Meditating on these cards, I came up with several other interpretations, which might be considered more obviously spiritual. For instance, creativity transforms obstacles. Which got me thinking about the ways in which I can incorporate creative practices into my spirituality, and how that might allow me to overcome some of the obstacles I face. Certainly, I've been finding solace in doing zentangles...
A third interpretation might be: existential fears are surrounded by creative blockages. Now there's another interesting one! Getting trapped in existential angst can certainly put the kibosh on feeling creative. And a spiritual practice to help me deal with existential anxiety would therefore be a good thing to put into practice. However, as with the hay fever, I am not really feeling creatively blocked.
Another possible interpretation is: divine grace ends barriers. One of those obvious and yet profound understandings. Feeling a moment of grace can free us from all sense of boundedness and restriction. And walking in nature later that day, it was a joy to be out in the fresh air, communing with the trees, and also feeling a part of human society as others flocked to enjoy some time in nature and the first truly spring-like rays of sun we've had this year :D
