the card in the center represents the attitude you assume. the world egg (the fool), when reversed: apathy, negligence, and dangerous carelessness. unquenchable wanderlust. obsession with someone or something. losing all sense of proportion. foolhardy adventuring and lack of interest in critical matters. immature or unrealistic ideals. strange impulses and desires coming from unexpected sources. vanity, delirium, folly, and oblivion.
the card to the right represents the thoughts and feelings that underly your attitudes. agwe (four of swords): 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. may suggest a withdrawal from the material world to find spiritual guidance.
the card at the top represents how your attitude is evolving and will evolve in the future. masa (nine of swords), when reversed: mental anguish or ill health endured and overcome. refusal to be dragged down by the dishonor of others. attempting to avert a shameful or regrettable act. faithfulness, patience, and unselfishness. may indicate the narrow avoidance of a death or other catastrophic loss.
the card to the left represents how others perceive your attitude. dr. john (the magus): mastery over word, mind, and matter. the ability to turn ideas into actions, handle problems, and control one's life. the initiation of new projects, great works, or a new way of life. eloquent and moving communication. arcane and eldritch technologies.
the card at the bottom represents what you cannot confront or are hiding from yourself. nan nan bouclou (two of swords): contradictory characteristics brought together as a means of resolving a conflict. refusing to be ruled by negative emotions. strife brought to a close through clarity of mind and restraint of force. turning a blind eye to the minor infractions of others.
