Upright: This card represents people coming together for the sake of creation. Progress is being made though things are still in the early stages of development. While you are moving forward on plans, you still have a great deal to learn and would benefit from seeking outside assistance or aid in your endeavors. Watch how others work and listen to any critiques they may have to offer you. Feel encouraged that you have completed the first stages of your project and take time to revel in your accomplishments, but hold steady because there is still much planning to do.
Reversed: If this card is pulled in a reverse position, it may represent you or someone you are working with is behaving in a stubborn or uncooperative manner. Others may offer harsh criticisms to the work you have done thus far and you might feel fearful of moving forward on a project. You may be holding yourself back or relying on someone else a little too much. This card may be telling you it is time to break free and try on your own.
