Upright: The card foretells material trouble above all, whether in the form illustrated–that is, destitution–or otherwise. For some cartomancists, it is a card of love and lovers-wife, husband, friend, mistress; also concordance, affinities. These alternatives cannot be harmonized. Additonal: Conquest of fortune by reason.
Reversed: Disorder, chaos, ruin, discord, profligacy. Additional: Troubles in love.
