ARCHETYPES


The Past
Water

Water

(Reversed) Water - ill dignified
Basic Interpretation:
The swirling, fluid seas hold all the majesty and fluidity of human emotion. Water itself is the fundamental representative of spirituality, emotion, instinct and reflection. It is a fundamental force; without direction but able to be channeled by those who wish to focus its power. The currents of this card are always moving, sometimes turbulent but deeper than most suspect.

The Present
Regret

Regret

Regret, lost opportunities, looking back instead of forward, dwelling on the past
Basic Interpretation:
A woman stands looking out to sea at the ship that carries her love away. Too late, she has read his letter and thinks back with Regret on what may have been. She now knows her mistake - all she has is her emotions and the knowledge that what has passed cannot be changed.

The Future
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.
