03 The Ship: travel, distance, trade or commerce. Can show leaving something behind.

04 The House: home, family, property.

05 The Tree: health, deep rooted, long-standing, karmic (but positive).

06 The Clouds: confusion, anxiety, lack of clarity.

18 The Dog: A man. Friend, partner, companion. Loyalty, trustworthy.

19 The Tower: A large building. Government, authorities, school. Isolation, being alone.

20 The Park: public places, the public, meeting, party, social gatherings.

21 The Mountain: obstacles and delays; blockage. Can be a “shield” between two cards. Standing alone; remote.

22 The Crossroads (Roads, Ways): decision is needed; at a point of indecision. Multiple (usually two).

23 The Rat: loss, theft, illness. An “eating away at” someone or something.

24 The Heart: love, emotions, feelings.

25 The Ring: marriage, commitment, contract and partnership.

26 The Book: secrets, the unknown; books and written documents; education, training.

27 The Letter: written communication (letter, email, text message), newspaper, paper-like documents (such as a diploma or will). Could be news.

28 The Lord (Man): The male consultant; male significant other for a woman; important male in the querent’s life.

29 The Lady (Woman): The female consultant; female significant other for a man; important female in the querent’s life.

30 The Lily: sexuality, family, maturity, the “zen factor”; a catch-all card in German tradition.

32 The Moon: Emotion, intuition, femininity, dreams, imagination, night time, artistic talent, fame and recognition.

33 The Key: the “yes card” of the deck. Destiny, solution, success. Meant to be.

34 The Fish: money, cash flow, the financial or economic significator. Water. Drinking.

35 The Anchor: work, one’s job. Stability and security.

36 The Cross: Pain, grief, a burden. One’s “cross to bear.” The sense of destined or karmic; suffering that is inevitable or must be. Not a happy card.



ADDING A FEW MORE THINGS I SEE:
Not JaseOnCards.

PARK is the same as Garden (20).
RAT is the same as MICE.
Bear can also be seen as grand mother or aunt. (Matriachal)(Feminine).
OWLS: Can also be about an older couple like grand parents also twins.
BOUQUET: Younger energy.
SNAKE: The other woman.
LILY: Sexual and virtuous. Depends on where it is in the GT and what card flanks it. I have only ever seen it as being sexual or as being impotent or abstinence. E.g. Mountain + Lily.
FOX: Cheating.

The Psychic/Spiritual/Intuitive/Esoteric cards are: Moon and Stars.
Astral Projection: Stars.
