The Incidental Tarot - "A posse ad esse"  From possibility to actuality

The Archer

A determined young man stands poised, Arrow drawn and ready to shoot. He wears a tunic of purple over his protective chainmail shirt, and a single golden circlet holds back the locks of his dark red hair. The role of the Archer can be a male or female, and is that of the Warrior soul; the activist, the fighter, the champion. He is always at the ready to defend his people and his home. His is a dynamic, charismatic personality. He is confident, ambitious and idealistic, and holds his honor as a primary virtue. The Archer is a loyal and trustworthy friend, and can often find himself in the role of peacemaker between conflicting parties. As an incarnation of the fire element, the Archer is always on the move; he loves travel and adventure, often preferring the outdoors and physical activity to the more genteel leisurely pursuits.

Reversed: A young person whose attributes match the Archer’s, but whose influence is arrogant, entitled and forceful. The Reversed Archer tends to react with defiance, adding fuel to the fire of conflict, rather than working to act honorably and peaceably, and to resolve issues.
