05/19/13: Who’s really in charge? / Emperor reversed


“One change always leaves the way open for the establishment of others.” Niccolo Machiavelli


The Emperor is  here reversed, and the first thing that comes to mind in such circumstance: who’s really in charge? Is the person seated upon the throne still the one calling the shots? Or does he merely think he is? Because from this vantage point, it appears his control is waning.

This isn’t some out-and-out coup d’état. More like a gradual erosion of authority. If you’re the Emperor, take stock of your power and enforce what you want to keep. And if you’re looking to unseat the Emperor, continue chipping away because that’s how he comes down. The once mighty, perhaps distracted by the grandiosity of their own adornment, will probably never see it coming. Just remember: simply because it’s “always been this way” doesn’t mean it always will be.

Do you see this dynamic around you?
