Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: One more than the final single digit, one too many, more than enough, full completion of a cycle, readiness to move on and begin anew
Complete Book of Tarot: Card 6, the near future, was the Four of Pentacles, showing someone holding tightly to money and resources. Perhaps in the near future he would need to be saving his money for the purpose indicated by card 1.
Tarot for Beginners: Major Arcana cards outweigh all other cards in a spread, so if there are two interpretations at odds with each other, the interpretation of the Major Arcana card ‘trumps’ the other. They also raise the significance of the position they fall in, so that, for example, a trump card in your Past position means that aspect of your past is an important influence on your current situation. Any reversed Major Arcana cards may be indicating that youre oblivious, or at least not paying enough attention, to the relevant life lesson, and will find it hard to progress in your life until you address the concerns being indicated by the reversed card.

Reversed Cards: When the Four of Pentacles shows up in the blocked aspect, it might be safe to say that you are allowing your paranoia to get the better of you. There is a miserly element to this card even in its upright position, but here in the blocked aspect you have allowed your fear to become ruler of your domain. Nothing good can come of that. There is no doubt that being prudent at times shows wisdom. But living such a short life as a miser will only bring you misery and heartache. Blocking the flow of your resources will stagnate and poison you mentally, spiritually, and physically.
