Upright: This card can represent deceit or manipulation. It literally can refer to stealing something in order to benefit yourself, disregarding the consequences and having confidence you’ll get away with it. You may be manipulating a situation for your own gain, using clever tactics as you maneuver the situation. On the other hand, this card may represent gathering resources and information. Use caution to ensure that you are not taking from someone else while you gather ideas. This card may mean that you are going to get caught in a lie or deceit, or it may point to your worry that you will get caught for some perceived wrongdoing. It could show a potential run-in with authorities in which you are assumed guilty whether you are or are not.
Reversed: If this card is pulled in a reverse position, it can mean that you are racked with guilt about something you have already done. You may be second guessing your choices, perhaps because you have been caught or because you have realized that the deed is not worth the consequences. Alternatively, this reversed card may point to a breaking free of old ways of thinking or behaving. You feel the need to start anew with a clean conscience.
