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.
Knight/Prince of COINS Reversed
Stagnation, otiosity, inertia, laziness, stagnation. Also, carelessness of the kind that leaves tools lying about the work area to become a general hazard, and the reluctance to take great pains with any project.
Card 3: This card crowns you. It represents your aim or ideal in the matter, that which has not yet been made actual.
Three of COINS Reversed
Mediocrity, pettiness, the co-worker who must pull everyone else down to his or her own level in order to shine. In this sense, it may also indicate jealousy of another's achievements.
Card 4: This card is beneath you. It represents that which has already passed into actuality, what you have made your own.
XVII The Star
Hope, courage, inspiration, unexpected aid. Good health, spiritual love.
Card 5: This card is behind you. It represents the influences that are just now passing.
Knight/Prince of WANDS
A young person of fair hair and complection *or* a young person born under one of the Fire signs whose mind is swift and constantly in motion; hence: departure, absence, emigration or other change of residence; travel by air.
Card 6: This card is before you. It represents the influences that are coming into action now or in the near future.
Ace of WAND Reversed
Intellectual stagnation, antagonism towards new ideas. A blind alley. Impotence. Overly meticulous attention to detail at the expense of the whole. Superficial understanding, as is sometimes displayed by the "astrologer" at a party or in a bar. Dilettantism. Misdirection of sexual energies towards minors; dislike or abuse of children.
Card 7: This card signifies you. It represents your position and attitude in the matter.
Seven of COINS
Money, business, barter, but in all cases the card represents not the grand coups of Wall Street that net millions but the slow, steady growth of a small business. A garden or orchard will not bear fruit until its season, and also the toil of harvest. Recuperation after illness or injury. This is a slow, steady card, not a card of instant success - but success is indicated in due time.
Card 8: This card signifies your environment. It represents the influences of your position, your friends, your family and so forth.
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 9: This card signifies your hopes and your fears in the matter.
Four of CUPS
Dissatisfaction with the pleasures of the senses, re-evaluation of mundane achievements. World-weariness, ennui.
Card 10: This card signifies what will come. The culmination which is brought about by the influences of the other cards: The final outcome.
Five of COINS Reversed
Poverty in material things but riches in spirit, as St. Francis. Also, love (but probably temporary) and companionship.
