ARCHETYPES

Object or Artifact


Physical Nature of this Object
The Sycophant
The Sycophant (Reversed) Genuine admiration and respect, surprising allies
Basic Interpretation:
Sniveling and wheedling, the Sycophant courts the trappings of wealth and power by allying himself with those more powerful. His spineless and self-effacing ways make others feel better about themselves, but ultimately are false.
Aspect or History of this Object
The Merchant
The Merchant (Reversed) Nothing is free, wealth can buy freedom.
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.

Object Suggestions: a dagger, Costume Jewelry, Fool's Gold, a mirror
