Blocked Meaning

Card Theme: Ungrateful

The Four of Wands in a blocked position suggests that you may have allowed your excitement to take over. By letting that happen, you might have ignored that cautionary voice warning you to take things a bit slower.

You may have experienced a lack of balance in various aspects of your life.

It is great to have enthusiasm in our life, but it’s essential to listen to your inner adult voice within you.
