The Caregiver

The Caregiver


This represents an aspect of the past
The Fool

The Fool

Duty, responsibility, care for another, security, recovery, health, sacrifice
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 Diva

The Diva

(Reversed) Stupidity, ignorance of facts
Basic Interpretation:
Folly, irresponsibility, directionlessness and a lack of concern are the hallmarks of a fool. He is care-free, but only because he is unaware. His steps are light and seem to skip merrily, but is it dancing or drunken foolhardiness?

This is something hindering your progress
The Noble

The Noble

(Reversed) Physical beauty, aesthetic appearance
Basic Interpretation:
The Diva is forever equating aristocratic ideals of beauty and importance with her own self-worth. She proudly flaunts her comfortable lifestyle and indulges her senses in an effort to be more than she is.
Injustice, reward without merit, nepotism
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.
