- You (no reading, just a card)
- Base of the matter (presently, why things are)
- Past influences (the way you once were or certain things that affected you)
- Forthcoming influences (the way you will be in the future or things that will affect you)
- Where one finds oneself (your comfort zone, what you do, your goal in life, where your efforts are put forth)
- Views of others (how others view you)
- Hopes and fears (how you feel now or will feel)
- Final outcome (conclusion)
