The Fool

The Fool


This represents an aspect of the past
The Brute

The Brute

(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 represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Thief

The Thief

(Reversed) Lack of compassion, selfishness
Basic Interpretation:
The Brute snarls as he lays into his enemies with blazing energy and deadly steel. Big and strong, the Brute allows no compromise and offers no consideration for those who stray into his path. His physical actions overcome the best laid schemes of his enemies.

This is something hindering your progress
The Guide

The Guide

(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.
Guide, mentor, safety, safe passage, assistance, informed council
Basic Interpretation:
The Guide knows the land well and can easily tell the poor path from the good one. Her knowledge is invaluable and her accuracy infallible. She is deeply spiritual and offers answers to many questions of direction; if only the listener cares to heed her advice.
