This card reveals that its actually your own fear that has you immobilized, trapped, and is holding you back from making decisions or choices. Youre the one whos holding yourself prisoner (or hostage). In order to continue on your journey, you must firstly face your fears so new people and conditions can manifest. Many people choose to stay in this fearful place because they cannot see the road ahead, or from a misguided sense of safety, or fear of starting something new. Staying in this place will only add to levels of stress and anxiety, and cause adverse affects to your physical body. Seek out wise counsel to assist you. You dont have to do this all alone, but know that you possess all the tools you need to free yourself. Youre forgetting how strong you really are! This period will end when you use your mind to cut through the limitations caused by your emotions.
