The Emperor Moon Void Tarot Deck Black and White Crystal

Stalked By The Emperor

The Emperor is stalking me. He has appeared for three consecutive days on my daily tarot card reading. Four, if I include the Meletos staycation tarot spread. What’s weirder is that this isn’t the first time this card has stalked me. The last time it happened, I chalked it as a message to call Appa. He did stop appearing after that.

But this time, I don’t think it has anything to do with a masculine representation in my life. For once, The Emperor card in the Moon Void Tarot deck – the one I have been using ever since I got it early this month – doesn’t have the Emperor on it; the card only shows his crown, sceptre and robe placed on his throne. Seems like he is busy doing stuff instead of just sitting on his ass. Which, if I am honest, is a nice alternative to the classic depiction of the card in Rider Waite Smith tarot deck. On the Rider Waite Smith, the Emperor is just sitting there, drapped in a red robe, looking rather stern.

His rigidness on the Rider Waite Smith deck aside, I am indifferent towards The Emperor in tarot. It’s not one of my deck deciding tarot cards. And come to think of it; I have never seen The Emperor card that I like to from any deck I own.

The traditional meaning of the card The Emperor is about structure, authority, ability and so on. Meanwhile, Stef, the creator of the Moon Void Tarot deck, said this about the him:

Emperor (Aries) energy appears when we are asked to stand up and stand out, to take up more space as well as holding space for others.

Foundation, respect, standing the ground, space… I still am unsure what message the Emperor is trying to convey me. Maybe I ought to spend some more time with it. It could just be the first tarot card that I meditate on.

Staycation Tarot Spread Moon Void Tarot

Meletos Staycation Tarot Spread

Last year Fafa got me a staycation at Meletos farmhouse as a birthday gift. Fifteen months and one more birthday later, we are finally going there this weekend. I pulled a few cards to re-create my go-to travel spread.

Travel Spread position —

  1. My vibe during the staycation
  2. The staycation’s energy
  3. Something to focus on or be mindful of during the staycation
  4. A must (do/see/experience) on the staycation
  5. The staycation’s highlights
  6. Souvenir or lesson learned from the staycation

Here is my reading for our Meletos staycation —

My vibe during the trip: Justice

When this card appears the Universe is working on restoring the balance.

OMG Yes! YES, 100% Yes. After experiencing burn-out in the past few weeks, I am counting on this staycation will help to tip the scale and bring it back to the work-life balance I strive for.

The staycation’s energy: Queen of Pentacles

Deep connection with nature.

For me, the Queen of Pentacles here represent Meletos itself. The farmhouse Meletos is a gorgeous boutique hotel located in acres and acres of land with uninterrupted views across vines and apple orchards to the blue-tinged Great Divide. In a word, it’s fancy. And I am so looking forward to just staying in and absorbing the energy.

Something to focus on during the staycation: The Lovers

An excellent time for us to connect, do fun couple activities. I am thinking wine tasting, long walks through the vineyards and bubble bath sesh.

A must (do/see/experience) on the staycation: King of Swords

King of Swords Moon Void Tarot

I struggle to see how the King of Swords would connect with our staycation, so I looked more intently onto the image. The element of fire pops up (also all Kings represent the element of fire). A reminder to get cozy-up by the fireplace maybe?

The staycation’s highlights: Nine of Cups

Nine glass of wine here I come!

Souvenir or lesson learned from the staycation: The Emperor

Similar to the King of Swords earlier, I turned into the image of the card to see its’ correlation with the staycation.

On the Moon Void Tarot deck, The Emperor card is missing the Emperor. It just has his crown and cape left on the throne. It looks like the Emperor is taking a break himself. It reminds me that everyone, even the Emperor, could benefit from taking a break from the daily duties now and then.

Calling The Emperor

I draw The Emperor again today.

But unlike the last time when I interpreted myself as the red cape wearing Emperor — this time, I get a strong feeling that The Emperor is about a male figure in my life. Being the Emperor, my thought went to Appa.

A reminder of him? That I have got to call him since it has been more than a week since we last spoke.

I was going to today but life got in the way. What a sad excuse, I know. I texted him just now, promising I will give him a call tomorrow.
