Click for the meaning of each position and the interpretation of its card.
This card gives the influence which is affecting the person or matter of inquiry generally, the atmosphere of it in which the other currents work.
Cause for anxiety regarding money which it may be proposed to lend.
A large fortune.
A young man, leaning on his staff, looks intently at seven pentacles attached to a clump of greenery on his right; one would say that these were his treasures and that his heart was there.
It shows the nature of the obstacles in the matter. If it is a favourable card, the opposing forces will not be serious, or it may indicate that something good in itself will not be productive of good in the particular connexion.
Imprisonment, suspicion, doubt, reasonable fear, shame.
Duration of hatred.
One seated on her couch in lamentation, with the swords over her. She is as one who knows no sorrow which is like unto hers. It is a card of utter desolation.
It represents (a) the Querent's aim or ideal in the matter; (b) the best that can be achieved under the circumstances, but that which has not yet been made actual.
A card of the past and of memories, looking back, as--for example--on childhood; happiness, enjoyment, but coming rather from the past; things that have vanished. Another reading reverses this, giving new relations, new knowledge, new environment, and then the children are disporting in an unfamiliar precinct.
Obstacles insuperable. Widowhood. Separation.
Children in an old garden, their cups filled with flowers.
It shows the foundation or basis of the matter, that which has already passed into actuality and which the Significator has made his own.
Triumph, the excessive degree in everything, conquest, triumph of force. It is a card of great force, in love as well as in hatred. The crown may carry a much higher significance than comes usually within the sphere of fortune-telling.
Commencement of enmity.
A hand issues from a cloud, grasping as word, the point of which is encircled by a crown.
It gives the influence that is just passed, or is now passing away.
Negligence, absence, distribution, carelessness, apathy, nullity, vanity.
Inconsiderate Actions. Madness.
With light step, as if earth and its trammels had little power to restrain him, a young man in gorgeous vestments pauses at the brink of a precipice among the great heights of the world; he surveys the blue distance before him-its expanse of sky rather than the prospect below. His act of eager walking is still indicated, though he is stationary at the given moment; his dog is still bounding. The edge which opens on the depth has no terror; it is as if angels were waiting to uphold him, if it came about that he leaped from the height. His countenance is full of intelligence and expectant dream. He has a rose in one hand and in the other a costly wand, from which depends over his right shoulder a wallet curiously embroidered. He is a prince of the other world on his travels through this one-all amidst the morning glory, in the keen air. The sun, which shines behind him, knows whence he came, whither he is going, and how he will return by another path after many days. He is the spirit in search of experience. Many symbols of the Instituted Mysteries are summarized in this card, which reverses, under high warrants, all the confusions that have preceded it. In his Manual of Cartomancy, Grand Orient has a curious suggestion of the office of Mystic Fool, as apart of his process in higher divination; but it might call for more than ordinary gifts to put it into operation. We shall see how the card fares according to the common arts of fortune-telling, and it will be an example, to those who can discern, of the fact, otherwise so evident, that the Trumps Major had no place originally in the arts of psychic gambling, when cards are used as the counters and pretexts. Of the circumstances under which this art arose we know, however, very little. The conventional explanations say that the Fool signifies the flesh, the sensitive life, and by a peculiar satire its subsidiary name was at one time the alchemist, as depicting folly at the most insensate stage.
It shows the influence that is coming into action and will operate in the near future.
Arrival, approach--sometimes that of a messenger; advances, proposition, demeanour, invitation, incitement.
Young, fair man. A friend. The lover or the loved one.
Graceful, but not warlike; riding quietly, wearing a winged helmet, referring to those higher graces of the imagination which sometimes characterize this card. He too is a dreamer, but the images of the side of sense haunt him in his vision.
Signifies the person or thing about which the question has been asked, and shows its position or attitude in the circumstances.
Great joy, happiness, feasting.
Jealousy and trouble.
A man of dejected aspect is deserting the cups of his felicity, enterprise, undertaking or previous concern.
Your environment and the tendencies at work therein which have an effect on the matter €”for instance, your position in life, the influence of immediate friends, and so forth.
Perplexity, embarrassments, anxiety. It is also a caution against indecision.
A young man on a craggy eminence brandishing a staff; six other staves are raised towards him from below.
Authority, overseeing, secret service, vigilance, spying, examination, and the qualities thereto belonging.
A child. An enemy. Bad news. Delay.
A lithe, active figure holds a sword upright in both hands, while in the act of swift walking. He is passing over rugged land, and about his way the clouds are collocated wildly. He is alert and lithe, looking this way and that, as if an expected enemy might appear at any moment.
The culmination which is brought about by the influences shewn by the other cards that have been turned up in the divination.
Design, attempt, wish, hope, confidence; also quarrelling, a plan that may fail, annoyance. The design is uncertain in its import, because the significations are widely at variance with each other.
A man in the act of carrying away five swords rapidly; the two others of the card remain stuck in the ground. A camp is close at hand.
