It is considered by many to be the single most powerful divination tool on the web, providing deep insight, rich in ancient symbolism, to any question you may pose.

|The card on the far right represents the object being viewed, be it an idea, relationship, or the self. Three of Cups (Abundance), when reversed: A time of shallow overindulgence, followed depletion. The successful but utterly unfulfilling conclusion of a matter. Satisfaction from sensual pleasures divorced from any sense of love. May indicate problems prematurely dismissed or a victory claimed before it is certain.|
|The card second from the right represents the physical vision: how the object is seen at a base or mechanical level. Temperance: Calm and restraint. Self-control, patience and tact in handling situations. The act of applying balanced spiritual and psychic forces to physical life.|
|The card in the middle represents the mental vision: the object personified and seen through a humanized perspective. Charity, when reversed: Kind and charitable acts motivated by vanity or desire for personal gain. Using a position of good fortune to make someone less fortunate dependent on you. Ill-conceived good intentions that make matters worse. A second chance with an expectation of failure.|
|The card second from the left represents the emotional vision: how passions and values are creatively stimulated by the mental vision. Two of Wands (Dominion): Established power and influence over others. Setting goals and a vision for the future. Coming to grips with the impact of past decisions, considering the current state of affairs, and developing a plan of action. Responsible leadership.|
|The card on the far left represents the fourfold or mystical vision: still viewing through the previous three, we now add a spiritual element, revealing unseen aspects of the object. Fame: Personal glory and public accolade. Being treated as a celebrity by those you meet. The opening of doors and a flood of opportunities. An abundance of power and influence.|
