The Emperor Reversed: The control is lost and suddenly the foundation seems to crumble. But is this such a bad thing? If your empire is built on faulty structures, it may be best to tear it down altogether. If something seems to be spinning out of your hands, you must accept this rather than fight it. When you let go of the need to control, you’ll be in a better place to start over once the dust settles.

It’s also imperative to put self-care on the menu. If you’ve been too busy trying to protect the realm and micromanage every detail, you could be depleted. All work and no play will hasten the problems. Slow down, make time for passion and joy. If you do this, you’ll be in better shape for the work that needs to be done.
