Blocked Meaning

Card Theme: Withdrawn

Three of Cups in the blocked position suggest that you might have suffered from a lack of social contact. Have you been cutting yourself off from people? Have you felt some emotional dishonesty by someone you trusted?

Maybe you’re just not feeling that creative at the moment and are finding it hard to stay focused.
