Position 1: Background | Present Concern
Working to further your personal growth, unexpected developments that suddenly come up, relationship strain or falling out with someone close.
Position 2: Your Drive and Motivations
You want to find the solution to a problem you are having with someone close to you, this may even be a struggle within. Unexpected obstacles or difficulties that come up suddenly cause frustration.
Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious
Confusion, difficult dealings with someone close, bouncing back and forth between choices and not being able to make a definite decision. Fear of standing alone or of taking a stand.
Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
Be willing to apply yourself to having what is best for you and don’t settle for less out of fear of loss or failure. Be willing to stand up for yourself, watch for ways others may be misleading you or taking advantage of the situation, watch for ways you may be doing the same thing ;). This card can sometimes point to a tendency to react or take hasty actions based on emotion, rather than careful thought out plans.
Position 5: Course of Action
Keep believing and working towards your goals, you are closer than you might think. Don’t allow others (or even yourself) to discourage or sabotage you, but also be sure that the actions you are taking are actually working for your highest good and aren’t just merely what you think you want.
