|The card on the far right represents the object being viewed, be it an idea, relationship, or the self. Five of Coins (Worry), when reversed: Concern over finance leads to prudent action. Impending physical threat is met with calm and skill. Suffering and loneliness leads to spiritual growth. Stress is met without resorting to excess or the pursuit of oblivion.|
|The card second from the right represents the physical vision: how the object is seen at a base or mechanical level. Five of Swords (Defeat): A success earned through personal degradation. Separation from friends brought about by an unfeeling and coldly calculated act. Temporary victory tainted by dishonor and providing fuel for eventual defeat.|
|The card in the middle represents the mental vision: the object personified and seen through a humanized perspective. Earth: The established order and pattern by which the world is defined. The substance of all things, stable and resolute, resting firmly on the foundations of reality. The basis of all transactions, and hence of all value. The medium of sensual experience.|

Showing sympathy and providing shelter for others. Relying on intuition and imagination in personal affairs, and caution and shrewdness in domestic matters.|
