Card 1: This card covers you. It represents the influences and atmosphere affecting you.
Five of COINS Reversed
Poverty in material things but riches in spirit, as St. Francis. Also, love (but probably temporary) and companionship.
Card 2: This card crosses you. It represents your obstacles.
If favorable, opposing forces are not serious.
King of COINS Reversed
Avarice. A dull, plodding character. Others give perversity, ugliness, weakness: a dirty old man in all senses.
Card 3: This card crowns you. It represents your aim or ideal in the matter, that which has not yet been made actual.
Eight of WANDS
Speed. Rapid development of an undertaking; rewards are not long delayed. Also, in modern times, travel by air; arrival of a letter or package by air mail or overnight delivery (usually in combination with the Deuce of Coins); when Triumph XVI (The Tower) appears near it, the card may indicate the arrival of an electronically propagated message, such as by telephone, fax, e-mail, or news broadcast. In a less prosaic mode, the card is often said to represent "the arrows of love."
Card 4: This card is beneath you. It represents that which has already passed into actuality, what you have made your own.
VII The Chariot
In many decks, the animals pulling the Chariot are of different colors; in some, they struggle to go in different directions and only the strength of the driver holds them to the same course; hence: the conflict between spiritual and material, will (or wisdom) and passion, sense and sensibility. Also, frequently, travel by vehicle. Some suggest success for those engaged in artistic or spiritual pursuits, triumph over ill health and other adversities. Waite also suggests vengeance as a possible reading.
Card 5: This card is behind you. It represents the influences that are just now passing.
XVII The Star Reversed
Arrogance, haughtiness; impotence, stubbornness, pessimism, doubt; hope deceived, daydreams fail.
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.
Queen of SWORDS Reversed
Spite, malice, ill-natured gossip, deceit; narrow-mindedness, bigotry, intolerance and the cruelty which derives from these.
Card 8: This card signifies your environment. It represents the influences of your position, your friends, your family and so forth.
Eight of SWORDS
Imprisonment, inability to move whether due to indecision, fear of failure, or of social or professional sanctions. The horns of a dilemma. May indicate illness. In matters sexual, the card may indicate a tendency toward "kinkiness."
Card 9: This card signifies your hopes and your fears in the matter.
Deuce of WANDS Reversed
Disinterest in matters intellectual; desertion of a project. Ineffectual nit-picking; too much concern with method and not enough with the final product. Domination by others. Procrastination: I have frequently seen this card in spreads for students who habitually leave their homework until the last minute and then slap together something plausible in hopes it will fool the teacher.
Card 10: This card signifies what will come. The culmination which is brought about by the influences of the other cards: The final outcome.
XII The Hanged Man Reversed
Selfishness, absorption in physical matters; the relaxation of exterior strictures enable one to progress once again.
