Mars is all about expression and action. It is stubborn, outward, assertive. The Emperor creates structure and rules by tapping into Mars: He represents ''masculine/provider''.

The Emperor and High Priestess Tarot Combination in Love
When the Emperor and High Priestess learns to work together despite their differences, it is pure magic.
Even though this is a deeply compatible and satisfying dynamic, loaded with passion and intrigue, there may be issues surrounding the give and take aspect of the connection.
The Emperor is often a warrior in love. When he desires something, he often moves too fast and hot for High Priestess’s gentle emotionality.
Due to his protecting and providing nature, he is also known as the ‘’father figure’’ of Tarot- However sometimes he takes this approach too far and becomes bossy, self-righteous and overly controlling in a relationship.
If the Emperor energy is more dominant in your love life, one or both partners may need to move on from this attitude into a more receptive and loving approach.
On the other hand, The High Priestess in this relationship may represent a sense of something hiding behind a veil of secrecy: this could be about unrevealed emotions/motives, or in extreme cases it can point to a third party situation.

Even if you are single, this inner balancing work between the masculine and feminine energies is necessary in order to welcome the most fulfilling love into your life .
And lastly, especially if you are asking about the future of a relationship, The High Priestess gives the message of ‘’listen to your intuition, you already know the answer.’’
