|The card on the far right represents the object being viewed, be it an idea, relationship, or the self. The Chariot, when reversed: Ineffective use of force. Might turned against the weak or the righteous. Senseless violence and warmongering. Lack of discipline and poor direction fan the flames of a situation already out of control. Advance without consideration of the consequences for others.|
|The card second from the right represents the physical vision: how the object is seen at a base or mechanical level. The Lovers: A caring and trusting relationship. Beauty and inner harmony. A decision calling for emotional control and faithfulness to spiritual values.|
|The card in the middle represents the mental vision: the object personified and seen through a humanized perspective. Five of Swords (Defeat), when reversed: Refusing to achieve success through personal degradation. Friendship maintained through the abandonment of a dishonorable gain. Slander and infamy avoided.|
|The card second from the left represents the emotional vision: how passions and values are creatively stimulated by the mental vision. Taurus, when reversed: Stubbornness and inflexibility in all matters. Greed and obsession with material things. Being jealous, possessive, and resentful.|
