If the client acts in some ways, it will make them happy, or unhappy, or rich or poor. And there's at least one course of action they can take in the situation which will have an unknowable result - that is how I see the covered option. I've not really paid attention to the red glow before: depending on your own personal inner symbolism you might link red with blood and therefore vitality and energy, or you might link red with stop, and therefore with risk. I think that's down to your personal inner symbolism regarding the colour. I'd go blood/vitality/healing/energy-force, myself, but that's just me.

This is the way I used to translate this card.....as options for the querent, but upon further consideration, I decided that all those things in the cloud did not relate to reality....so ultimately, they cannot be real options inasmuch as they are just fantasies.
