The Hanged Man and Princess of Wands
This week we have two cards to support us as we make our way into Pisces Season.
Our first card is The Hanged Man. This card may bring up feelings of fear that something unpleasant is happening. But really it is here to share a message of how to handle challenging situations, especially under the sign of Pisces.
The Hanged Man points to roadblocks. Something is not working, we have hit a dead-end, and we need to reevaluate what we are doing.
We cannot move forward in the direction we are currently facing. Whether it’s a personal relationship, a job, a lifestyle, or the systems and structures of our world, something cannot move forward.
What comes to mind when you hear this? Take some time this week to think about the roadblocks in your life. Whatever is your first thought is usually the right one.
Ask yourself these questions: Can we salvage things or do we need to part ways? Can we adjust or do we need to let go and move on completely?
When we need to let go of something we can feel like we failed. We experience emotional pain or even a deep resistance to making the change. Our resistance can then cause us to be stuck or suspended like The Hanged Man.
This card also points to our need to hold on to certain outcomes. It calls us to practice the art of non-attachment. If we are feeling an intense desire for something to go a particular way, this card asks us to examine why.
Pisces will shine a bright light on your resistance and what needs to be let go. If you have been putting off an important next step or holding on to a cycle that needs to end, it will come to the surface this week.
The Princess of Wands also speaks to our need for release this week. She calls for us all to find what we are personally passionate about and share it out. She wants us to connect to our own fierceness and our own fire. She wants us to know our strengths.
If there is something or someone holding you down, this will be the week to break free. Pisces season is all about sharing our emotions. Do not hold back feelings you have been keeping in, this is your time to let go.
Spend time thinking about what you need to shed this week. What do you need to say to stand up for yourself? What do you need to share?
It could be something you need to say to someone else or something you need to say to yourself. It could be another person, a commitment, or a job holding you down. Whatever the heavy burden, you will feel a shift this week. But you must put in the work.
It will be your courage that gives you the much-needed release. This action will lead to your next phase on your path, but as I said, it will take courage.
It is our right to be safe, to be understood, and to thrive. The energy of the Princess of Wands is urging us to make sure we are all three.
She is stubborn and much stronger than she looks. So don’t let your perceptions of yourself get in the way. You are a warrior. You are a visionary. You are fire.
Mantra for the week: I am not afraid of my emotions. I share them freely and break out of old patterns.
