But what if your own interpretation is almost opposite of the ‘official’ card meaning?

    I find that the Rider-Waite-Smith deck shows illustrations that are closely connected to their interpretation. The major arcana cards sometimes have a bit too many/confusing symbols, but the illustrator had a lot more freedom with the minor arcana, and she turned these cards into easy to read illustrations, almost like a picture book.
