Image of the card

Symbols*: The chameleon clings to its branch in a state of confusion. It is caught between a world of stability and its own changeability. It radiates diffused energy, with no clear direction for dispersal. The energy becomes displaced and gravitates back to the creature’s form through its spiraling tail. The spiraling tale appears to be an endless vortex with no clear receptacle for the depositing energy. With the chameleon’s inability to direct the energy in a manner that will allow it to move forward, the creature gets caught in a state of restlessness and anxiety. It begins to tighten its grip as it becomes more apprehensive. It becomes completely still except for darting movements of its errant eyes. It looks in several directions simultaneously, desperately seeking a way to break its paralysis.

Description*: There is a need to channel energy in a more focused manner. You may be encountering interference from outside parties as a result of engagin in negative relationships. It may be necessary to break free from negative influences or people as a means of reengaging ini future creative endeavors.
