The Brute

The Brute

Duty, responsibility, care for another, security, recovery, health, sacrifice
Basic Interpretation:
In times of war, there are those who serve by tending those who fight. A nurse, the Caregiver, stands by the wounded; her heart, mind and skill are at his disposal to aid his recovery that he may live to see another day.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Merchant

The Merchant

(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 Governor

The Governor

Commerce, negotiation, material possessions, financial and political reality.
Basic Interpretation:
Swirling in a chaotic blur of color, sound and smells, the bazaar is open for business and the Merchant is at home. Wheedling, arguing, negotiating, and lying, the Merchant conducts business with all the fineness and artistry of a dancer at the ball.
(Reversed) a hollow or expensive victory
Basic Interpretation:
Seated upon his throne of Law, the Governor reviews the victorious troops and citizens arrayed before him. His effective leadership and legislative acumen ushered in this comfortable state of affairs. The war is won and everyone takes pride in the accomplishment.
