33. The Key
The Key Card Meaning
The Key shows you the answer. The solution. Like a key for a test or the key to a lock, it gives you entry to something you didn't previously have access to, or you forgot how to access.
When you think about how a key works, it fits into a lock's grooves so precisely that with the right angles, such a small thing can grant access to almost anything.
The Key reminds us that with the right approach, you can solve just about any problem, big or small. No matter how large a problem may feel, if you can figure out the grooves of the lock or problem you wish to solve, then you have access to the solution.
In a reading, when the Key appears, pay extra attention to the cards surrounding it. It's showing you the grooves so you can cut your solution precisely.
It can also point to success or just a simple YES to a yes or no question.
The Key Card Combinations

These combinations below are interpretations I have discovered over the years. The context can change EVERYTHING so use these meanings as prompts for your intuition to sing with the context of your question. I can't stress enough how important context is!
