The Lovers

The Lovers

(Reversed) Boredom, simplistic life
Basic Interpretation:
The Shepherd stands amidst his flock, defending them from the dangers of the world. He is ever vigilant, yet humble, taking his responsibility seriously and with sacred dedication. Even if he must walk this path and face its dangers by himself, he will do so until his time is done.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Seeker

The Seeker

(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 Rune

The Rune

Truth, quest, absolutes, definitions, gaining wisdom and insight
Basic Interpretation:
Amidst artifacts and shadows, the Seeker examines clues he hopes will further his quest for the one Truth. He believes that there is an absolute answer and he has dedicated his life to its discovery.
(Reversed) Confusion, obscurement, fiction perceived as 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.
