ARCHETYPES


The Past
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.

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 Knight

The Knight

Structure, service, loyalty, fidelity, follows rules, responsibility
Basic Interpretation:
Dedicated to his superiors and the oaths he has taken, the Knight stands ready to joyously serve. The Knight's loyalty and fidelity are beyond question. He has earned the honor other bestow on him by his skill and loyal service.
