Crook and Flail
In ancient Egyptian times, the Crook and Flail were emblems of the Pharaoh’s authority and a hint of that energy is retained by this card. It carries the same implication wherever it appears – from the smallest private social group to the largest corporation. This card talks about leadership, authority and the self-discipline required to achieve both of them.
It also implies authority within the home, club or team and its appearance refers to worldly status.
If Crook and Flail appears for you today, usually it’s because you are thinking about some sort of leadership or authority issue. If you are wondering how to achieve the outcome you want – Crook and Flail points at self-discipline.
It’s a very ‘grown-up’ energy in that there’s not much room for fun in this card. Just a ‘knuckle down, get it done’ kind of vibe.
