Seven of Books

This card portends a situation in which someone is deliberately and intentionally keeping us away from the resources that we need. The seven books the Schoolgirl requires are locked up, unavailable to her; similarly, the people who have direct access to those resources have chosen not to provide them to us, so some other strategy is necessary.

In a reading, it tells us of a situation where we are being thwarted because we can not get access to what we need. Someone else holds the keys. We must think of another way.

Keywords: Conflict Frustration Opposition Setback

 
2. Your Partner Represents the other person important to you.

 
Seven of Chains

This card signals a time of tension in a relationship, either from within or from without. The chains pulling on the women represent forces such as jealousies, insecurities, squabbles, or gossip, trying to separate the people; these may be forces from inside the relationship (such as jealousy or insecurity) or from other people (such as envy or rumormongering). This card reminds us that it is time to take charge of the forces that are pulling you in all these different directions.

In a reading, it may represent some part of the Querant's life where the Querant is being pulled in contradictory directions, and must find a way to assert control over those contradictory forces.

3. Your Self-Image This represents the way you see yourself.

 
The Headmaster

The Headmaster is a card of directed action. He is in charge of the university; his rulings must be obeyed. He tells us to become proactive; to make a decision and follow through on it, not to be passive, idle, or dreamy.

In a reading, the Headmaster may be a call to action. He tells us that our lives belong to us; it is up to us to make what we want of them. The Headmaster may warn us that many thing, even unpleasant or traumatic things, may serve as a call to action.

Keywords: Action Ambition

 
4. Partner's Self-Image This represents how the other person sees himself or herself.

 
Eight of Tentacles

This is a card of both chaos and opportunity. Just as the schoolgirl is completely overwhelmed, but throught it all she also feels pleasure, the Eight of Tentacles symbolizes a circumstance in which we are overwhelmed, bombarded from all directions, but also promises that we can find a way to turn the tumult into something positive, even if the alchemy of that transformation is not understood.

In a reading, it is both a statement and a promise: a statement that some situation exists or may exist in which we are inundated by a tide that threatens to sweep us out to sea, but also a promise that we can find a way to turn it to our advantage, or at least experience something positive from it.

5. Your Partner's Perception of You A representation of how the other person sees you.

 
Three of Ribbons

This is a card of choices not taken. Every choice we made carries the weight of the choices we haven't, which are carried away like ribbons in the wind. When we reach for something, the things we have not chosen fly away and are lost forever.

In a reading, this card suggests that possibilities gained always imply possibilities lost, and that we must be aware of the things that are being given up whenever we make a choice. The card may represent those things, or warn us that the things we have chosen against, we may never be able to choose again.

Keywords: Choice Acceptance Sacrifice

 
6. Your Perception of Your Partner A representation of how you see the other person.

 
Escape

On one level, this is a card about quick thinking and lightning reflexes that save one from a bad situation. On a deeper level, it may also symbolize unexpected agility and reserves of strength.

In a reading, Escape may represent some adversity in your life, which nimbleness, quick thinking, and strength can fight off. It almost always represents an external, rather than an internal, threat.

Keywords: Quickness Agility Conflict

 
7. Interference A representation of the problem in the relationship you have with the other person..

 
Six of Books

The Six of Books speaks of transcendence. We have learned enough to be able to move up to a new level. Losing personal resources has done more than just teach respect; it has prompted us to seek new resources, and investigate new avenues.

In a reading, it may represent the benefit of life's lessons learned; a situation in which we have recovered from past adversity and now move forward, wiser, or perhaps a situation in which we have grown beyond some past disaster.

Keywords: Gain Progress New Learning New Ideas

 
8. Strength A representation of the strength within your relationship with the other person..

 
Four of Tentacles

The Four of Tentacles is a card that signifies a point of commitment. We have reached a tipping point. Now, like the schoolgirl who is held immoble, there is no way we can avoid our fate; we are committed to that decision, and can't turn back.

In a reading, this card speaks loudly and powerfully to a situation in our lives where our past decisions have become irrevocable. We are now trapped, and whatever happens will happen. The course is set.

Keywords: Choice Commitment

 
9. Outcome The outcome of the relationship.

 
Two of Chains

The Two of Chains is a card of new love or a new connection taking form. It indicates the direction of energy toward a new romance, a new friendship, or a new relationship of some kind.

In a reading, it may symbolize a new connection (especially a new love), but that does not necessarily have to be literal, as in a new romantic relationship; it might also represent a new intellectual love, a new pursuit, or the beginning stages of some other kind of love.
