To clarify and deepen my understanding of the Crossroads, I pondered the following comparisons with similar and/or opposing cards. Maybe my comparisons will inspire you to make your own!

Crossroad: Freedom "to" - we're free to choose, to go where we please, to do what we want to do.
Clover: Freedom "from" - we're free from burden, free from responsibilities, free from outside influences.

What is right and wrong?
Crossroad: To have no dogma - everything is open to discussion. To allow different opinions; tolerance; to see the good in many different ideas. Moral relativism.
Cross: Dogma. Strong beliefs about what's right and what's wrong. Intolerance, strong adherence to one ideology. Moral absolutism.

Ambivalence / ambiguity
Crossroads: Someone has ambivalent feelings about something - for in their view, this something has both good and bad aspects, pleasant and unpleasant aspects, so they can't give a black-and-white judgement on the issue, or find it difficult to make a clear decision for or against it. Something looks ambiguous to us.
Wild Card: Something or someone is ambivalent or ambiguous in the sense that they don't fit into one category exclusively - they might fit into one category in some respects, into another in other respects, (etc.), but not fully in either. Something actually is ambiguous by nature.
