ARCHETYPES

Object or Artifact


Physical Nature of this Object
The Roach
The Roach Inescapable, inevitable, side effects, unwanted, uninvited guests
Basic Interpretation:
The unwanted brother of humanity has invited himself to the feast. The revelers despise the Roach's presence, but can do little to eliminate him. After all, does he not thrive on the same conditions and food as his unwilling hosts? This card represents unwanted side effects or an unchangeable nature.
Aspect or History of this Object
The Smith
The Smith Persistence, strength of will, patience
Basic Interpretation:
Persistence, mastery and strength of will are the solid groundings of the Smith. Like water shaping rock, the Smith employs weak and fallible flesh to forge and shape steel itself. Objects or even lives of great importance, beauty and duration can be forged by skill and time where raw power is lacking.

Object Suggestions: Spoiled food, a bird cage, beer or wine.
