Today’s card is the Hanged Man. Hang back a little instead of reacting right away to situations that are difficult or troublesome. Turn things upside down and see things from a different angle. Instead of getting angry, ignore a sarcastic remark. Instead of letting a sarcastic remark slide as you usually do, defend yourself for a change. Be more optimistic if you are tend to see the negative side of things. And instead of being blindly cheerful, calm down a little and just observe.
The card for today, Saturday, and Sunday is the Hanged Man. This card is not about helplessness. It’s about you making the decision to take a step back and not react the way you normally would. You are consciously gong to to see things differently. You’d be surprised how much insight you can gain by taking that approach.
Here’s how the Hanged Man works. Remember the story of Archimedes? He was a Greek scientist way back in ancient times. He was working on a scientific problem that he just couldn’t figure out. Then, one day he decided to forget the problem and take a bath. When he sat down in the water, he suddenly realized the answer to his problem and shouted “Eureka!” There, we see that you can have a light bulb moment by doing something that doesn’t seem to have anything to do with the problem you are trying o solve.
Declare this to be “Opposite Weekend”:
- If you are a workaholic, then relax for a change.
- If you would usually react in anger in a given situation, then react calmly instead.
- If you would normally say no when someone invites you out, say yes instead and have fun.
- Give somebody the benefit of the doubt instead of being suspicious.
- Trust your intuition if you normally ignore your feelings.
Don’t get so invested in your usual point of view. Find out what you have been missing.
Have a great weekend!
This is a blessing. The Hanged Man on the card is not being punished — this character was put in this waiting position voluntarily. The suggestion is for you to do the same. Stop trying to take control of everything, at least for the time being. Allow events to unfold as they are meant to. Observe what happens. Look at the situation from a different angle.
It is interesting to note that on Wednesday, yesterday, and today I pulled Major Arcana cards. Major Arcana cards represent significant turning points in our lives. This makes sense in light of the solar eclipse coming up on Monday, which also is a major shift point.
With all of these influences in place, now is the time to rid yourself of negative attitudes and behaviors. If you can, meditate. In turn, you will experience the freedom and courage to manifest your wildest dreams.
But you don’t have to jump through hoops to get them. Abundance is yours simply by living your life and allowing the energy to flow through you. Remember that change is good and love is your superpower to help you achieve anything you desire.
Have a wonderful weekend.
