You might have felt in recent months like you’ve been hurtling through life, like a freight train almost out of control. The Hanged Man advises you today to STOP and JUST BE for a while. Take a break from the constant activity and your need to move forward at top speed. You can resume again soon. But for now, you must take a respite, or else the Universe will MAKE you stop, and the method might not be to your liking. A shamanic teacher of mine calls it “getting The 2x4 of Spirit upside the head”. You don’t want that! So rein yourself in for the time being and take this pause to reflect on where you are in your life and how you feel about it. It could be that you’ll decide you’ll want to break old patterns and drop a few unhelpful habits. You might also decide that the goal you’re driving yourself toward isn’t really what you want after all. This is a good time of year to contemplate these things and make positive changes in your life.
