I would read this Quint as the World. I wouldn't reduce it any further. Some others do reduce it further and consider both cards when interpreting the spread. I think one Quint is enough. ;-)

I'd also use the Quint as a bit of a control. It's an earth card, so it would have an especially strong influence on the 7 of Hearts, since that is a water card. It would have a neutral influence on the wand, since that is a fire card, and it would have a weak influence on the sword, since that is an air card.

So, 7 of Cups (with the World's influence) may be talking about an especially large choice/dream -- we're talking a "life goal" perhaps.

The 7 of Wands, pretty much interpreted as it is, being neutral to the World, would suggest that this choice/dream is certainly possible, but won't be easy to accomplish. It's a fight for one to have "everything" perhaps.

And then the 7 of Swords, having a weak connection with the World would suggest something like, the danger of giving up or only reaching part of the goal. It's the failure to get "everything" perhaps.

Amanda has talked about the Quint card a lot, so I'm trying to pay attention to it more. Do you guys see it as being similar to the Shadow card (like, a hidden influence), or more like an additional card to the spread?

Further, let's say I have this spread:

7 of Hearts
7 of Wands
7 of Swords

Adding these together come to 21. So is the Quint the World card? Or do I add the 2 and 1 together to get the Empress?

Meaning, do I always reduce to 1 digit (meaning the Quint will never be any of the later Majors), or do I just reduce until I get to 21 or lower?
