|Lady + Key + Birds|
The Key gives us these lines: "The solution to the riddle is all here. The Key opens every door. When a question is gnawing at you, look what the Key says to you here."
And finally the Birds: "The Birds message brings much sadness, yet is of only short duration. First, everything seems totally dreadful. But before you know it, it's come to an end."
The Birds, in particular, generally have a broader and somewhat different interpretation in modern approaches. It is often associated with phone calls, and from there with talk more generally, and gossip - talk that causes pain. So, brainstorming these cards gets me:
A woman is sure to receive a phone call.
A woman unlocks something through talk.
A woman will certainly cause distress by gossiping.
In general, if you are a woman, the Lady card is seen as you. However, there can be exceptions to it. So, it's best to keep both options in mind. Is it you or someone around you that this could refer to?
I'm going with the middle option today. My therapist was away, and missed all the drama of the last ten days. I'm looking forward to working through some of that with him - it's sure to unlock a lot of emotion, and hopefully a little insight.
I am grateful for someone to talk to in confidence, no strings attached.
