The Prophet

Vanity - Discrimination - Purity

Who is this Archetype?

In a world where talk is cheap, the Prophet is able to discern what to share and what not to share. It chooses its words and messages wisely, knowing its voice is powerful and potent. The Prophet is a master of communication. It has the potential to cut or empower you with its words, always holding a charge--whether positive or negative--and can pierce through your heart and immediately be felt.

This archetype is extremely articulate when in the right mood. It’s naturally cautious about other people understanding it clearly. The words and actions of the Prophet have a profound emotional impact on others. The mutation potential comes through the tone and vibration of the voice, rather than the words themselves. 

A skill that must be mastered by the Prophet is discerning that which comes from the mind and that which comes from the heart. This discrimination can be pointed internally and/or externally. 

This is also the archetype of silence. It can use the auric power of silence to influence others. This archetype knows how to discriminate the real from the false and who and what is healthy. When it speaks, it’s always from the heart. This archetype recognizes when something or someone is not expressing the truth of the soul. It’s designed to spotlight that which is not authentic. It arbitrates between light and dark, able to bring messages from each realm with potency and accuracy.

The Prophet is the ultimate wordsmith.This archetype is a powerful energy that plugs into source--it channels and prophecies. It’s passionate, rich, and deep in its expression, with all of the juice and fire that art, creativity, and beauty bring humanity. It is new, transformational, and influential.

The Prophet needs archetype 22 (the Invitation) because this is a voice seeking to express a deep emotional truth. Because it’s acoustic, when the Prophet begins to talk, the emotional quality through its tone is heard, but until it talks, it won’t know. 

The Prophet is deeply associated with the arts—with music, with language, with poetry, with dance, with drama and above all, with human love.  

The Prophet dares to dream - sometimes unrealistically - of a fairer, more idealistic world. Its programming partner is the 11th archetype with its gift of Idealism. From pausing comes the potential to make great leaps in the evolution and expansion of human undertakings.

Pure intention


Achilles Heel:

Melancholy that there is no one worth telling anything to

Gene Key Patterns:

Victim of the need for perfection

Dilemma: Aloneness

Repressive Nature:


Elitism is vanity working undercover. You may agree with others outwardly but inwardly feel very differently from what you say. Often you refrain from making any comment at all, preferring to remain detached. This is the domain of the spiritually evolved—those few who have done a lot of work on themselves. Inwardly, you feel that you are clearer than most others around you, take great pride in being different, or in being beyond any creed or system. Such vanity ensures that you can’t make the leap that your inner being most longs for—the leap into permanent higher consciousness.

From the Gene Keys

Reactive Nature:


Malice stems from anger, which in turn stems from fear. You openly use your substantial vocal gifts to inflict pain on others. You usually feel put upon in some way and react maliciously without thinking about the damage your words or actions might do. You really know how to push other people’s buttons through the power of your voice. You can hurt people like no one else can. Your malice may not be premeditated, but it is usually brutal and ends in disaster.

Questions to Consider:

Do you feel stuck or at a standstill? 

What masks do you wear in your everyday life? 

Do you think that you are more evolved than others?

Do you have a good sense of discrimination? Give an example.

Do you know who or what is healthy for you? 

Are you using willpower or divine power to create? 

What playful things can you do to inspire your creative energy?


"I don’t shy away from anything that is authentic—no matter how messy it may be."
- The Prophet

The Prophet's Mantra

I am divinely guided.

I am grounded in the integrity of the truth

and I am driven by the myth of true love.

I speak the perfect words from the purity of my heart.

I radiate the beauty of who I am.

My voice is heard and valued.

Phone Backgrounds

EMBRACE your shadows. Sometimes our shadows just need attention and love to be transformed. An embrace is a hug. We pull it in; we do not push away. Hug until it blends and transforms inside of you, revealing the GIFT within. The gift is then RELEASED within you and outside of you. You EMBODY the Siddhi when this essence vibrates through your whole being.

Use these phone backgrounds as a reminder for you through the transit.
