ARCHETYPES


The Past
Regret

Regret

(Reversed) The past cannot be changed but current actions can change the future.
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 Present
The Seeker

The Seeker

(Reversed) lost in the quest, a belief that the ends justify the means
Basic Interpretation:
Amidst artifacts and shadows, the Seeker examines clues he hopes will further his quest for the one Truth. He believes that there is an absolute answer and he has dedicated his life to its discovery.

The Future
The Merchant

The Merchant

(Reversed) Nothing is free, wealth can buy freedom.
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.
