Clow Cards: The Maze


This card may show that things have got a little tricky around you. You may need to be methodical and patient in coming up with solutions or ways forward. The obvious methods may not be the best either, so be prepared to be patient- to have in mind a Plan B or a Plan C if necessary. Also, do not be afraid to ask others for some ideas or suggestions- they may just have the answer that is eluding you.

You are going round and round in circles because you are not thinking outside of the box, or you are too pig-headed to at least consider the fact that somebody may have a slightly better answer to this issue or situation.

Meanings inspired from the anime

The Maze is an entity who takes the appearance of a maze with multi-dimentional perspectives and has the ability to trap people in its space-distorted environment. This could represent a specific situation which makes you feel lost and/or confused.

It likes to force people in trying to find their way out, but it only seems possible to do so with the help of powerful magic. In the anime, Sakura and her friend couldn't find a way out by themselves, but a new ally came to rescue them. So it could refer to a problem which seems to have no available/easy solution, or that you should ask for help from someone more experienced.

The Maze is under the power of the Earthy, the Sun and is related to Western magic.
