"Two of Wands and Strength. Two of Wands is horizontal and blocks Strength. Strength represents you, but you are below the Wands. It’s like you are beaten into submission, held down in a cage by an external force. I do not think your Shadow aspect is what is causing you to despair. It feels like an external source. A person/people or a place. Something specific, but you confuse it with your own self. As if you’re the one who put yourself in this position you are in, but it is NOT. The Two of Wands is almost like a gate-keeper that won’t let you free, that blocks you from evolving to your highest potential. I must also stress that Strength is depicted as a woman and a lion. You are the lion, and the woman is a representation of your self-control. But because of your situation, you have been reduced to no more than a trick, a circus-animal. You are fierce and you can tear apart that which limits you. You have been made timid. Someone tricked you to trust them, though their motives are unclear. Your insides burning is your spiritual pain. Wands is a suit of fire and the spirit, and Strength is the sign of Leo - another symbol of the sun. You are repressed by fear and duty. You are a wild lion raised by humans who mean to show you off like something they conquered. You don’t want to be there. You don’t belong there."
At the time I had no inkling of MILABS, the reality of aliens, etc. and found this mystifying yet it resonated with me. Now I wonder at the implications.
