The Actor

- meaning of Symbolon card and archetype -

role play, self-representation, borrowed identity, "theatre", scenery
Interpretation of the card:
The king paces back and forth on a stage, reciting lines from his script. He is not a real king, but merely playing the part. He reads the words assigned to him by Hermes-Mercury, the messenger of the gods. A trapdoor is visible beneath his feet, in case he falters in his role or can't see the text clearly (he is too vain as a king to wear glasses). The audience watches from in front of the stage, aware that his crown and mantle are just theatrical props.

The meaning of the Actor Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card The problem
You have no idea that you are only playing one role in your current situation.  Your true self is hidden behind the role, and it may take you a long time to admit that to yourself.  In any case, you already suspect that you are not very real or original right now, but at this moment it is enough to know that you have only borrowed your importance, you are only playing it.  Of course, you're afraid that you might be exposed.  But who is hiding behind the mask?  Who is even still present?
​​​​​​​2) As the next cardWay through the problem
 Play your role. Take to the stage and perform to the best of your ability. Don't worry about being different from others. The stage is your world in this moment, so play it to the fullest. Does it feel false to you? Don't worry, that's what's expected of you on your journey. See yourself as valuable as your role.
3) as the last card︱​​​​​​​Result
You now play your role without associating yourself with it too deeply. You approach the situation with a sense of detachment, knowing that you are just playing a part in a larger performance. You are confident in your true self and can assert it in front of others without fear of being exposed.
