BOTA (Builders of the Adytum)

1.   Tradition; conformity; belonging to a group; societal norms.   A "joiner."

2.   Marriage (the institution itself, as opposed to the interpersonal relationship).

3.   Enjoyment of the outer forms of religion.

4.   Excessive attention to the conventions of society.

    In some decks, this is "The Pope."

There are seven cards in the Rider deck that show a large, dominant figure "presiding" over two smaller figures standing below it (forming a triangle of sorts):
The Hierophant
The Lovers
The Chariot
The Devil
The Moon
Two of Cups
Six of Pentacles
