ARCHETYPES

Object or Artifact


Physical Nature of this Object
The Jester
The Jester (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.
Aspect or History of this Object
The Judge
The Judge (Reversed) Swift resolution, decisive action
Basic Interpretation:
Seated between icons of life and death, the Judge peers sternly and disapprovingly upon the convicted. He is the protector of the status quo and uninterested in new ideas. He passes judgment conservatively and dispassionately; no humor is allowed in his court.

Object Suggestions: A jester's cap, a book of law, an owl's feather, a puppet.
