This card is one of personal choice, reflection and asks us if we are truly happy just hanging around or if we will do something about it. When this card comes up in a reading I find that the person receiving this card is simply delaying the inevitable. But we are happy to take a moment to figure out what the next steps are.
Basically this is a card of transition. It's time to figure out how you got to this exact moment of your life. What past choices led you to the current situation. Is it where you want to be? How could you have done better? What will you not allow in the future. Learn from your mistakes and move forward with a clear mind and open heart.
Choose to make the future brighter by making better choices today. Get clear on your vision of your life and stick to it. Always listen to your inner guidance as its always right. The Ravens in this card bring messages from Spirit that aid you in your times of important decisions. You have made it through the tough stuff, its over, now take the time to meditate and breath in your future self. Don't rush but don't hesitate for the next chapter in your life. The doors that have closed are a gift from above and happened for a reason. So you don't go down that path again. I have been seeing the Angel numbers 808 & 909 a whole bunch lately and the basic translation is "impending changes are part of what you desire." Although very true, not easy to live through day to day.
This is the time to really let go of the past. I know its a challenge and doing whats best sometimes doesn't feel like at the time.You may ask how do I get rid of those feelings and really let go? Just stay strong and carry on. Seek healing from a reiki master or get a stress releasing massage, take time to meditate.In a way this month is a period of grieving, but you can also look at it as a period of cleansing. Here is a thought, why do we hold on to unhealthy behaviors or thoughts that do not serve us in our highest and greatest good anyways? My answer to that is we are only human and here to learn lessons about relationships, emotions and how we treat each other. Our whole lives are just one big cosmic life lesson. Use the tools that you know, such as Feng Shui, Crystals or time outdoors. Nurture yourself during this time of transition and reassessment. You deserve it! Take time for you, to reflect and heal from the past then let it go.
During October you may find set backs, feeling like a deer caught in headlights or you may feel like your not getting anywhere. But that is simply not true. You have made big changes, massive transformation and we just have to reinvent ourselves from time to time. I love Madonna, and she has transformed with the times to stay current. This is a blessing and an opportunity we have before us.
In a strange way we always miss the past because we knew it. The future is the unknown and brings up a little fear. Focus on filling your cup before someone else's and be free form those that have dragged you down. The Hanged Man gives us a knowing that there is a next step and the time to make the best choices for the future. Take advantage of this "time out" and clear out the clutter, release what you need to release and focus on the next step. Just make sure it is going up. One of my favorite sayings for business is there is no elevator to the top, you gotta take the stairs. The first step is always the hardest then it gets easier from there. You are ready. Promise.
Sending healing Love to you,
