Tarot Sentence:

Upright: Skill * wills * with design.

Inverted: Craft * manipulates * with deception


Special Guidance:

Mundane: A situation has been (or soon will be) presented that has all the inherent components of the manifestation of your desires. Take the best from it or move on it, because it is through this that a new potential will emerge.

Esoteric: You are only at the very first stage of your development and you must understand your place in the Cosmic Scheme of things. The Universe always gives more than you can conceive of or ask for…all you have to do is accept more. “Thou shall decree a thing and it shall be established unto thee.”

Best Course of Action: The result will be up to you. It depends entirely upon your intention, and desire, or how much you want it.

Outcome: You are going to begin again on a new foot, or with a new partner.
