Primary Meaning

Illusion is the core meaning of this card. But illusion can be both good or bad. In this case Illusion means Imagination, intuition and dreams. It can also signify psychic work or abilities.

Secondary Meaning

As before, illusion can be both good or bad and for the secondary meaning it tilts more towards the negative side of the illusion. It most often shows the rejection to reality and difficulties to distinguish between what is real and what is not. Treachery and cheating is often following as well as an inability to tell the truth.
