Emperor and Empress at Home
The following is a tongue-in-cheek portrayal of the Emperor and Empress at
home on an average evening.

If you enjoyed the humor of the
cartoon to the left, you might be
interested in getting a shirt with a
slightly edited version of it.  (I have
added a caption, but I'll let you see for

Emperor and Empress at home
After I completed the cartoon above I shared it with several friends, and we saw some
interesting messages in it.  
For one, the scene outside is based upon the background of the Empress card. Considering
her comment, this indicates that when a relationship separates you from where your soul longs
to be, you can become discontented with the relationship.  
For another, the Emperor’s attention is focused on TV, aka, “the box.” Considering that in
numerological theory, the number 4 (the Emperor’s number) refers to (among other things)
structure, order, foundations and boundaries, this provides a sobering comment on how we
tend to base our concepts of reality on what the media shows us.

What meaning or messages do you see in this picture?
... More humor to come as time permits.
