|The card in the center represents the attitude you assume. Temperance: Calm and restraint. Self-control, patience and tact in handling situations. The act of applying balanced spiritual and psychic forces to physical life.|
|The card to the right represents the thoughts and feelings that underly your attitudes. Three of Wands (Virtue): Personal fortitude and strength of character. Accumulated power set in motion towards a distant goal. The initiation of an enduring partnership based on absolute trust. Honor maintained in a time of desperate struggle. Taking full responsibility for a decision, and bearing the solitude of leadership.|
|The card at the top represents how your attitude is evolving and will evolve in the future. Four of Cups (Luxury): Being surrounded by love and devotion but taking it for granted. Ignoring the real and longing for the indefinable. Apathy and disengagement from the world.

|The card to the left represents how others perceive your attitude. Air: Absolute clarity of thought and freedom from constraint. A playground of infinite expanse in which anything can be dissected until it is understood. A knife edge of infinite sharpness that can slice through matter, energy, or emotion to reach the heart of a matter. The calm and effortless application of absolute focus to any concern.|
|The card at the bottom represents what you cannot confront or are hiding from yourself. Aquarius, when reversed: An intractable and contrary eccentric, driven by destructive perversity. Detachment and lack of sympathy. Contempt for the emotional needs of others.|
