3 Card Crow Tarot Spread for Sun Jan 21
I apologize this reading is a little late today! And it comes with a bit of a warning. I have been trying to find a positive light in this spread and really the only way I can wrap my head around this one is - the cards do not tell what will happen, but rather offer advice on how to manage what does happen so that we move forward in the best possible direction.
The crows have been displaced due to a storm that tore apart the clock tower they had called home for generations. Their lives turned upside down and now they must scramble together to find a new place to roost. However the Two of Wands arrives reversed - the crows are unable to make a decision and as a result, they are unable to agree and remain in a place of limbo due to indecision. The Hermit also arrives reversed and warns that with the feeling of unhappiness, there is the potential for retreating as a way of escaping life's current challenges.
For those of us who have had our lives completely turned upside due to a shift within our home or because of a natural disaster, finding the strength to move on can be a task that requires more strength than accustomed and as a result the feeling of being overwhelmed can leave you feeling stuck, completely immobilized by fear. We humans all too often have a tendency to numb ourselves as a way to escape the pain or to "get through" a rough patch. The only problem is that by numbing we are not solving and I see both the reversed Two of Wands and reversed Hermit as a warning that there will be a time when indecision will cause a standstill and progress will all but come to a screeching halt. It can be tempting to put off till tomorrow what is painful to address today, but unless it is addressed, the tower will not be rebuilt or a new place found. The way to get unstuck is to make small but meaningful steps towards rebuilding what has come crashing down. This is not a time to retreat inward, but rather get out there and find the energy to move forward.
