ARCHETYPES


The Past
The Captain

The Captain

(Reversed) Earned respect, seniority
Basic Interpretation:
The Captain denotes active leadership and responsibility. Triumphant, the Captain leads his crew towards the end of their journey. His will and good sense won the day; the end is in sight! New lands have been discovered, home has been found and the long voyage is nearly over.

The Present
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.

The Future
The Thespian

The Thespian

Guile, socially acceptable deceit, entertainment, harmless illusion
Basic Interpretation:
The Thespian doffs her mask to the world, looking out from eyes that are never quite her own. Mirth, fury, fear and sadness are never for certain when dealing with this person, but it's usually just a harmless deceit. The Thespian may hide many things, or she may wear the truth in plain sight. It all depends on the play.
