Complete Book of Tarot: The first card shows five youths engaging in spirited competition, mirroring quite closely the situation that prompted her to ask for a reading. The second card depicts a young farmer pausing to reflect on his crops (the seven pentacles) and making plans for the future direction of his efforts. The third card, the Page of Swords, sometimes appears when the querent is expecting or dealing with unwelcome news or advice. This Page is highly intelligent, clever, and resourceful. The tarot seemed to be saying that this student was indeed confronting stiff competition and would need to plan her future moves carefully, using all her intelligence and mental resources. After pondering this interpretation, she asked to draw another card to clarify the implications of the Page of Swords, and she selected the Three of Pentacles.

But in contrast to these historic decks, Matthews finds most modern decks harder to engage with.’ 10
