The Captain

News, outside input, distant influences
Basic Interpretation:
Standing solid on a windswept plain, a Roman Centurion looks upon those who have come to hear his words. The Herald represents those influences from afar that effect us all. Perhaps he bears tidings of importance, news of a war, or simply reports of far-off affairs.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Tempest

The Tempest

Group travel, active leadership, responsibility
Basic Interpretation:
The Captain denotes active leadership and responsibility. Triumphant, the Captain leads his crew towards the end of their journey. His will and good sense won the day; the end is in sight! New lands have been discovered, home has been found and the long voyage is nearly over.

This is something hindering your progress
The Festival

The Festival

(Reversed) Rebirth after devastation, rebuilding after destruction
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.
Celebration, success, victory, positive outcome, social interaction, a gathering
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.
