ARCHETYPES


The Past
The Roach

The Roach

Inescapable, inevitable, side effects, unwanted, uninvited guests
Basic Interpretation:
The unwanted brother of humanity has invited himself to the feast. The revelers despise the Roach's presence, but can do little to eliminate him. After all, does he not thrive on the same conditions and food as his unwilling hosts? This card represents unwanted side effects or an unchangeable nature.

The Present
The Merchant

The Merchant

Commerce, negotiation, material possessions, financial and political reality.
Basic Interpretation:
Swirling in a chaotic blur of color, sound and smells, the bazaar is open for business and the Merchant is at home. Wheedling, arguing, negotiating, and lying, the Merchant conducts business with all the fineness and artistry of a dancer at the ball.

The Future
The Void

The Void

(Reversed) Nothingness, meaningless, absence of life, physically empty, insincere
Basic Interpretation:
The void contains nothing. It is absent of life, energy, time or light.
