The Hanged Man and Four of Cups
This week we have a New Moon in Cancer on June 28, bringing our vulnerability to the surface in an already emotional time. If we embrace our sensitivity instead of fighting against it, we can find the power it holds.
The cards show us how to navigate this moment in time. Our first card is The Hanged Man and it often points to an experience of something rather unpleasant. However, it also shares how to handle challenging situations.
The Hanged Man points to roadblocks. We are encountering the same thing over and over without any change. We have hit a dead-end and we need to reevaluate what we are doing.
What comes to mind when you hear this? Take time to think about the roadblocks in your life and our world. Whatever comes to mind first is usually what we need to focus on the most.
Ask yourself these questions: Can we salvage things or do we need to take a whole new path? 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. Our resistance can cause us to feel stuck or suspended.
The Hanged Man also points to our need to hold on to specific 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.
The Cancer New Moon shines a bright light on our resistance and what we need let go. If we have been putting off a next step or holding on to a cycle that needs to end, this week it will come to the surface to be released.
Our next card is a completely different side of Cancer. This is about embracing our sensual sides and taking care of ourselves will we journey through the more challenging energy of The Hanged Man.
The Four of Cups represent sensuality, pleasure, and luxurious experiences. We are craving physical touch and wanting to care for ourselves.
On the card, water is following freely from opulent gold goblets. Each cup is full while also filling the other cups. There is a balance of giving and receiving that is in perfect harmony.
We are feeling the need to fill our homes with flowers, eat soul-nourishing food, and take in art. We are craving the warmth of the sun and our feet in the grass.
Under the influence of this card, we are swimming in a pool of tenderness and we need support from those around us. So many of us are blessed to have amazing friends and family. The Four of Cups calls us to take stock of all the good we have at this moment. It wants us to let the love already present wash over us.
When we count our blessings, we allow more blessings to enter our lives. When we focus on all we have, instead of our deficits, we attract more goodness.
Use this energy this week to be grateful for each person and each luxury in your life. Thank them for being a wonderful support to you and tell them how much you care.
Allow the energy of the cards and the New Moon to enter your world. It is calling us to embrace our sensitivity, let go, and allow love to surround us.
Mantra for the week: I am not afraid of my emotions. I share them freely and break out of old patterns.
