Cards Four, Eight and Twelve (Upper right): These show the direction that the Querent's life will naturally follow, unless some action is taken to change this course.
Cards Thirteen, Nine and Five (Upper left): These are the possibilities for alternative action, which may be desirable or undesirable, depending on the other cards in the spread.
Cards Fourteen, Ten and Six (Lower left): These cards will assist the Querent in making whatever decision may be necessary. In the case of an older person, one past middle age, they mean past activities which bear on the question. In younger persons they indicate the future.
Cards Seven, Eleven, and Fifteen (Lower right): These show forces operating beyond the control of the Querent, which cannot be changed, but to which one can adapt.
