I drew the ship again this morning for the second day in a row. I have to consider that this card carries an important message, but I still have not figured out exactly what it is trying to tell me.The Ship represents travel, and I don’t have any trips planned for the near future. I also drew The Crossroads today, which is all about choices and multiple opportunities. These cards seem to indicate a journey with options for several possible destinations, or perhaps these cards refer to an opportunity to take a ‘road trip’ in the near future.
I had been seriously considering a road trip a few months ago, but the plans had been put on hold indefinitely due to recent changes in my work situation. I did have several potential destinations in mind regarding a possible relocation, so maybe the trip will happen after all.
If I’m going to be completely honest here, I have to admit that another interpretation comes to mind when I look at these two cards. Sometimes I feel like I would love to just run away to someplace nobody will find me. I’m not the kind of person who enjoys confrontation, and I usually prefer to walk away than engage in an argument. It may be that today I will find myself slipping into ‘escape mode.’
