On this first day of the New Year, when everyone is supposed to be optimistic and put their best foot forward, you might instead be feeling stuck. You might be in a situation in which you are confused and think you have no options - your thoughts are going around and around like a mouse in a maze. If so, this card advises you to look at things from a new perspective. Stop overthinking and instead open up to your intuition. You know deep within yourself what the right course of action is. You have the power to throw off the imaginary cords that bind you and are holding you back. Simply listen to your heart.
