1. The Significator
This card reflects the situation you are experiencing on an inner and outer level. In essence, this is where you find yourself at the present time.

2. Crossing Card
This is the card that “crosses your path” and indicates the apparent nature of a situation or problem. This card is not necessarily negative in meaning, but simply reflects the situation, which is crossing your path at the moment. What you are facing or dealing with is presented here. Often times, it reveals what may be “blocking” one’s path.

3. Crowining Card
What “hangs over you, the seeker.” The Crowning Card reveals what is out on the surface and immediately apparent in your life at the present time.

4. Base Card
What is at the base of matters in your life describes the situation on a more subjective, deeper level. Often times it reveals what is at the root of matters, or at the root of your psyche. This card may often come as a surprise, as you may not be aware of an unconscious motivation or issue which needs to be brought to awareness. We do not always act for feel things for the reasons we think, therefore, this card may seem to contradict the apparent reason for our dilemma or situation, but, don’t be fooled! Read deep into this meaning. You will gain tremendous insight out of it..

5. Past Influences
This card is revealing to you those influences or situation, which is passing out of your life. In the past it had been important, but now has been dealt with, allowing you to move on and forward. If this card is still reflecting something currently going on in your life, that you wish to pass, it is important for you to be able to “let go” of the situation. Try to release old resentments, anger, disappointment and other emotions. The new can only come in after all old “baggage” has been discarded.

6. Forthcoming Influences
This card represents what is coming into your life. This card is not a long-term prognosis of a “future outcome,” but rather a description of the currents at work in the immediate future. This can be a great eye-opener!

7. Contributor Card
Think of this card as an extension of card #1 (the Significator Card). This card is describing your attitude or mental state, which you are currently finding yourself, or where you are about to find yourself soon. This card often represents “what we put into a situation” - our efforts and influences we contribute to an issue.

8. Views of Others
This card describes how friends and family view you in your current situation in life. It reveals what we have been unconsciously doing to project this image to the outside world. Perhaps you are not getting the compassion, sympathy or support you hoped to receive from loved ones. Or maybe you are receiving more support than usual. It may contradict how we really feel, or it may honestly reflect your feelings in a current situation.

9. Hopes & Fears
This one card is very powerful, for it reveals what we hope for and also what we fear at the same time. In other words, all of us hope for the best in a situation but fear the worst will happen to us. Make sure to read carefully into this card, for it will offer you tremendous insight.

10. Final Outcome
This is the “final outcome” of your reading, as it is perceived at this time. It may cover a period of time for as long as six months or less. The word “final” can be very misleading, as nothing is ever “final” or “etched in stone” in life, so keep an open mind when reading his card.
