Here is one possible approach to interpreting the Yin Yang spread: Look at Cards 1 and 2 to get an idea of the basic conflict.
Examine each side separately so that you understand them. For Side A, look at Cards 3-5-7 first. For Side B, look at Cards 4-6-8. Consider these pairs:
• Cards 3+5 (and 4+6) to see how each side's public stand compares to its real agenda
• Cards 5+7 (and 6+8) to see how each side's conscious thoughts and feelings compare to its unconscious ones
Compare the two sides. Consider these pairs:
• Cards 3+4 to see how each side may view the other
• Cards 5+6 to see what both sides are really thinking and feeling
• Cards 7+8 to see what the deeper motivation is for each side
Compare the outcomes (cards 5, 6 and 12). Who will be happy, who will be disappointed?
• Card 12 - where the conflict is headed currently.
• Cards 5+12 - how Side A's ideal compares to the actual outcome.
• Cards 6+12 - how Side B's ideal compares to the actual outcome.
Consider the guidance. (Cards 9, 10 and 11). What does each side need to do to reach its goal and achieve a mutually satisfactory conclusion?

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
