He is strong in himself, knowing what he wants and how to take the steps to achieve his dreams. Strong in determination he can conquer his fears and step forward with conviction.

He teaches to encompass and protect with wisdom and clarity. Trees that grow tall must be firmly rooted to the earth just as the Emperor’s vision for the future can only be achieved if he is grounded.
