Tough question


First, this King looks like he is considering something while the winds of change swirl around him. His pose is one of determination and resolve. What puzzles me is his armour; the shoulders, forearms and hands are well protected and the torso is "decorated" in loosely linked scraps of metal. The stone throne gives one the expectation of solidity, yet the wind and the non-armour on his body detract from his steadiness and solidity. Perhaps this contrast of symbols is what is important in this card -- keeping core portions of oneself stable in an environment of change despite ones vulnerability and perceived strengths.

So, for careers! A judge, a successful investment broker, a marriage counselor, a manager of some technology operation, a grade school teacher, a screen writer, a book critic, an editor, a TV viewer watching one of President Bush's speeches. Just some thoughts. Dave
