The "good" and "bad" of a Deteriorate, Negative, Divestive - FOUR

 

 MAJORS

 

MINORS

MINORS

Each Major Trump card is equal to two Minor Suit cards.

Coins and Staves show us the
Yang : Tangible : Transient : Crystalline : Particle Nature of Things.
Roses and Swords reveal the
Yin : Intangible : Perpetual : Amorphic : Wave Nature of Things.
Coins and Roses show us the
Yang : Positive : Ameliorate : Investive path of these two sides.
Staves and Swords show us the
Yin : Negative : Deteriorate : Divestive path of these two sides.
Both Ameliorate and Deteriorate paths have
Moderate ("good") and Extreme ("bad") possibilities to consider.

It's a matrix SYSTEM! It has many layers, many levels.

This page describes the Moderate and Extreme of a deteriorate Four (4). I leave it to you to extract the yin from the yang from each Moderate and Extreme! Then, extract the yin and yang from each Moderate and Extreme of an Ameliorate Four (4)!

Subjective Iconic Names and Titles:

Majors: The Villain and The Victim:
Minors: The Destructive Event and The Shaky Foundation

Elaboration on Key Words:

Major: --------------------
-
Malevolence ~ Fear - These people are powerless and they know it, and they live in constant fear every day of their life.

The Villain:
-
Deleterious ~ Saboteur ~ Destroying - Being a destructive influence may seem empowering because of how it can change other people's lives, but it's really just a cry for help from someone who feels disempowered or impotent.

The Victim:
-
Feeble ~ Mutant ~ Succumbing - These people are feeble minded and feeble bodied. The slightest amount of pressure and they crack. They are a salesperson's dream client, because they will succumb to any pitch. You can sell them anything. You can lead them anywhere.

Minor: --------------------
-
Deteriorate Event ~ Unstable Foundation - It is easier to destroy than it is to build. These people are weak, and will always chose the easiest path in life. Whatever they do will lack foundation and probably collapse.

Stave:
- Devistating ~ Collapse ~ Decimating - These people are "The Big Bad Wolf" incarnate. They will huff and puff and blow your house down.
- Lackadaisical ~ Lethargy ~ Loafing - These people are usually lazy and indolent. They don't like to work too hard at anything. They are most likely to be "resting on their laurels" (if they have any). They are lazy and have an uncanny ability to get other people to do their work for them... really, it's quite amazing.

Sword:
-
Shaky ~ Timidity ~ Corrupting - They are wholly uncommitted and wishy-washy. They haven't the courage to make any kind of commitment. They are corrupt. They will change the game in the middle and pull the rug out from under you.
- Ineffectual ~ Impotence ~ Cowering - These people may make a lot of noise, but that's just to cover up their feelings of vulnerability and fear. They are ineffectual leaders, because they are not very organized. They do not exude confidence. They are cowards.

--------------------
