ARCHETYPES


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

The Harvest


This represents an aspect of the past
The Engine

The Engine

(Reversed) Final effort, last step, remaining work before fruition
Basic Interpretation:
A woman in the fullness of pregnancy, holds the bounty of the fertile countryside. This is the Harvest; the time of reward for long work and dedication. It is the fullness of life, the happy reward and the richness of the season.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
Fortune's Wheel

Fortune's Wheel

(Reversed) Efficient, focused, productive
Basic Interpretation:
A complex amalgam of gears and machinery inexorably ticks its way towards a certain, uncaring goal. The gothic clockwork of the Engine doesn't care for emotions or needs or desires, it simply exists in pure, detached order.

This is something hindering your progress
The Phantom

The Phantom

Chance, randomness, capriciousness, change, thrill of the unknown
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.
Non-corporeal, insubstantial, phantasms, dreams, the dream world, actions without consequence
Basic Interpretation:
The Phantom's reality is visibly apparent, yet the hand can't confirm what the eye knows as truth. This card represents things which can be seen but have no basis in mundane reality.
