Control (of elements, of others)


From The Mystic Tarot:

Responsibility, energy and courage

Keep strong emotions under control and apply logic to your problems

Watch your temper, don’t abuse your power

Brain power

“I am in charge of my own life. I have the power.”

From The Illustrated Book of Tarot:

Linked to Aries

Think of great Father gods – Zeus, Thor

Left brain – logic, reason, authority

“go out and get”

Worldly achievement

Competitive qualities

On the verge of promotion? Others may look to you to be in charge

The card of the Hunter – he gets what he wants

Reversed: Other, more powerful people seem to be in control of your destiny

Hatred of authority. Learn to deal with regulations.

Could lose some authority.

Out of touch with masculinity, lacking ambition

From The Ananda Tarot:

Unwise/uncareful decisions being made

Control your emotions

From The Luigi Scapini Tarot:

Putting order to chaos


Paternity, fraternal, husband – male influence


Reverse: Immaturity


Lack of strength, indecision

Inability to make progress
