The Festival

The Festival


This represents an aspect of the past
The Rune

The Rune

(Reversed) Entertainment, a break from life's work
Basic Interpretation:
The surroundings of the Festival are opulent and the mood is busy, dynamic and gay. Everywhere you look, people are engaged in celebration; it is a time of success, victory and generous happiness.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Alchemist

The Alchemist

Symbols, metaphors, meaning, the nature of reality, the power of words to change reality
Basic Interpretation:
A dark menhir rises against a starry sky; on its surface is carved the Rune. The Rune has many meanings - most of which are created by the one who reads it. The message the Rune conveys has the power to alter reality itself through the actions of the reader.

This is something hindering your progress
The Beast

The Beast

(Reversed) The agent of change is himself changed
Basic Interpretation:
By use of his Science and arcane apparatus, the Alchemist changes the very nature of the matter he employs. The Alchemist is the agent of change - not a change in direction or appearance, but a profound change of elemental nature.
(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.
