The Moon

The Moon


This represents an aspect of the past
The Sycophant

The Sycophant

Night, female, shadow, hidden wisdom
Basic Interpretation:
The Moon looks slyly out from her home in the heavens and peers with pride upon the night. She is the wisdom of the ages as enshrined by femininity; she is shadow, secrets and nighttime. The Moon knows that often the best way to show a good path is by hiding it in shadow.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Widow

The Widow

(Reversed) Genuine admiration and respect, surprising allies
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.

This is something hindering your progress
Childhood

Childhood

(Reversed) Grieving process, recovery from a serious loss
Basic Interpretation:
The Widow drapes mournfully over a grave, completely taken with the grief of her lost one. She holds a red rose; perhaps in memory of true love, perhaps as a reminder of what will never come again. This card indicates a loss. This could be a loved one's death, the theft of a cherished possession, or a loss of innocence.
(Reversed) Irresponsibility, simplistic delusions, lack of accountability
Basic Interpretation:
Children play, full of youthful exuberance, creating whole new worlds from the things of everyday life. The whimsy of imaginary friends, the artistry of unrestricted creativity and the exuberance of youth - these are the elements of Childhood.
