|The card on the far right represents the object being viewed, be it an idea, relationship, or the self. Aquarius, when reversed: An intractable and contrary eccentric, driven by destructive perversity. Detachment and lack of sympathy. Contempt for the emotional needs of others.|
|The card second from the right represents the physical vision: how the object is seen at a base or mechanical level. Two of Coins (Change): Balance and harmony achieved in a time of upheaval and transformation. Taking two steps forward for every one step back. Shifting the importance of projects and priorities to keep everything on track. A change in occupation or location.|
|The card in the middle represents the mental vision: the object personified and seen through a humanized perspective. Four of Wands (Completion), when reversed: Squandering a great and hard won victory through decadence and laziness. Failing to reward those truly responsible for an achievement. Using past accomplishments as an excuse to ignore current problems. Abandoning the very qualities that brought about initial success.|
|The card second from the left represents the emotional vision: how passions and values are creatively stimulated by the mental vision. Seven of Cups (Temptation): Daydreams and things seen in the glass of contemplation. The scattering of energies by strong desires and unrealistic goals. The pursuit of illusions and the dissipation of energy on false choices. Intoxication, delirium, and hallucination, leading to the negation of effort. Under rare and extreme circumstances, may indicate the revelation of transcendental spiritual truth.|
|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. Eight of Coins (Prudence): Dedicating yourself fully to a task. Learning a new craft or skill. Applying painstaking attention to detail. Industriousness and the efficient completion of tasks. Sticking with a project long enough to see it through.|
