ARCHETYPES


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

The Sycophant


This represents an aspect of the past
The Merchant

The Merchant

(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 represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Knight

The Knight

(Reversed) Nothing is free, wealth can buy freedom.
Basic Interpretation:
Swirling in a chaotic blur of color, sound and smells, the bazaar is open for business and the Merchant is at home. Wheedling, arguing, negotiating, and lying, the Merchant conducts business with all the fineness and artistry of a dancer at the ball.

This is something hindering your progress
Fortune's Wheel

Fortune's Wheel

Structure, service, loyalty, fidelity, follows rules, responsibility
Basic Interpretation:
Dedicated to his superiors and the oaths he has taken, the Knight stands ready to joyously serve. The Knight's loyalty and fidelity are beyond question. He has earned the honor other bestow on him by his skill and loyal service.
(Reversed) Lack of ability to determine fate, "Playing the hand Fate dealt you."
Basic Interpretation:
Fortune's Wheel constantly turns bringing gamblers, random victims, thrill-seekers and joyous revelers the uncertain rewards of life. Despite the most carefully laid plans, sometimes we tumble through existence towards an unknown fate.
