These shifts are imperceptibly slow, but it is as if they do not actually change until we notice that they are changing; by then they are too far removed from what they once were to ever be again as we lived them. The Tarot is telling you to get ready for a big change no matter how minor a decision you are about to make.
The future position is actually a great place to see this card in a Tarot reading. You can be warned that your current interests may lead you to a place of limitation rather than of being open and receptive to new experiences. This card is not rigid or certain; therefore, knowing it is coming can allow you to alter your attitudes.
