Understanding A reversed Emperor Card in a Love Tarot Reading
In love tarot, a reversed Emperor card often indicates that a relationship has lost its balance of power. Perhaps one partner is dominating the other. There could also be issues surrounding a lack of compassion or empathy. When relationships move into this cycle, it’s very difficult to maintain effective communication and trust. If you and your partner are struggling to take the position of authority, it could wind up backfiring. Consequently, one partner is always left feeling unheard or mistreated. Resentment may begin to plaque the relationship and it can become very difficult to interact in your relationship in a loving way.
In some love tarot readings, a reversed Emperor card can indicate the type of person who is attracted to the domineering or controlling partner. A reversed Emperor tarot card can serve as a warning as to not give up too much of your power and maintain your own sense of self. Still, there could also be the issue of giving too much power over to authority figures. This often leaves people feeling powerless or immobilized. If you have a history of doing this and you are still single, you may need to take a good look at your relationship with your parental figures and ask yourself how this might be affecting your current love relationships. In a love tarot reading, the reversed Emperor card can indicate the type of love relationship that may be lacking closeness and intimacy.
