Card 1: This card covers you. It represents the influences and atmosphere affecting you.
Eight of COINS Reversed
Questionable ethics; cunning and deceit though a surface of honesty is maintained. Vanity, greed. Ambitions not met through some lack in skill or character: this is the card of one who sees others promoted time after time while he or she remains at one level. In such a case, one's own qualifications should be examined closely before accusations of office politics or "sexual harassment" are hurled.
Card 2: This card crosses you. It represents your obstacles.
If favorable, opposing forces are not serious.
Eight of SWORDS Reversed
Release, freedom, movement; an obstacle is removed, allowing one finally to act. Opposition collapses, unforeseen opportunity.
Card 3: This card crowns you. It represents your aim or ideal in the matter, that which has not yet been made actual.
Queen of SWORDS Reversed
Spite, malice, ill-natured gossip, deceit; narrow-mindedness, bigotry, intolerance and the cruelty which derives from these.
Card 4: This card is beneath you. It represents that which has already passed into actuality, what you have made your own.
King of COINS
A dark-haired, dark-eyed man *or* a man born under one of the Earth signs, noted for intelligence and character. He may be a businessman, what used to be known as a "captain of industry." May indicate mathematical gifts, realizing intelligence; valor. A good husband and father, but may be inclined to workaholism.
Card 5: This card is behind you. It represents the influences that are just now passing.
Three of WANDS
Established reputation in some field, probably intellectual if wands predominate in the reading. Self-assertion, self-confidence, practicality and the financial rewards thereof. May be in a position to assist another.
Card 6: This card is before you. It represents the influences that are coming into action now or in the near future.
Knight/Prince of CUPS: Reversed
Beware of opportunity offered by another - remember the Trojans' experience with Greeks bearing gifts. Trickery, artifice, subtlety, and outright fraud. Rivalry.
Card 7: This card signifies you. It represents your position and attitude in the matter.
Ten of SWORDS Reversed
Profit, advantage, success, but none of these are permanent. Power and authority, probably usurped and also impermanent. A more temperate trend in the weather, but this, too, will not last.
Card 8: This card signifies your environment. It represents the influences of your position, your friends, your family and so forth.
Deuce of CUPS
Love, especially Platonic love which is more emotional and spiritual than physical: one's soul-mate. Friendship, harmony. Marriage, perhaps later in life. Joint efforts in magical or spiritual affairs. More often than not, I have found this card in spreads for partners in couples where physical attraction, emotional, and spiritual love are harmoniously balanced.
Card 9: This card signifies your hopes and your fears in the matter.
Six of CUPS
This is a card of nostalgia, of the golden summer days of childhood, of memories and reminiscences. The return into one's life of old friends. It may also remind one to bear in mind lessons already learned and apply them to present circumstances.
Card 10: This card signifies what will come. The culmination which is brought about by the influences of the other cards: The final outcome.
Six of SWORDS
Journey by water (not so common nowadays, but not impossible). Passage away from difficulties, but only with the expenditure of more effort. May also suggest the calm at the eye of the storm, a temporary respite in struggle.
