A whale, the king of the sea, rules over the emotions by
recognizing that they are a force of Nature. Thus, he doesn't
try to control the waves--he lets them wash over him. He also is
an internal source for water, and fills his vessel with his own
Tarot wisdom: To rule your emotions means to let them
alone. They are a force of Nature. You are the source of your
own satisfaction--don't look to others to provide that for you.
Don't let others take away your own happiness. It is only
necessary for you to control your own behavior, which is independent from the emotions.
