Today I drew three cards using one of my favorite spreads, The Bridge. The positions are: Where I am, where I’m headed, and the middle card is the bridge – how to get there gracefully. This reading is about my three grand-children that will be spending the day with me. So, where I am today is certainly surrounded by my three babies that live close by. The Hierophant Rx (reversed) is a scene I see quite a lot around here. In addition to the babies, we have a 3 month old pup running around. Someone is always in a little bit of trouble and getting instruction in one way or another. With the puppy in the mix, it makes for some interesting times of chaos. The Hanged Man looks as if he is falling, rather than just hanging. It can certainly feel that way at times. I believe his britches are attached to the post, which leaves him actually just hanging, no matter the orientation of the card. His is still hanging.
Everyday around here is an adventure, and usually filled with little surprises. So whether its bath-time, story-time, meal-time, or nap-time, the Hanged Man offers his best wisdom—don’t get your britches in a bunch. Hang out with the “Ariel’s” and teach what lessons you can when you can. It’s Monday and it’s going to be a long day, so chill out awhile and make it a good one. Just “hanging-out” is very good advice indeed.
(*Ariel’s are what my 4yro granddaughter call Mermaids.)
