The Crossroad

UPRIGHT: time for a crucial decision, choice, responsibility, commitment

REVERSED: hesitance, overthinking, regret, fear of failure

THE STORY: The choice between three options is another common fairy tale motif. It presents itself as the pick between three roads (love, fortune or death), three boxes (like in The Merchant of Venice – gold, silver and lead) or three princesses (the two sisters and Cinderella, or the three daughters of King Lear). The outcome is often unexpected, and things are not always what they seem – but the choice is unavoidable.
