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

    It’s unlikely that a picture on a card will give you the complete opposite vibe.

    That’s the point of the illustration, you get the original intent of the people who made the deck, with their meanings. Then the symbols and “aura”/vibe of the card and how they are placed, the context of the reading etc gives more details and personal information.

    If the meaning of the card seems like it doesn’t quite fit, it’s likely that the person the reading is for knows how it fits.
