Time to take my foot off the brakes!

The Hanged Man is back again, but this time he’s reversed! Remember he’s been stalking me in previous weeks, encouraging me to take time out, to look at life from a different perspective. The upright advice centres around allowing yourself the time to simply stop and observe your life, letting go of things that no longer serve your highest good. Lockdown ensured we all had time out whether we wanted it or not. And now here he is, back again but in the reversed position, and accompanied by the Fresh Air oracle card.

It looks like the message for this week is to get moving again, and breathe fresh air back into life again. As I have a dog that requires daily walks, fresh air has never been in short supply.Maybe this is too literal and interpretation. On the other hand, we are encouraged to wash hands, cover our faces, keep to our 2m space, and ventilate rooms regularly, so taking the oracle card at face value is likely to be a great idea. It’s a shame the weather isn’t as warm as last week. Throwing open windows and doors to air the house isn’t quite so inviting on colder days. It won’t stop me – much to my family’s annoyance. That’s what extra jumpers are for!

Meanwhile, back with the reversed Hanged Man, his main themes are feelings of not being able to make a decision, not wanting to make a decision (not the same as being unable) and delays. However, in situations where things have been on hold, such as lockdowns, this card comes as a long awaited green light to get back into the flow of life again.

It’s only Monday morning and so far this has manifested in long-overdue appointments for selfcare coming in thick and fast. They’re like buses out here in the back of beyond – none for ages and then they all turn up at once. Not one but two calls from my dental practice, one to offer me a cancellation slot for some horrible work due on a big old molar that’s seen better days, and the other to offer me an initial consultation for braces! I promised myself at the beginning of this year, to sort out my front teeth alignment.

I had just put the phone down when my mobile buzzed to let me know my cancelled hair cut has been rescheduled… for tomorrow! It’s six months since I last saw my hairdresser! I usually wear my hair longish, below my collar bones, but now it’s half way down my chest. As for my fringe, it’s long enough to tuck under my chin! I’m so excited to have a restyle, or at least a fringe I can see out of, without constantly tucking it behind my ears, or accidentally nearly swallowing it when I eat.

The arrival of our post delivered a letter inviting my to book in for an eye test! I could do with a new prescription and a new pair of frames. The sparkly bits have fallen off the legs and I don’t see as well with the current prescription. This is going to be a pain in the wallet but it’s not as if I’ve spent much over the past six months of restrictions. At least with an up-to-date prescription I won’t be constantly adjusting my new glasses as I sit to write up readings and blogs!

I wonder how the reversed Hanged Man will manifest himself for you. You can write your observations in the comments section below.

Wishing you all a blessed week.
