Soundtrack Through The Arcana - The Emperor

I feel like I'm just whipping through these, eh? i'm actually having a blast going through my playlists and revisiting playlists of the past and coming up with these selections. I have quite a few chosen for future spots that I'm excited about, but for now, gotta stay the course.

For the Emperor, I went with a hometown hero (heh) and truthfully, half of the reason I choose a song by this artist was so that I could make the observation (that's been made before) that the Emperor in the Fountain Tarot kinda looks just like him. Take a look at the image below and tell me you disagree!

The Emperor
Song: Headlines
Artist: Drake
Album: Take Care

Ya, I felt like The Emperor needed a bit of an anthem. The Emperor takes no fucking prisoners. He leads an army into battle and then sits back and receives all the accommodates. He is the leader of the pact; full of confidence, stamina and strength. He doesn't back down, he doesn't step to the side and he doesn't make sacrifices unless they benefit his end game. The Emperor is also considered the archetypal father figure of the Tarot deck and so those playing on his side will be well taken care of. Here, "Headlines" is all about making a bold and unapologetic statement about one's rising place in the world. Get with the program or get out of the way.

I might be too strung out on compliments
Overdosed on confidence
Started not to give a fuck and stopped fearin’ the consequence
Drinkin’ every night because we drink to my accomplishments
I know I exaggerated things, now I got it like that
Tuck my napkin in my shirt, ‘cause I’m just mobbin’ like that
You know good and well that you don’t want a problem like that
You gon’ make someone around me catch a body like that
‘Cause one of us goes in, and we all go through it
And Drizzy got the money, so Drizzy gonna pay it
Those my brothers, I ain’t even gotta say it
That’s just something they know

As always, I've added the track to the playlist below so feel free to have a listen and follow along in Spotify to see new songs as they're added! 

Until next time!
