This is an article in a series on how to read the Tarot Cards. This series contains an in depth look at each of the cards’ possible interpretations within a reading in context of their position. I will be using the Celtic Cross spread.

The Emperor (Reversed) On His Own

The Emperor (Reversed) on his own is a card suggesting a person who has no financial prowess. This person is constantly making mistakes in the world of business. If he does see the battlefield he is at best a third wheel, at worst he puts his whole regiment at risk.

1. The Emperor (Reversed) as the Center

The Emperor (Reversed) as the Center suggests the situation was not well planned out. The receiver just jumped into the situation without any thoughts of implications, and now he is stuck and doesn’t know what to do about it.

2. The Emperor (Reversed) as the Obstacle

The Emperor (Reversed) as the Obstacle suggests the receiver is making a lot of foolish choices in regarding the situation. If any thought goes into it at all, it’s quick and it’s only to give him a sense of justification in his actions.

6. The Emperor (Reversed) as the Recent Past

The Emperor (Reversed) as the Recent Past suggest it was the receiver’s ill planning which brought him to this point. He jumped in head first, and never gave thought to possible consequences. If he did, then he didn’t consider them too large an obstacle, and proceeded anyway.

9. The Emperor (Reversed) as the Intuition

The Emperor (Reversed) as the Intuition suggests the receiver hasn’t thought about the possible outcome on the situation. He is blindly stepping forward, hoping for the best, but not taking the steps to plan for it.

10. The Emperor (Reversed) as the Outcome

The Emperor (Reversed) as the Outcome suggests the situation is going to come to a crashing halt. The planning wasn’t put forth for any sort of end, and it will just fall apart organically.
