ARCHETYPES


The Past
Fire

Fire

(Reversed) Self consuming effort, burning out, visible end
Basic Interpretation:
The mercurial hot flames hold all the power and essence of the Universe. Fire itself is the fundamental representative of the spark of creation, power, force and energy. It is a fundamental force; without direction but able to be channeled by those who wish to focus its power. The essence of this card is Power in its own right; raw, unchanneled energy that courses and flows like solar winds.

The Present
The Harvest

The Harvest

(Reversed) Final effort, last step, remaining work before fruition
Basic Interpretation:
A woman in the fullness of pregnancy, holds the bounty of the fertile countryside. This is the Harvest; the time of reward for long work and dedication. It is the fullness of life, the happy reward and the richness of the season.

The Future
The Sycophant

The Sycophant

(Reversed) Genuine admiration and respect, surprising allies
Basic Interpretation:
Sniveling and wheedling, the Sycophant courts the trappings of wealth and power by allying himself with those more powerful. His spineless and self-effacing ways make others feel better about themselves, but ultimately are false.
