ARCHETYPES

Object or Artifact


Physical Nature of this Object
The Widow
The Widow (Reversed) Grieving process, recovery from a serious loss
Basic Interpretation:
The Widow drapes mournfully over a grave, completely taken with the grief of her lost one. She holds a red rose; perhaps in memory of true love, perhaps as a reminder of what will never come again. This card indicates a loss. This could be a loved one's death, the theft of a cherished possession, or a loss of innocence.
Aspect or History of this Object
The Roach
The Roach (Reversed) Unchangeable nature, denial
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.

Object Suggestions: A mausoleum, a statue, a painting, a shroud, a rose.
