|The card on the far right represents the object being viewed, be it an idea, relationship, or the self. Seven of Coins (Assessment), when reversed: Labors abandoned before completion. Impatience, lack of effort, and the wasting of time. Idle and unprofitable speculation.|
|The card second from the right represents the physical vision: how the object is seen at a base or mechanical level. The Lovers: A caring and trusting relationship. Beauty and inner harmony. A decision calling for emotional control and faithfulness to spiritual values.|
|The card in the middle represents the mental vision: the object personified and seen through a humanized perspective. Eight of Cups (Indolence), when reversed: The realization that a matter thought to be important was actually of little consequence. Moving on from something in which you had invested great love and devotion. The start of an inner journey to find higher aspects of life. Reflection on what is truly fulfilling in life.|
|The card second from the left represents the emotional vision: how passions and values are creatively stimulated by the mental vision. Faith: Acting with certainty and confidence. Unfaltering loyalty and resolve. Diverse efforts brought to a single focus. Remaining true to your beliefs, even in the face of setbacks and crushing opposition.|
|The card on the far left represents the fourfold or mystical vision: still viewing through the previous three, we now add a spiritual element, revealing unseen aspects of the object. Three of Swords (Sorrow), when reversed: Unsettling news that helps you to distance yourself from a destructive relationship. Painfully honest communication that needs to take place. Not letting yourself be dragged by your emotions into a negative situation. A trust or confidence betrayed in an attempt to help someone in need. The revelation of a painful truth.|
