Thanks @Greywaren yes it is RWS. I think I'm having trouble interpreting this as a block or obstacle because I'm not sure how to interpret the idea of the obstacle itself. As in, is it a person who is the obstacle... or a trait of mine that is the obstacle?
I'm a fairly articulate, considered person when I talk about people (most of the time!) but I would have thought that if this represented someone else or an external factor it would have showed up elsewhere on the spread, rather than here.
I'm wondering if it means other's (or a particular person's) gossip about me/careless words are harming me and my friendships. I'd rather that not be what it is saying as it feels like a very powerless place to be...and the devil in the immediate future isn't exactly reassuring based on that reading.
I've just realised what an emotional trigger the idea of gossip is to me.
Perhaps that's the answer in itself!!
If people gossiping is a trigger for you then this explains the obstacle. It may be the fear of being the subject of gossip holds you back. It may be worth looking at your levels of trust.
