Clow Cards: The Storm


A feeling of being under a cloud where the cause cannot be pinpointed. General feeling of being depressed and under the weather. It can also indicate things are up in the air around you, as if you were caught in a tempest from hell. Not a lot you can do really, except ride it out and wait for things to settle; otherwise you are, in effect, trying to fight and control an immovable force.

The need to just still yourself and focus. Otherwise, this indicates headless Chicken Syndrome which is creating more hassles than it is solving. Others around you will not be too chuffed if they are caught up in the bluster you are causing.
