The Tower
Keywords: Overcoming crisis (upright) Crisis ongoing (reversed)

The Tower indicates a shock or crisis. When the card is upright, it means the crisis is overcome. The reversed meaning implies the crisis is still ongoing. The symbolism of the lightning striking the tower is clear. The Tower is an aggravated condition that relates to The Hanged Man

The Star
Keywords: Attracting positives (upright) Attracting negatives (reversed)

The Star implies creating the right conditions for a desired end result to occur. When upright it indicates that as possible. The reversed meaning indicates conditions may not be right to achieve the desired result at the time of the reading.

The Moon
Keywords: Clear intuition (upright) Unclear intuition (reversed)

The Moon is related to the astrological meaning relating to one`s emotions. When upright it shows the feelings are in sync. When reversed it implies that one may not be able to trust one`s intuition due to too much logical, analytical thinking.

The Sun
Keywords: Happiness (upright) Unhappiness (reversed)

The straightforward meaning of happiness is the simple message The Sun conveys. When upright it means that the conditions, as shown by nearby cards in the reading, are positive. When reversed, it means there is some delay that may be a source of some degree of unhappiness.

Keywords:Positive decision (upright) Indecisive (reversed)

The Judgement card shows a positive decision is being made in regards to the cards surrounding it in the reading. When reversed, it implies that a wrong decision is likely, or that no decision at all is being made.

The World
Keywords: Travel, expansion (upright) Delayed travel (reversed)

The World card indicates that travel will play a major role in events. When upright it means that travel will go well. Any desire for progress in business or any other area of your life is also well-aspected.   When reversed, it implies that delays are certainly to be expected in the above.
