Archetype: Prince/Princess*

When you draw the Prince/Princess card you are being asked to explore your relationship to the power of your work with others. Are you only pretending that you are serious about your work? Are you taking full responsibility for learning everything you need to know.

  • What do you want in life?
  • Can you visualize your dreams?
  • Do you trust yourself to bring them into reality.
The Illuminated Prince is power-in-training, aspiring to the higher realms that will someday be his responsibility. The Shadow Prince believe he is entitled to it all and often uses his relationship to the King to intimidate and manipulate others.

The Illuminated Princess is the feminine power, born into her rightful heritage as a sacred being. The Shadow Princess lives in a fairy tale world, wanting to be claimed by a stronger power that will make her life feel valid.

  • So, where do these two live in your life?
  • Are you studying to become the one in charge of your career, your calling in life?
  • Are you hiding behind the teacher/leader and not taking on responsibility?
The Shadow Prince wants you to believe that the world owes you -- how many times have you heard someone say ". . .  this job doesn't pay me enough to do . . . "?

In the Illuminated status of these two -- you know who you are, you know how to prepare for your future and the responsibility of that future. The Shadow team wants to hold you back from living in the full power of who you are.

I find myself telling clients to own their power. This is the 3rd chakra issue of ego. The issue of knowing and trusting that you are the only person in the world who can bring your gift into being and you own the personal power of that knowing. You are not egotistical -- you have a healthy ego that states "I AM" to the world.

So you go, all you Princes and Princesses -- own your power!

Namaste, roi
