General Meaning: Alchemy, philosophy and astronomy (or rather astrology) is the mother of all sciences. Here is the basis for scientific thinking and we also have the symbols of the planets in the solar system. One also sees Greek and Hebrew symbols, which have left traces of knowledge that are valid even today. The human profile on the card is embedded in all the words, symbols and formulas to show that science leads man to see beyond. "Sator-Rotas-Arepo Tenet Opera Rotas", the so-called Sator-square as well as other symbols associated with alchemy, makes this card interesting, fascinating and complicated.
The number 18 is basically about solidarity, love.
The card is generally speaking associated with a lot of thinking.
Personality: A diligent, analytical person. The person thinks a lot and when conversing with him and her, many points are raised and made. New thoughts appear. Sometimes he or she can though seem very uncertain.

For people who have just started a relationship, the relationship is further developed but the process is slow. Patience is needed otherwise the relationship will end.
