love and respect, who has higher social standing than yourself. This person will have plans to pull you up in the world and give you opportunities that you cannot get yourself.
You are looking at power and stability, so keep this in mind when interpreting The Emperor card. How do power and stability relate to the question and the position in the spread you are using. Often, this card symbolizes influential people who intend to help you in your career.
The Emperor is a reminder that you do not know everything. Sometimes, you have to enlist the help of other people to get from point A to point B. The Emperor has lessons to teach.
However, there are cases when The Emperor will not be work orientated. Because of the highly masculine energy, it could symbolize an important male figure in your life, such as a father or husband.

The Emperor Love Tarot Meaning
Depending on your outlook and culture, The Emperor can be a favourable Tarot card to get for a love reading, or it can be your worst nightmare.
The Emperor predicts a lover who likes to be in control. He is your stereotypical man who expects his dinner made for him at 5 pm and needs you to do all of the cleaning. The Emperor is the epitome of male energy, and the card represents people who embody a very masculine personality type.
I’m Romany Gypsy, and in my culture, we like men to act manly. Our partners take the wheel and can be quite domineering. We prefer men who are powerful and authoritative at home and within our communities. Therefore, an Emperor character would suit me fine, and a relationship with an Emperor character would probably last for a long time.
However, I understand that some women do not like men to be bossy and dread the thought of them having the last word. If you are in this category, then The Emperor predicts a lover which you will not see eye to eye with – you may find them to be old-fashioned and controlling.

The Emperor Feelings Tarot Meaning
The meaning of The Emperor in a ‘feelings’ type of Tarot reading is rather similar to The Empress interpretation. The Emperor means that your lover wishes to take care of you.
However, The Emperor wants to be the provider; he will look after you. Your lover sees you as someone they can pay the bills for and take on dates. This means that they will not show affection in The Empress sense, but they will in less nurturing ways.
The Emperor Future Tarot Meaning
For most types of readings, The Emperor will appear in the future to symbolize a powerful person who will offer you a lot of advice. You will rub shoulders with individuals who can increase your influence. In some Tarot readings, The Emperor can even represent your own rise to fame.
If The Emperor falls into an outcome position, of a love reading which looks very negative, then your relationship with your partner will break down because of these reasons. However, if your relationship looks good, the future with your partner is set to last.
