ARCHETYPES

The World

The World


This represents an aspect of the past
The Prisoner

The Prisoner

Interconnectivity, diversity, totality, involvement, awareness, group activity or process
Basic Interpretation:
The World sits atop a vast and wise tortoise striding through the cosmos. Connected with all creation, there is no need to rush; all things eventually culminate in the larger picture and this totality of image is the final interpretation of the World.

This represents some aspect of your goal or future
The Druid

The Druid

(Reversed) Outside influence forces a reevaluation of priorities
Basic Interpretation:
Lacking chance or choice, the Prisoner sits in his cell at the whim of others. The Prisoner's fate is decided by others; control over life is rests with judges, jury or simple luck. There is hope, but no power to act. Decisions are being made but the Prisoner has little say in the matter.

This is something hindering your progress
The Shepherd

The Shepherd

(Reversed) Lack of concern for social niceties, unwillingness to play politics
Basic Interpretation:
Holding a laurel and a golden bowl up to the sun-dappled trees overhead, the Druid bears an expression of communal bliss on her face. She is in complete harmony with her surroundings and nature. She does not break the land to her will, but the land willingly gives unto her what she needs.
Responsibility, humility, responsibility faced alone, nobility in dedication
Basic Interpretation:
The Shepherd stands amidst his flock, defending them from the dangers of the world. He is ever vigilant, yet humble, taking his responsibility seriously and with sacred dedication. Even if he must walk this path and face its dangers by himself, he will do so until his time is done.
