Spiritual Interpretation (Reversed) 

In a spiritual context, it means that there is a lack of balance in your life. You have completely shut your emotions or intuition and make all your decisions based on your rational brain. Alternatively, this could also mean that you make your decisions solely based on emotions and intuition. Trusting only your intuition could also have a negative impact on your life. You must take up a middle ground and base your decisions on all the factors involved.  

You will be able to connect with your spiritual self only if you move on from the past and forgive others for their mistakes. Holding onto the past doesn't benefit you at all. You should learn to let go.
