ARCHETYPES


The Past
Water

Water

Reflection, distortion, spirituality, emotion
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
The Box

The Box

(Reversed) Missing or incomplete information, inevitability
Basic Interpretation:
The ornate Box rests in shadow holding something unknown. Whatever is in the box - be it danger, salvation or just a dead cat - is very real, but unknowable until the box is opened.The future is inevitable, but unknown.

The Future
The Beast

The Beast

(Reversed) Indulged desire, expressed feelings, honest expression
Basic Interpretation:
The battle against the Beast takes place not on a bloody plain but in the heart and mind. The Beast represents inner callings and urges. Although often denied, desires and feelings effect outward actions.
