Sometimes this figure, like king, represents feelings about your father. It may indicate your need for approval or parental blessing, or what feelings or needs you are ‘ruled’ by.

A ruling figure like this also can represent the whole, the will of collective humanity. See: king.

Father and mother are symbolized as king and queen or emperor and empress, children as little animals, death as a journey.

Useful questions and hints:

What is your relationship with the emperor or empress in your dream/

Do I relate to them in a childlike way?

Do you need approval or parental blessing for your decisions?
