Would this same view hold true when dealing with Major Arcana? I was trying this out in a spread today and I got The Sun reversed. So the answer to unblocking this card would be then to return to the realm of the Moon, tune in psychically, see the unseen, realize all has not been revealed yet OR go forward to Judgement to assess the situation?

In my recent reading where I got the reversed Sun, your suggestion makes a lot of sense, and in fact I did both those things (look for the unseen and evaluate the known) as part of what I did to deal with the situation.

I have a question for you on majors....If you were looking at the majors in view of the THREE rows of seven: would I move from The Wheel Rx either back a single card to the Hermit or forward to Justice....OR do I move up and down the ROWS - so back one row from the Wheel to The Heirophant or forward one ROW from the Wheel to The Moon?

Oh my!! I liked the swich in number from the original post, but I find this about changing the suits? VERY INTERESTING!! Thank you both!!!
