|The card on the far right represents the object being viewed, be it an idea, relationship, or the self. Fame: Personal glory and public accolade. Being treated as a celebrity by those you meet. The opening of doors and a flood of opportunities. An abundance of power and influence.|
|The card second from the right represents the physical vision: how the object is seen at a base or mechanical level. Capricorn: The embodiment of practicality and caution. Maturity and dedication to duty and responsibility. Patience and discipline hiding a reserved sense of humor.|
|The card in the middle represents the mental vision: the object personified and seen through a humanized perspective. Four of Swords (Truce), when reversed: Restlessness and mental disharmony. Deserting a struggle in progress. A temporary retreat from stress that turns into a permanent rout. A lack of vigilance that could lead to disaster.|
|The card second from the left represents the emotional vision: how passions and values are creatively stimulated by the mental vision. Five of Swords (Defeat): A success earned through personal degradation. Separation from friends brought about by an unfeeling and coldly calculated act. Temporary victory tainted by dishonor and providing fuel for eventual defeat.|
|The card on the far left represents the fourfold or mystical vision: still viewing through the previous three, we now add a spiritual element, revealing unseen aspects of the object. Nine of Wands (Strength), when reversed: Delayed preparations for an impending trial. Efforts compromised by traitors or saboteurs. The scattering of forces before the conclusive battle is fought. Ill health and faltering of the will.|
