Within each one of us is a variety of personas, or archetypes, that we step into depending on various circumstances in our lives. For example, a baby cries and the man becomes a mother. A female CEO calls a meeting to order and steps into her masculine side. We use our creativity and enter playful, childlike, artist territory.
The Destiny Card system can help us understand our inner man, woman, and child through the King, Queen, and Jack of the suit of our Birth Card. When we need to, we layer on these archetypes and we act from this space.
Each Royal Archetype has a distinct personality, as do the suits themselves so we’ve pointed those differences out in each report. Otherwise, here’s generally when we step into each archetype:
Women tend to inhabit their Queen as a default. She will be a strong ... ((( keep reading or watch the video for more! )))
backdrop to her personality. She will be in her King when when she is managing a business or in a leadership position. The King can also be her confidence place when she feels like ‘she has it all together’.
The Jack is her creative, innovative aspect. When she is designing something original she will go to the Jack. Manipulation and deception are also the domain of the Jack, as are being irresponsible, untethered, and humorous. Jacks know how to stop caring about big ‘important’ stuff, how to be selfish, and how to make fun of everyone.
Men tend to inhabit their King as a default. Kings have the big picture, and are generally pragmatic and logical. They like to get shit done!
The Queen, for the men, is his feminine side; emotional development and healing, ‘mothering,’ and nurturing.
All men love their inner Jack. They tend to hold onto this archetype as their inner child and adolescent, and retain it as a kind of fallback, with the exception of men whose birth cards are Kings.
The Royal Archetypes in Romance
The Royal Archetypes are especially helpful to explore when courting or being courted as we tend to step into them in romantic situations. The sexual dance requires the Jack for both men and women.
As we mature into relationship, we tend to gravitate to the King and Queen (men and women respectively). As the relationship develops, the Jack will determine how we act out in childish ways.
And finally, the relationship will mature through old patterns as each gender explores the opposite archetype. As women find their true power and confidence in their King, and men find their emotional expression and healing in their Queen, they can stop trying to ‘manage’ each other and get on with living as two whole beings.
The Jack as the Inner Kid
The Jack is the card of youth and both genders tend to use it up through adolescence. To understand children, it would be wise to read the Jack of their suit. The Heart and Club Jacks tend to experience more turmoil in childhood, and will also be more creative/right brained. The Diamond and Spade children will be a bit more left brained, especially as they enter adolescence, and diamond children will be especially tender as children.
