The Lovers

Physical victory, executive, realization, law, authority, figurehead

The Prisoner

The Prisoner

(Reversed) Short-term romance, "crushes," inappropriate unions, blind lust
Basic Interpretation:
Oblivious of their idyllic surroundings, the Lovers stare intently into each other's eyes. Their attraction may lead to marriage or perhaps something more transient. They believe they have found the only thing they need in each other's arms.

This is something hindering your progress
The Brute

The Brute

(Reversed) Outside influence forces a reevaluation of priorities
Basic Interpretation:
Lacking chance or choice, the Prisoner sits in his cell at the whim of others. The Prisoner's fate is decided by others; control over life is rests with judges, jury or simple luck. There is hope, but no power to act. Decisions are being made but the Prisoner has little say in the matter.
(Reversed) Lack of compassion, selfishness
Basic Interpretation:
The Brute snarls as he lays into his enemies with blazing energy and deadly steel. Big and strong, the Brute allows no compromise and offers no consideration for those who stray into his path. His physical actions overcome the best laid schemes of his enemies.
