The Shepherd

Earth, Waxing Gibbous


Responsibility, humility, responsibility faced alone, nobility in dedication

Reversed Meaning:

Boredom, simplistic life

Basic Interpretation:

The Shepherd stands amidst his flock, defending them from the dangers of the world. She is ever vigilant, yet humble, taking his responsibility seriously and with sacred dedication. Even if she must walk this path and face its dangers by himself, she will do so until his time is done.


A shepherd’s crook, simple clothes, simple food, livestock.


An oath-bound person;  a good and humble leader reassuring others about the world.
