Divinatory Meaning:

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.

Reversed Meaning:

Disorder, chaos, ruin, discord, profligacy.
