You are confined by circumstances to your business.

Detailed meaning of the shackle tea leaf symbol

Make sure that you don't find yourself in a tight situation where you are forced to dedicate all your time to one specific thing and neglect the rest.

Scattered in the cup: scattered shackles in the teacup denote that, there are several issues in your life which demand your time and energy.

This is making you feel confused. The simplest thing to do is to make sure that you come up with a plan and prioritize the issues. Once that is done, start tackling one after the other until all of them are sorted out.

Conclusion: issues in life are a normal occurrence, but when you find that you are being weighed down by one particular issue, then it is time to look around for help from friends and family on how to sort it out without it impacting negatively on your life.
