In a tarot reading, a card may have more to say than its surface meaning. Cards have a spectrum of meanings, and sometimes there is another message waiting to be deciphered.
Look at this example from Tarot: Get the whole story by James Ricklef. In a fictional reading for Abe Lincoln, Ricklef has three messages for him:
"[T]he Two of Cups provides some advice for your future political efforts. First,  it suggests taking a more conciliatory tone. Emphasize compromise and cooperation, either within your own party or with your opponents. It also  stresses the importance of supportive relationships, urging you to expand your professional relationships or to strengthen existing ones. In addition,  you may want to try to rely more on the cooperative support of others next time."
