There will be changes in your life that will stress you out and force you to focus your attention on bringing things back into balance. You will have to accept your new reality, come to terms with a situation that will be unpleasant to you, and find a way out of your impasse. You will make sacrifices so as to get your life back in order. Make sure you keep a tight rein on your ego and pay more attention to certain matters. Once this period is behind you, you will become self-reliant and gain control of your life!
The reversed Hanged Man is today’s love tarot card. While the card in its upright position suggests voluntary service and temporary waiting, the reversed card feels drained of choice and hope. One of the people in a relationship feels like a martyr, resentfully serving someone who fails to appreciate their efforts. The relationship seems stuck, without any hope of regaining momentum. Addiction and delusion are among the other negative meanings of the Hanged Man. Sometimes the reversed Hanged Man comes up in readings where one partner is deeply in denial, choosing not to see the signs of chemical dependency or a gambling problem. You glue on a pair of rose-colored glasses, refusing to perceive your lover’s lies. This card also suggests the need to move out of passivity, even if that means cutting your losses.
The Hermit card indicates a time of isolation. You are trying to organise your thoughts and prioritise your desires so as to put your business and financial affairs in order. You feel the need to temporarily withdraw from the world in order to make some decisions about your career and finances. Your intention is to reflect on certain matters and thus gain in maturity and strength. You are trying to learn from the mistakes you made in the past so that you will avoid repeating them in the future. The period lying ahead of you may be one of solitude, but it will contribute to your spiritual growth and help you acquire experience and wisdom. This period of introspection will be short-lived but very beneficial to your personal development.
Giving to others is something you enjoy doing because it’s a way to express your intuitive nature, which can sometimes get overlooked. You are a sensitive person, and getting your needs met can go overlooked as well, unless you have very old friends who’ve known you for a while! You need to learn to put your feelings into words. Be on the lookout for ways to express your feelings and to be heard. A book club is a fun and social way to express your emotional response to litterature, and could be a good place to start.
