Your Witches Rune
December 14, 2014
The Crossroads most basic meaning is opposition, be it explicit or subtle. Something or someone is working against your plans and opposing your desires. It shows that your efforts and ideas are giving no results, because something is “freezing” them, in a sense. Hence, this rune is also related to stagnation.
Very often this rune brings frustration for the person who draws it, because it is as if they were constantly walking into walls. One may feel inclined to change their goals or to stop seeking something all together, but the Crossroads do not tell you to give up. They tell you to change your strategy, because the path you are at right now is blocked. And there are many ways to reach the same place. Be careful to not put yourself in a victim position.
When the Crossroads appear it means that you’ll need a lot of willpower to get what you want. Often you’ll have to try again and again before getting any results, and everything will appear to evolve quite slowly. You may be confronted with periods of loneliness, isolation and with lack of support. This is a true test to your inner strength and resilience.
Conflicts, misunderstandings and opposition are one side of this rune. It can also represent situations that are simply beyond your control. In a more positive light, the Crossroads stand for wisdom, discipline, courage and the ability to keep going again the strongest winds. It helps you to understand losses and limitations.
In relationships reading, this rune can represent a karmic link between the people involved. If the relationship is starting, it probably will not go very far, or it’ll be marked by misunderstanding and disputes. Past relationships that still linger and emotional obstacles are also represented by the Crossroads.
