ARCHETYPES


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

Water


This represents an aspect of the past
Regret

Regret

(Reversed) Water - ill dignified
Basic Interpretation:
The swirling, fluid seas hold all the majesty and fluidity of human emotion. Water itself is the fundamental representative of spirituality, emotion, instinct and reflection. It is a fundamental force; without direction but able to be channeled by those who wish to focus its power. The currents of this card are always moving, sometimes turbulent but deeper than most suspect.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Thief

The Thief

(Reversed) The past cannot be changed but current actions can change the future.
Basic Interpretation:
A woman stands looking out to sea at the ship that carries her love away. Too late, she has read his letter and thinks back with Regret on what may have been. She now knows her mistake - all she has is her emotions and the knowledge that what has passed cannot be changed.

This is something hindering your progress
The Crown

The Crown

(Reversed) Shallow goals, things stolen, violation of trusts or covenants
Basic Interpretation:
Dangling from her own skill, the Thief reaches out to snare a great prize from the home where it belongs. She is enticed by the promise of something better for herself, despite whatever effect this loss may have on the proper owners. It is possible that this theft serves a greater purpose, but still there is no respect for those who currently own that which is needed.
(Reversed) Continuation of current social standing and alliances with a possible change in motivation
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.
