ARCHETYPES


The Past
The Caregiver

The Caregiver

Duty, responsibility, care for another, security, recovery, health, sacrifice
Basic Interpretation:
In times of war, there are those who serve by tending those who fight. A nurse, the Caregiver, stands by the wounded; her heart, mind and skill are at his disposal to aid his recovery that he may live to see another day.

The Present
The Judge

The Judge

(Reversed) Swift resolution, decisive action
Basic Interpretation:
Seated between icons of life and death, the Judge peers sternly and disapprovingly upon the convicted. He is the protector of the status quo and uninterested in new ideas. He passes judgment conservatively and dispassionately; no humor is allowed in his court.

The Future
The Smith

The Smith

(Reversed) Overcoming obstacles, pride in craftsmanship
Basic Interpretation:
Persistence, mastery and strength of will are the solid groundings of the Smith. Like water shaping rock, the Smith employs weak and fallible flesh to forge and shape steel itself. Objects or even lives of great importance, beauty and duration can be forged by skill and time where raw power is lacking.
