1. The Pros


Card 5
THE ILLIMUNATED PAGODA

A great idea can allow the subject to transform a business and grow, to make a scientific discovery or to undertake the creation of a work. This card helps inventors, creators, or artists.
Against: the work or the matter is trivial, dull, or lifeless. It must be given a new impetus.

2. The Obstacles


Card 20
THE TAO

The subject is one with his work. He identifies himself with his business or work. But he lacks meaning. He tends to 'hover' and disconnect from reality. As he accesses the summit of success, his knowledge or his art, he forgets that nobody can follow him and is likely to be left all alone. His staff or his bosses no longer understand, his work is no more accessible to the common man. The card indicates the subject must make an effort to become humble again.

3. Your Situation


Card 17
THE STAR

The card is a good sign. It evokes fullness, beauty, or fertility. It indicates that the business of the subject is prosperous, without a sign of stopping. It announces a fullness, either intellectual or artistic. The subject can feel satisfied with the result of his work, or the goods and works he has accumulated.

4. The Evolution


Card 2
THE WATERPORTER

Auspicious: the card is very favorable. It shows great potential, good foundations, large financial opportunities, opening credits. For intellectuals, it shows great knowledge, but also the possibility to become richer through intellect.
For everyone: inexhaustible ideas.
Against: the subject lacks basic information or qualifications.
Or: the subject is momentarily lacking in ideas.

The Synthesis


Card 14
BALANCE

The card is auspicious. It announces a great balance; material or intellectual wealth; a fair and balanced way to work or create. The subject has his feet on earth and knows how to use his imagination. He is diplomatic and knows how to use his gifts of communication and charm to succeed. Perhaps there is a slight readjustment required. But things are going well.
