*** The next three are mine. I only spoke about this first one. Note the calendar of days in the background. I call this The Timekeeper.
Starting at the bottom you can see two children, a boy and a girl creating art, one with chalk on the ground, the other (left) in sand. Others noted the circles made from the red circle and the sun the boy is drawing and saw "cycles"...
On the far right is a clown, the part of me who laughs at my aging process, perhaps as the woman he is with is still young enough to still be looking good! (LOL I just thought of that now!)
On the far left is a very, very old crone of a woman, but her feet are still planted firmly on the ground and she can still see to knit. The fish in the middle is my joy of creativity NOW jumping up in the air and off the page! Me going outside the borders as long as I still can! The more I look at this card the more I like it!
This next card has a progression of time as well. I remember reading The Family of Man in the late 1950's early 60's perhaps? I was very moved by the photography of people from all over the world, many moods and times. The Traveler archetype comes to mind. The hand in the center and the crystal ball on the table are not me-s in that I do not believe in such things, nor do I have a crystal ball to tell me where my life is going. But the woman with the cats in the lower right corner is of an age and I see her and the woman in the center as wise and perhaps they represent my Wise Woman archetype. They seem to SEE ALL
and to be All Knowing. My third card was made quickly and did not get any attention from me yet at all. I see the Mother Archetype in the bottom left surrounded by little children. The couple going up stairs represent my anemia and animus (male and female parts). Maybe they are going upstairs to make more children. LOL My son and his wife want a child, so maybe the grandmother is pointing them in that direction.
The crowd of people in the background are all relaxed going in every direction but not in a hurry.
I leave the rest up to you for interpretation.
If these were your cards what archetypes of yours would they represent?
I enjoy all that we talk about. &&&&
AND we made history tonight
as the Health Reform Bill Passed!
Ted Kennedy is smiling down on us tonight!
And a lot of other people are smiling too for good reason.
