The Jester

The Jester

(Reversed) Self-fulfilling prophesy, projected beliefs, fortune telling
Basic Interpretation:
The Oracle peers into the past, present and future. She sees all that can be, could have been and never was. Her lips are tight on the visions she has seen, for knowledge can be a two-edged sword. Her revelations may not always be clear, but they are never without basis.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Architect

The Architect

(Reversed) Secrets, veiled truths, possible danger in direct truth
Basic Interpretation:
Pondering the ways of the world, the Jester sits and contemplates his staff. He has seen much and heard more; his shoulders bear the weight of knowledge that he cannot openly reveal. His jokes mask his wisdom and sometimes keep him alive when his beliefs are unpopular. He is clever, but bound by convention.

This is something hindering your progress
The Moon

The Moon

Logic, plan, vision, methodical nature, Designed
Basic Interpretation:
Constructed of his own visions and methodical ideas, the Architect peers outwards intently planning his next creation. Behind him, the fruits of former efforts loom, casting their shadows upon his current plans. This cards speaks to the fruits of effective planning.
Night, female, shadow, hidden wisdom
Basic Interpretation:
The Moon looks slyly out from her home in the heavens and peers with pride upon the night. She is the wisdom of the ages as enshrined by femininity; she is shadow, secrets and nighttime. The Moon knows that often the best way to show a good path is by hiding it in shadow.
