The University is a card that tells of the conclusion of an adventure. The Schoolgirl looks the same, but inside, she is irrecovably changed.
In a reading, the University might represent the Querant, forged anew and able to move with skill and wisdom. It may also represent a person in the Querant's life, someone whose experiences have built a character of strength, intelligence, and resolve. Metaphorically, it may stand for a situation that changes us, from which we will emerge as different people.

Sometimes, everything just... goes... wrong. The arrival of this card presents the grim news that we are done. The path is ended. Things have not turned out as we planned. People seldom plan for the end. As frustrating as this moment is, we may take solace in the idea that we can not be any more done; the dead need not fear dying.
In a reading, it represents the worst possible outcome. A catastrophic failure, some cataclysmic setback that awaits us.

The Scholar of Ribbons may indicate that you are about to embark on the process of creating your dreams--a process which will necessitate understanding those dreams, and also learning how to let go of conformity, naivete, and previous reliance on the rules and strictures of social convention.
In a reading, the Scholar of Ribbons may signal a time when we must let go of naivety, conformity, or adherance to ordinary conventions.

This card is a symbol of mastery of the force of change. The Adept of Change has gained total mastery over everything that holds her back, from within and without; now, no chain can touch her.
In a reading, it can be interpreted as a sign that nothing can stand in our way; whatever change we may wish to make is possible. No chain can hold us unless we allow it to. It may also represent a person in our lives who has gained this mastery, and who we can look to to free us from our own chains.

The Ten of Tentacles is the card of beginning and end, death and rebirth. The schoolgirl believes her ordeal is over; she does not see the new tentacle monster approaching her. She has reached the end of one cycle, and is about to begin another, regardless of how she may feel about it.
In a reading, the Ten of Tentacles reminds us that nothing ever ends; there is no growth that is ever final, no achievement which does not signal the beginning of something new.
