3: Outcome A

4: Outcome B

2: The Choice

1: The Significator

 
1: The Significator represents you and your current state of being.

 
Interlude

This is the edge between innocence and knowledge, the shivering moment before plunging ahead. The Schoolgirl is no longer at a point of having things done to her; instead, she will choose.

In a reading, it suggests that the Querant, like the Schoolgirl, is poised on the edge of an instant that may change everything. The easiest choice will be to do nothing and let the moment slip by. This card reminds us that when we reach such a moment, action may not bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action. It warns of the need to make decisions even when we may not know what will come of them, if we are to be able to control our fates.

2: The Choice represents the choice confronting you.

 
Scholar of Chains

The Scholar of Chains is a card of change and the journey away from bondage (literal or figurative) toward freedom. This card indicates a situation in which we are either just becoming aware of or we have just begun to free ourselves from some form of bondage--perhaps a habit, or a failed relationship, or something else in life which has been holding us back.

In a reading, it tells us to look for a place in our lives where we are not free, and reminds us that we can learn to free ourselves.

Keywords: Freedom Choice Action

 
3: Outcome A The outcome if you make the obvious choice.

 
Mentor of Books

The Mentor of Books is no longer a student; she has progressed in her abilities to the point where she is now a writer herself. It speaks to a time when we are also in a role of expressing ourselves and beginning to rework our ideas. Others may perceive this success as luck or innate talent. They don't see the dozens of discarded pages for every one page that is published. They don't see the willingness to risk or experiment that have created this success.

In a reading, the Mentor of Books tells of our increasing mastery of knowledge, especially intellectual knowledge, and the success we can achieve because of it. It may also represent a person, someone of formidable intellect and capability.

Keywords: Success Respect Work Authority

 
4: Outcome B The outcome if you make the non-obvious choice.

 
Four of Books

The Four of Books is a card symbolic of failure to prioritize. This card may indicate a situation where we are at an impasse of our own creation. We are spending so much time trying to make everything happen at once that we can't get get anything accomplished at all.

In a reading, it may be a symbol of some situation where we have taken on too many things in a haphazard way, and now they are beginning to tumble down around us; or it may be a reminder to prioritize and work on doing just one thing at a time.
