Upright: It is a card of loss, but something remains over; three have been taken, but two are left; it is a card of inheritance, patrimony, transmission, but not corresponding to expectations; with some interpreters it is a card of marriage, but not without bitterness or frustration. Additional: Generally favourable; a happy marriage; also patrimony, legacies, gifts, success in enterprise.
Reversed: News, alliances, affinity, consanguinity, ancestry, return, false projects. Additional: Return of some relative who has not been seen for long.
