Welcome to your weekly post about the energy of the week, what it will be like, and how to take better advantage of that energy.
Let us begin.
The Hanged Man:
When this card comes into play, we must make a decision that requires us to sacrifice in order to receive.
What is it that we must give up?
Maybe it is love.
Maybe it is the illusion of another soul connection.
That things are meant to be because we desire it more than other things.
The Hanged Man is passionate.
He sees the real truth. He hangs upside down so that people will question his action. So that people will try to understand.
The Hanged man hangs upside down by pure faith.
Faith that if he looks at his life from a different angle, then Source will be revealed.
Maybe things need to be turned upside down in our life in order to appreciate.
With the Fool leading with their heart, the Hanged Man turns everything upside down with truth in his heart.
The truth that if he performs this act of faith then surely something will happen.
Sometimes it happens. Sometimes it does not.
Sometimes he is just left there, looking at the world from a different view.
At age 41 (going on 42) I have come to realize that the upside-down part is all I have really ever known.
Sometimes we are left upside down in order to understand that others are right side up.
That they are the ones missing out on all the beautiful projections of life set upon this Earth.
The Hanged Man understands that we sometimes have to live a challenged life, in order to be appreciative of what we have.
Appreciate what you have.
For you never know when you will be turned right-side up.
Page of Swords, Ten of Cups, Temperance:
Understand the truth.
Understand the situation that we have created into our environment.
Communicate our self-worth.
Communicate it to those we love.
Try to understand our behaviors.
Try to understand why they are created.
We also must try to understand how to undo them.
To release them from our heart.
It will hurt at times.
We will cry.
We must learn to say good-bye.
We must learn to let go.
I seem to state this every week. I seem to say this every year. Maybe it is a cycle.
A wheel that turns without slow motion. A wheel that is created by our past actions and current mistakes.
A wheel that turns and turns and turns.
It will not stop, so we have to learn to go with the flow of things. To learn to move with the energy. To try and talk our way out of the tunnel. To be happy again.
To find community and compassion in our life.
To grieve with those who understand.
To connect with those who are far away.
In moving to Reno, NV, I have found that I miss my circle of friends. They are always in my heart but they are so far away. There is no more calling them up and saying “Hey bitch! Lets hang out and talk.”
I use to hang out with my friend Brian Parker in Austin, TX. I use to hang out with my best friends Shaun, Michelle, and Beatrice.
I was a hop, skip, and a jump away from my family. My community.
I am here now in a new place and not a day goes by that I do not cry. Even when days are full of laughter and joy with my new friends, I still remember the old times.
Here is where the healing comes in. Temperance.
It took a move to help me remember just how bright I can shine.
It doesn’t have to take a move for all of us to remember this as well.
We can recognize it now as we cut ties to those who do not serve us anymore.
As we let go of past actions and hurt.
It is time for the wheel to turn in a positive direction. In a direction of understanding.
Until next time.
