1. You Represents you and your current state of being.

 
Chaos

Chaos is a card of plunging headlong into what awaits us, accepting that the outcome, whatever it may be, is the result of the choices we have made.

In a reading, Chaos is a challenge to embrace the chaos that accompanies change, for change is the essence of growth. Inaction leads to stagnation; argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours. All things begin in Chaos; this card challenges us to use the Chaos to create our own beginnings.

Keywords: Chaos Beginning Action Courage

 
2. Your Partner Represents the other person important to you.

 
Six of Books

The Six of Books speaks of transcendence. We have learned enough to be able to move up to a new level. Losing personal resources has done more than just teach respect; it has prompted us to seek new resources, and investigate new avenues.

In a reading, it may represent the benefit of life's lessons learned; a situation in which we have recovered from past adversity and now move forward, wiser, or perhaps a situation in which we have grown beyond some past disaster.

Keywords: Gain Progress New Learning New Ideas

 
3. Your Self-Image This represents the way you see yourself.

 
Union

Union is, as its name suggests, a reminder that things which seem to be irreconcilably opposed to one another may in fact be able to exist in harmony, each reinforcing the other. It serves as a lesson to us to see things, not as opposing poles, but as parts of the same whole, a whole which is greater than the sum of its parts.

In a reading, Union suggests a situation or attitude in which things superficially seem to be in conflict, but which are actually part of the same thing. It may represent seemingly opposing forces in the Querant's life which, viewed in another way, are really in harmony.

Keywords: Harmony Balance Holism

 
4. Partner's Self-Image This represents how the other person sees himself or herself.

 
The Library

The Library is a card of sudden change and catastrophy. The Schoolgirl, confronted with a challenge to the things she believes, responds by destroying the things she used to love. Similarly, this card may signal an abrupt, fiery, and catastrophic change in the your life, as the structures which no longer serve you come crashing down.

In a reading, the Library speaks to a situation when, dismayed by something which has happened to us, we destroy the things we love most. This is not always a bad thing; sometimes, the old must be demolished to make way for the new. But good or bad, it is a symbol of chaos and destruction, the end of something we love.

5. Your Partner's Perception of You A representation of how the other person sees you.

 
Disciple of Tentacles

Sometimes, fate places us in a situation where we have the ability to act, but it's not clear what choice we should make. The Disciple of Tentacles is surprised by the difference she sees in the way people respond to the Tentacle Monsters. She is free to act, but she is not sure what to do.

In a reading, this card indicates that we are in such a place. We have the ability to decide what to do, especially in a situation where our decision may affect the lives of others, but we lack the experience that helps guide the choice. Even though it may seem that the choice is perplexing, there is nothing to do now but to choose.

Keywords: Choice Action Inexperience Indecision

 
6. Your Perception of Your Partner A representation of how you see the other person.

 
Nine of Books

Nothing is more powerful, or more dangerous, than an idea whose time has come. The Nine of Books indicates something worth protecting--something that other people may find threatening. We must not allow fear or insecurity to stand in the way of protecting that idea, even if it means standing up to an angry mob.

In a reading, it suggests that we have something which we must defend, something which we can not afford to lose. Keeping it will not be easy. The true measure of our integrity is at test.

Keywords: Choice Gain Value Opposition Courage

 
7. Interference A representation of the problem in the relationship you have with the other person..

 
Adept of Books

The Adept of Books takes the adage "the pen is mightier than the sword" and makes it literal. She is someone whose knowledge is as powerful as a force of nature. This card speaks of reaching a level of mastery and respect where our ideas can become forces in their own right.

In a reading, it speaks of a time when our knowledge and skills have reached their apex, and we have gained mastery of an intellectual skill. Now is the time to lead by example, and become the change that we wish to see in others. It may also represent a person who has gained such a mastery--someone whose intellect is so ferocious that that person influences others on a large scale.

Keywords: Success Mastery Skill Leadership Choice

 
8. Strength A representation of the strength within your relationship with the other person..

 
Disciple of Chains

The Disciple of Chains represents the opening of Pandora's box--initiating change, perhaps naively, without completely understanding what lies within the box. Change is a powerful force; it is not necessarily bad or good, but it is definitely tumultuous. The Disciple of Chains is not sure what she will find within the box.

In a reading, it represents a decision which will change our lives, but which we make naively, without knowing what we are unleashing into our lives.

Keywords: Chaos Change Uncertainty

 
9. Outcome The outcome of the relationship.

 
Ten of Books

This card says it is time to pass on our knowledge to the next generation, and cautions us to make wise choices about what to pass on. The values and ideas that we hold will serve as the foundation for others, on which they will build their own lives; that foundation must be built with care.

In a reading, it indicates a situation where we have a role as a teacher or a distributor of ideas; we must be careful, for the effects we have on others will be profound.
