1. The Pros


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.

2. The Obstacles


Card 7
VICTORY

The card announces a near success. A success, some honors, a reward. A victory against an opponent or a competitor. The subject became the best in his field. A victory in a championship, or a contest in an election. Generally speaking, victory against adversity.
Against: the subject is going to be defeated by one stronger than him.

3. Your Situation


Card 6
THE LABYRINTH

The subject is faced with complex problems to solve, the steps to solve them forming a real maze. One can drown in a glass of water, not knowing how to untangle the web of challenges facing him. He needs help to get out, but he can find it.
Against: the complexity of the events is opposed to the projects.

4. The Evolution


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.

The Synthesis


Card 1
THE APPRENTICE

The card announces a start, a beginning or an apprenticeship. The subject is in the process of beginning studies or retraining (foreign language, computer science)
Auspicious: the card invites or approves this learning.
Against: there will be an obstacle to an apprenticeship or the card indicates that the subject lacks sufficient knowledge.
