The middle row begins, ends and has as middle card the three virtues -
Strength - Justice - Temperance - holding, as it were, the vissisitudes of fate: time, fortune, punishment, death.

The second rank of seven defined by the three virtues is also discussed in some other threads, for example post 29 in this thread:

Although dealing with the traditional Marseille order Justice-Fortitude-Temperance rather than Waites order. I am tempted to call this middle ranking of seven cards the 'mirror of happiness', in that it has some comparison with allegories of happiness.
