Possessing an aura of organization and order, THE SOVEREIGN is a model of proper behavior while exuding an untouchable quality (not so much in today’s society) of privilege and royalty. Under constant public scrutiny, the Sovereign is controlled, watchful, measured, and cautious with words and deeds. Connected with tradition and status, the Sovereign is an archetype of dignity, benevolence, and serenity. This archetype is often combined with others, such as the Sage, Seeker, Warrior, or Lover, to increase the specificity of the Sovereign’s style and perspectives.
