Clow Cards: The Freeze


This can have one of two meanings:
either you need to put things on ice for a while, or, you need to start warming up your emotions. If you are finding others are distancing themselves, look at how you have come across. Empathy and warmth might actually melt some ice here and cause someone to realize/change their ways. Not always easy if your first instinct is to bite instead of hug!

If you feel you are getting nowhere fast and expending a lot energy in the process, try to accept that now may not be the time for action. If somebody does need you as a support in any way, try not to give them the cold shoulder. You never know when you might need the favor returned.

The Freeze (Seven of Clubs [Wands])

Upright: The ability to "hold one's own" against adversaries, stiff competition in business, a fight won, a fight one may have to face soon, victory, energy, courage. Great happiness and good fortune. If troubles come they will be caused by one of the opposite sex to the inquirer. Do not spread yourself out too thin, just settle down slowly and work on things.

Meanings inspired from the anime

The Freeze is a giant koi-like creature formed of ice and with an aggressive temperament. It has the ability to freeze almost anything instantly, can emit ice as a weapon and is able to lower the air temperature to freezing point. It might represent a person with a 'cold' personality / who likes to attack people with cold comments (lack of emotions/empathy).

In the anime, the Freeze decided to lower the temperature inside an arena, causing everybody to become too cold to resume their activities and eventually turning them into ice. It could symbolize an activity or situation that slowed down or stopped completely / no progress being done.

The Freeze is under the power of the Watery, the Moon and is related to Eastern magic.
