ARCHETYPES


The Past
The Price

The Price

Price, cost, undesirable choices, "lesser of two evils," "Everything has a price," a deal with the devil, politics
Basic Interpretation:
All things have a price. It might be the sweat of one's brow, a Karmic debt, or the wages of sin. All gains must be purchased and all debts must eventually be paid.

The Present
The Alchemist

The Alchemist

(Reversed) The agent of change is himself changed
Basic Interpretation:
By use of his Science and arcane apparatus, the Alchemist changes the very nature of the matter he employs. The Alchemist is the agent of change - not a change in direction or appearance, but a profound change of elemental nature.

The Future
The Madonna

The Madonna

(Reversed) Over-protective love, family secrets
Basic Interpretation:
Golden light frames a woman holding her child. She is the Madonna; the Good Mother. In every culture and all times, the figure of the ever-forgiving and trusted maternal figure has been a steadfast fixture.
