1. My first thought was that bad habits, addictions and/or procrastination (The Devil) might interfere with long term vision and plans (Three of Wands) today.
But I like my second thought better:
2. Although present circumstances may appear hopeless and we may feel caught up in something that can’t be changed and will never get better, the fact is that all things change, and if we take the time to look ahead and make plans for the future, we can find our way out of even the most difficult circumstances.
Maybe both are true. Either way, we are called on to look ahead and plan for the future.
