When the reversed Emperor is drawn, it may be a sign that a new spiritual advisor, (most likely an older male) is near. You must become careful if accepting any spiritual advice from “gurus.” There is no perfect human, and it is essential to listen to the inner intuition and voice despite what other people may say about the teacher or guru who is currently in, or may be entering, your life. Learn from the teacher, but avoid discarding the self during the process.
