Detailed Reading


Card 1 Represents an important element of the past


Card 1: Past

The Hanged Man
The Spirit of the Mighty Waters

Upright Interpretation

The reversal of a situation brings powerlessness, doubt,
reunification, brings stillness and reflection. The head the rational mind - no longer controls so that a new and greater sense of life can emerge. Old pattern of behavior will die and with willingness and a full acceptance of the suffering that might be required implies an acceptance of waiting in darkness. This situation opens ourselves to life and life can hurt us, we feel terrible vulnerable. But this price of giving up our defenses and making the journey into loneliness seems to be necessary for any real sense of what supports us - the true faith can only be gained through risking ourselves in life.

Flexibility of mind and a willingness to adapt to changes. Sacrifice in the present to reap benefit in the future. A waiting period. Rebirth. Sacrificing one thing to obtain another. Circumstances literally turned on their head.

The Hanged Man

Card 2 Represents a deciding element of the present


Card 2: Present

Four of Swords
The Lord of Rest from Strife

Upright Interpretation

A quiet time of withdrawal and contemplation, a period of introversion and reflection, of emotional recuperation after the outbreak of conflict in the Three. It means accept solitude and rest from sorrow so peace of mind and liberation can happen. Here we have conventional thinking, being confident that one's traditional approach will resolve all demanding situations. Dogma, law, truce and compromise for social harmony.

Retreat, withdrawal, peace established through arms. Rest, recovery, hospitalisation, recuperation from battle and relief from anxiety or sorrow.

Four of Swords

Card 3 Represents a deciding element of the the future


Card 3: Future

The Emperor
Son of Morning: Chief Among the Mighty

Upright Interpretation

Father who embodies our spiritual ideals, our ethical codes, a god of inspiration and sudden creative vision, a revelation of the truth. Self-sufficiency, authority and ambition which drives us to achieve and the discipline and foresight necessary to accomplish our goals. The father within us also fosters self-respect, because it is this part of us which can take a standpoint from which to meet life's challenges. Responsibility as power, his strength can create and build. Pioneer, adventurer, urge for action, self-confidence and recognition, executive power, success, optimism, fulfillment of wishes.

Competitiveness, forcefulness in development and execution. Authority, structure, governmental and corporate identities. Powerful individuals, ambition together with the possibility of long term achievement.
