Different printings or even a printing error maybe?

But if yours faces right and these were my cards I would read this as progress becoming slower and then coming to a halt. Neither the KnoP nor Death are moving anywhere.
Lol... now that the confusion is cleared...
I am not interested here inhow this might be read on a personal level, or in fortune-telling way;what i am genuinely interested in is what do you think, who this guys might be, where are they coming from and what is their lesson.

how is it that there is a difference?
Lunalyn, mea culpa, its 6oW, not the Knight of Wands!
These were the first cards i pulled in the morning, and i typed the post while i was still half-asleep... Sorry!

Now, what would be your thoughts on the three riders?

To me, that would depend on who's looking at the cards.

thanks for the clarification moderndayruth.

depending on which order you put them in....

you could have 6 of Wands riding forth in Victory with Death following while the Knight of Pentacles stays behind weighing up his options?

Yes, in my view, that would change their message.
I had them like this:

(from left to right)

6oW, Kn oP, Death

As if the warrior of the 6oW had won the battle, the Knight of Pentacles has stored the material gain and Death has taken it to the bare bones...

Let me snap a pic of the cards.

putting them that way....the 6 of Wands is riding forth to Victory but the Knight of Pentacles is blocking his way because he's sitting there not moving. meanwhile Death is going about his business doing what he does.

Very interesting! I think that like that we get Memento mori moment.

In the Procession I, Death was heading the procession, what would be your thoughts on that?
