ARCHETYPES

Object or Artifact


Physical Nature of this Object
The Smith
The Smith Persistence, strength of will, patience
Basic Interpretation:
Persistence, mastery and strength of will are the solid groundings of the Smith. Like water shaping rock, the Smith employs weak and fallible flesh to forge and shape steel itself. Objects or even lives of great importance, beauty and duration can be forged by skill and time where raw power is lacking.
Aspect or History of this Object
Regret
Regret (Reversed) The past cannot be changed but current actions can change the future.
Basic Interpretation:
A woman stands looking out to sea at the ship that carries her love away. Too late, she has read his letter and thinks back with Regret on what may have been. She now knows her mistake - all she has is her emotions and the knowledge that what has passed cannot be changed.

Object Suggestions: A hammer, an anvil, a forge, a leather apron, nails.
