Kali or Hecate, the vengeful mother. 17 A Feminist Tarot 4 THE EMPEROR Sign Aries Upright: DOMINATION T he archetypical king, the active father force, god as the father, the ultimate patriarch.

Reversed: ILL HEALTH also Pessimism Some cutoff from life-giving sources. Malaise, lack of energy, doldrums, fatigue. Perhaps an experience of mental illness. Fear of opening to the sources of health. Tightness. Some alienation from the unconscious or from understanding it.
