Inspirational Card of the Day, power vs force

May 21 Inspirational Card of the Day
sending prayers to those in Oklahoma who were devastated by numerous Tornadoes
The card that appeared was the Visconti- Sforza deck from the Renaissance Italy
Tarot Emperor
The Emperor or King is all about POWER
He sits on his Throne, or HOT SEAT, and symbolizes the leader, God/King, shaman healer, visionary. 
In the Fisher King,story n the Grail Legend, the King was identified totally with the health and well being of his land and country.
Modern leaders do not have visionary, shamanic, healing characteristics.
Not  much has changed in the Western World relating to power,
power is of the mundane, illusory world of material success.
Most leaders today serve only themselves, not their land or their people,
seduced by money, power, controlled by lust and their ego's
they abuse their power, tax and steal from the poor, and rape their own lands
they do not have authentic power, they use a kind of POWER-OVER heirarchical system.
Now there are self- made Emperors everywhere, How long does their power last?
Is it all about money, or is there a deeper responsability and inner power?
Where is your power? Do you give it away to false authorities? Your Boss, spouse, friends?
Do you give it away to consumerism? or your false self?
Do you stand up to those in power who are abusing it?
What is success to you? What would you do if you were KING?
The King needs to have all 4 elements in balance to have real power,
Every man and woman has an inner King who symbolizes active creative power.
The Emperor is ARIES- action oriented.
Use your power wisely, power is not power-over but power from within.
Are you happy with the leader of your company, country or city?
How are you going to act to make sure they use their power wisely?
