Your Past - Present - Future Tarot Reading
The Emperor represents the principle of masculinity, not just in the human realm but also within the fabric of creation. He represents order, structure and control. Whereas the Empress is the power of creativity and fertility, the Emperor represents the ability to take formless matter and give it shape, organisation and structure. When he appears in a reading, he signifies control and orderly rule. On a practical level, he represents the laws and structure of society, be they good or evil.
Ten of Coins
The wealth in this card usually does not come suddenly, nor to those without merit. It is a result of efforts. The couple in this card has received part of their wealth, both material and in terms of stable loving homes, from the generation before them, but did not rest on the laurels, and made their own way. As every completed cycle carries the seed for the new cycle, they are now ready to share their wealth and pass it on to the next generation.
Nine of Wands
The 9 of Wands is about standing up to a powerful force even if that means doing it alone and potentially getting hurt in that process. The 9 of Wands is about being prepared, determined, dedicated, tough, independent, an energized gate, overcoming adversity, focusing strength, confident, and having a positive outlook that leads to future success. It says: "I'm not giving up!" It is a card that sees a person at both his or her weakest and strongest point while coming out alive and kicking -- stronger than ever before. When the 9 of Wands represents a person, he or she masters and sacrifices his or her fear in order to drum up the focused and precise strength needed to reach the goal of protection.
