ARCHETYPES


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

The Caregiver


This represents an aspect of the past
The Rune

The Rune

(Reversed) Lack of concern for one's self, senseless martyrdom
Basic Interpretation:
In times of war, there are those who serve by tending those who fight. A nurse, the Caregiver, stands by the wounded; her heart, mind and skill are at his disposal to aid his recovery that he may live to see another day.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Herald

The Herald

Symbols, metaphors, meaning, the nature of reality, the power of words to change reality
Basic Interpretation:
A dark menhir rises against a starry sky; on its surface is carved the Rune. The Rune has many meanings - most of which are created by the one who reads it. The message the Rune conveys has the power to alter reality itself through the actions of the reader.

This is something hindering your progress
The Smith

The Smith

(Reversed) News may be too late or unimportant, incorrect focus
Basic Interpretation:
Standing solid on a windswept plain, a Roman Centurion looks upon those who have come to hear his words. The Herald represents those influences from afar that effect us all. Perhaps he bears tidings of importance, news of a war, or simply reports of far-off affairs.
Persistence, strength of will, patience
Basic Interpretation:
Persistence, mastery and strength of will are the solid groundings of the Smith. Like water shaping rock, the Smith employs weak and fallible flesh to forge and shape steel itself. Objects or even lives of great importance, beauty and duration can be forged by skill and time where raw power is lacking.
