The Beast

The Beast

The Tempest

The Tempest

(Reversed) Indulged desire, expressed feelings, honest expression
Basic Interpretation:
The battle against the Beast takes place not on a bloody plain but in the heart and mind. The Beast represents inner callings and urges. Although often denied, desires and feelings effect outward actions.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Crown

The Crown

Chaos, disorder, destruction, unopposable force, Nature reclaiming the land
Basic Interpretation:
A once-strong keep is ravaged and decimated by a raging Tempest/ The strongest creation of man is powerless before the forces of nature. The storm destroys ancient stones, fertile fields and everything in its path; the only thing it leaves is hope for a new dawn.

This is something hindering your progress
The Thief

The Thief

Change in social status, fame, politics
Basic Interpretation:
The Crown is the ultimate symbol of status. The hovering Crown on this card indicates a change in status or interaction with those of a different social group.
(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.
