The archetypes, as described by Caroline Myss, have some relationship with the Tarot. Here I look at The Prostitute and which Tarot cards can have a similar meaning.
Have you ever compromised yourself for personal or financial gain?
We do not have to sell our bodies, as in the traditional sense of the prostitute, but there are certainly times when we have conveniently set aside our usual morals when confronted with something we fear will create a physical or spiritual loss.
We use our influence or control to maintain the status quo or manipulate another to our way of thinking to change their course of action. We know it is not right but the overwhelming fear overrides our innate Soul messaging. When operating consciously we can use the power of the prostitute to influence others and situations.
We do this when we know the other person or situation just needs a little nudge to move forward. When we are working with the prostitute unconsciously we are manipulating, without foresight, situations and others to our bidding out of fear of financial or emotional loss. We feel it most strongly in the Solar Plexus as we are ignoring the souls message of what is ok.
During the process of working with the prostitute, use the Solar Plexus, listen to your gut feelings, the discomfort, until you can move into conscious and objective thinking, where you can see the bigger picture, not only for yourself but for the greater good. Working for the greater good of all requires courage, real “feeling the fear and doing it anyway” action.
The closest relevant cards of the prostitute in the Tarot Deck would be 3 of Wands, 4 of Pentacles, 8 of Swords, Queen of Cups and The Hanged Man
