The SycophantAir, Waning Gibbous (3)
Keywords: Weakness, desperation, conniving schemes, false praise, seeking powerful alliance to earn protection
Reversed Meaning: 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.
Objects: a dagger, Costume Jewelry, Fool's Gold, a mirror
Plot Suggestions: Must schmooze and play politics to achieve a goal; an unwise decision goes unchallenged; "common knowledge" turns out to be false.
