ARCHETYPES


This represents something moving you towards the goal described by the Future card
The Jester

The Jester


This represents an aspect of the past
The Madonna

The Madonna

Satire, wisdom, common sense, bravery, Truth, comedy, humor
Basic Interpretation:
Pondering the ways of the world, the Jester sits and contemplates his staff. He has seen much and heard more; his shoulders bear the weight of knowledge that he cannot openly reveal. His jokes mask his wisdom and sometimes keep him alive when his beliefs are unpopular. He is clever, but bound by convention.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Sycophant

The Sycophant

(Reversed) Over-protective love, family secrets
Basic Interpretation:
Golden light frames a woman holding her child. She is the Madonna; the Good Mother. In every culture and all times, the figure of the ever-forgiving and trusted maternal figure has been a steadfast fixture.

This is something hindering your progress
The Druid

The Druid

(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.
(Reversed) Lack of concern for social niceties, unwillingness to play politics
Basic Interpretation:
Holding a laurel and a golden bowl up to the sun-dappled trees overhead, the Druid bears an expression of communal bliss on her face. She is in complete harmony with her surroundings and nature. She does not break the land to her will, but the land willingly gives unto her what she needs.
