The Reading Since THE LIGHT is in position 1 (problem), this situation has no problems at the moment, and it will probably continue to go well no matter happens. F can become a leader and bring the members together. However, since THE VOICE is in position 2 [influence on concerned person(s)], the feeling to want to make friends with the other members is too overwhelming, and care should be taken to not wear everyone out. With THE TWIN in position 3 (influences on surrounding people), good results can be obtained when band members make good comments on each other’s skills and cooperate with each other. THE SWORD in position 4 (the key/key person) is a symbol of truth and power. The key for the to band continue building a relationship and prospering is F’s passion for their music; if it is genuine, everything will be fine. In position 7 (solution) is THE FIREY, whose message is that of strong beliefs and breaking through obstacles. Continuing to dream of going professional is, in a way, a shortcut to becoming a professional. Now, in position 6 (problem not settled well) is THE DASH: Members will begin to argue amongst themselves, and it becomes a painful situation on the way. In addition, there is a chance that F will experience a crisis that will return him back to the starting point: band dissolution. On the other hand, THE FIGHT is in position 5 (problem settled well), so a big turning point will come and any misfortune experienced up till that point will be able to be turned around to good fortune.
