The SycophantAir, Waning Gibbous (3)
Keywords:Weakness, desperation, conniving schemes, false praise, seeking powerful alliance to earn protection
Reversed Meaning:Genuine admiration and respect, surprising allies
Basic Interpretation:Sniveling and wheedling, the Sycophant courts the trappings of wealth and power by allying himself with those more powerful. His spineless and self-effacing ways make others feel better about themselves, but ultimately are false.
Objects:a dagger, Costume Jewelry, Fool's Gold, a mirror
Plot Suggestions:Must schmooze and play politics to achieve a goal; an unwise decision goes unchallenged; "common knowledge" turns out to be false.
