The Believer Archetype

Upright Meanings: love, happiness, celebrations, new relationships, joy, fertility, good health, conception, pregnancy, beauty, new beginnings, new romance

Getting The Believer upright shows that it’s time to let loose of whatever emotional baggage you have and start living your life to the fullest. This is a card of dreams and new beginnings – a chance to start fresh. It might come in the form of opening yourself up to the possibilities of new relationships, romantic or otherwise, that have the ability to make you emotionally fulfilled. The release indicated by this card may either be spiritual or emotional, depending on what you are going through. The Believer may come to a reading after a long period of being lonely or enduring something that deeply hurt you emotionally and it’s appearance may be there to herald the turning over a new leaf.

Reversed Meanings: sadness, blocked or repressed emotions, infertility, unrequited love, hesitancy, miscarriage, breakups, pregnancy issues, selfishness, pain, egotism, bad news

When The Believer is overturned, the image here is clearest – the waters pour out of the cup, it becomes empty, the gift of its waters are being wasted. Seeing The Believer upside down during your reading means you have been enduring emotional instability or pain for some time. There is a loss that is indicated here and perhaps something that has meant much to you is no longer giving you the joy that it once had.
