ARCHETYPES


The Past
The Noble

The Noble

Injustice, reward without merit, nepotism
Basic Interpretation:
The Noble sits upon a throne, basking in his riches and blind to the suffering of those who hold him where he is. He is unaware (or possibly unconcerned) with the price paid by others to maintain his unearned position and wealth. He simply feels entitled to his lofty lifestyle.

The Present
The Harvest

The Harvest

(Reversed) Final effort, last step, remaining work before fruition
Basic Interpretation:
A woman in the fullness of pregnancy, holds the bounty of the fertile countryside. This is the Harvest; the time of reward for long work and dedication. It is the fullness of life, the happy reward and the richness of the season.

The Future
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.
