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

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

The One of Books

The One of Books tells us the first step toward a new intellectual undertaking or intellectual knowledge is the most important. This card represents the very first inspiration toward a new cognitive undertaking--perhaps the learning of a new intellectual skill or the beginning of a new intellectual pursuit.

In a reading, it represents the earliest part of some new intellectual undertaking, or on a deeper level, some new inspiration that excites and guides us.

Keywords: Beginning Knowlege Intellect Understanding

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

Six of Tentacles

This card represents tenuous equilibrium. The schoolgirl has made peace with the fact that what is happening to her feels good. Similarly, the frustration and turmoil we have been feeling have melted away, to be replaced with acceptance.

In a reading, the Six of Tentacles speaks to being in a situation to which we are committed, but tells us that it is still possible to relax, to enjoy the ride even if we can't control what's happening.

Keywords: Balance Acceptance Commitment

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

Seven of Tentacles

This is a card of violation. The schoolgirl's earlier pleasure has gone as the Tentacle Monster makes her into its plaything. It signals a situation in which things may not go our way, or in which you will not reach the desired end.

In a reading, it indicates something--a situation, a person, an event--that makes us feel out of control, violated, or helpless. This card does promise some small hope: day follows night, and even though we may not win all of your battles, it is still possible to regroup, recover, and ultimately persevere.

Keywords: Violation Loss Conflict Failure

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

The University

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.

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

The Librarian

The Librarian represents intellectual knowledge, in its most raw and asic form. She acts as a gatekeeper; the knowledge archived all around her is her domain, and she is both the guide to that knowledge and the person who decides what knowledge will most benefit the people who come to her.

In a reading, the Librarian may represent access to secret, arcane, or specialized knowlege. There is a deeper meaning in this card; the Librarian knows that information without organization or purpose is merely trivia. Information by itself can't solve problems! It is up to us to understand how to synthesize information into knowledge.

Keywords: Intellect Knowledge

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

Nine of Ribbons

This card stands for a time when our sincerest desire is granted. We are free to claim the prize and dance in the ecstacy of dreams come true. In this card lies the promise that all we need to do is to grant the wish to ourselves.

In a reading, it suggests that we have triumphed; everything is aligned to make our dreams a reality.

Keywords: Triumph Accomplishment Success

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

Five of Ribbons

This is a card of constraint, of being unable to move effectively. It indicates some situation in which we are so wrapped up in one specific outcome of your dreams, one specific goal, that progress becomes impossible. When we convince ourselves that our dreams can only manifest themselves in one particular form and lose track of the idea that there might be many different ways our dreams can be realized, they cease to be inspirations to us and instead hold us back.

In a reading, this card tells us to look at the ways we have become so invested or attached to an outcome that our attachment paralyzes us, preventing us from being effective.

Keywords: Bondage Reflection Choice

9. Outcome The outcome of the relationship.

Two of Ribbons

The Two of Ribbons represents a need to choose, or a choice to be made. This card indicates a decision between competing goals, dreams, or ideals.

In a reading, it may stand for a situation or event where two competing things ask for our attention, only one of which can be choisen. It symbolizes a crossroads, either literal or metaphorical. It signals the need to choose the places in which to invest energy; we require focus, and must make a decision about which dream to follow or which passion to invest in.
