Favorable: Money, business, barter, but in all cases the card
represents not the grand coups of Wall Street that net millions but
the slow, steady growth of a small business. A garden or
orchard will not bear fruit until its season, and also the toil of
harvest. Recuperation after illness or injury. This is a
slow, steady card, not a card of instant success - but success is
indicated in due time.
Unfavorable: Impatience. Cause for anxiety due to
exterior factors (drought or excessive rain, a slump in business and
the like). Delay in achieving one's goal.
Favorable: Plan, design, blueprint for action, all of which
should be examined for seen or unseen flaws which may cause them to
fail. Theft, probably without violence such as burglary or
fraud: once again, a certain amount of planning is indicated
rather than the action of impulse. Unstable effort, partial
success. A journey by land.
Unfavorable: Good advice as from an expert in the field,
counsel, instruction; but, on the other hand, the exposure and

of the "couch potato" who loses him or herself for hours in the
glittering unrealities of the television screen to the exclusion of
all other activities or relationships.
Unfavorable: Desire, will, determination; a project about to
Favorable: In the intellectual fields, wordy strife or
competition: "sound and fury signifying nothing." In
mundane affairs, competition, haggling. It is, however, a card
of eventual success: one holds the high ground, so to speak,
and will be able successfully to defend it.
Unfavorable: A caution against indecision and against
hesitation to move through fear of appearing a fool, or of causing
damage to another; a warning against over-sensitivity. The
person whom one fears to hurt may not harbor reciprocal feelings.
