Clow Cards: The Cloud


This indicates energies are low, and not to do anything over-and-above that which is absolutely necessary for now. By trying to force issues at this moment, you run the risk of setting yourself back or making yourself ill or stressed. Save for the time when you know you can use it to a much better effect. It does acknowledge though that things are seeming to be getting on top of you.

Are things really as bad as they appear, or are you just not emotionally up to being positive for now? Feeling sorry for yourself is okay sometimes, but just make sure you don't let it drag on longer than is necessary, or that you highlight the wrong source for this feeling of woe.
