|The card in the center represents the attitude you assume. Prudence: Carefully considering the circumstances. Avoiding an unnecessary or premature commitment. Developing a backup or contingency plan. Determining whether the solution is worse than the problem.|
|The card to the right represents the thoughts and feelings that underly your attitudes. Six of Swords (Science), when reversed: Conceit and intellectual pride. Being stuck in a problem which has no apparent solution. Frustration and anxiety that are left unsettled. Travel and exploration are delayed.|
|The card at the top represents how your attitude is evolving and will evolve in the future. The Hanged Man, when reversed: Life in suspension. Selfish, materialistic, and untrusting attitudes. Unwillingness to make necessary sacrifices. Going along with the crowd, and refusing to hear the inner voice. Concessions and appeasements that backfire.|
|The card to the left represents how others perceive your attitude. The Chariot: Victory through might. Advancement through bold action. Change through force. Order established through vigilance. A trying situation mastered by balancing opposing forces against each other. Discipline, individual effort and endurance will turn the tide.|
|The card at the bottom represents what you cannot confront or are hiding from yourself. Four of Swords (Truce): A time of tranquility and intellectual repose in the midst of a great struggle. A temporary retreat from stress to regather inner strength, reaffirm convictions, reorganize thoughts, and formulate a new plan. The need for vigilance in a moment of calm.
