The Festival

The Festival


This represents an aspect of the past
The Crown

The Crown

(Reversed) Entertainment, a break from life's work
Basic Interpretation:
The surroundings of the Festival are opulent and the mood is busy, dynamic and gay. Everywhere you look, people are engaged in celebration; it is a time of success, victory and generous happiness.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Noble

The Noble

Change in social status, fame, politics
Basic Interpretation:
The Crown is the ultimate symbol of status. The hovering Crown on this card indicates a change in status or interaction with those of a different social group.

This is something hindering your progress
The Sycophant

The Sycophant

(Reversed) Conceit, ego, overdeveloped sense of self-worth
Basic Interpretation:
The Noble sits upon a throne, basking in his riches and blind to the suffering of those who hold him where he is. He is unaware (or possibly unconcerned) with the price paid by others to maintain his unearned position and wealth. He simply feels entitled to his lofty lifestyle.
Weakness, desperation, conniving schemes, false praise, seeking powerful alliance to earn protection
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.
