Position 7 and Position 8
Names used in these examples are not those of the actual participants.
1. You and Another Person
Cynthia didn't share what was on her mind until she saw Justice as Card 7. When I told her this card can mean having to accept the results of a past action, she volunteered that she was worried about being pregnant. The timing was just not right for her and her boyfriend; however, she was comforted to see the Lovers as Card 8. This card suggests that another person - probably her boyfriend - will be loving and supportive. The Lovers card also reinforces the sexual context.
2. You and a Group
I was concerned about a drug I was being urged to take as part of a treatment program. I drew the Five of Pentacles as Card 7 and the Hierophant as Card 8. I interpreted the Hierophant as the orthodox medical establishment with its strong belief in the value of drug therapy. The Five of Pentacles shows how isolated I felt refusing to go along with the program, even though I was running the risk of illness.
3. You and the Environment
You are an enthusiastic saver. You enjoy the security of having a ready supply of cash in the bank, but now a business venture has come your way. You wonder if you should take it. You draw the 4 of Pentacles as Card 7 and the Ace of Pentacles as Card 8. The 4 shows your tendency to save, but the Ace suggests that this venture may be offering you the chance for greater financial rewards.
