The Law of the Regard

Several of the figures in the Tarot de Marseille are looking to the right or to the left. Such cards are said to have a Regard. When a figure in a card regards an empty space where there is no card, another card must be drawn and placed next to it in the direction of its Regard. This card can be upright or reversed. What is the first card thinking of, what is the card "regarding"? In this way the spread comes alive: a new card shows what the previous card is concerned with, what it is regarding. (In French, a "regard" suggests a connection, i.e. a literal glance or gaze, respect or esteem, or the object of concern.)
