Halloween Oracle (Blue Angel, 2014)!
Mummy stares out at us from under those bandages with spookily alive
eyes. The keyword is Change, and the image makes me think of someone
who has had plastic surgery and is waiting for the bandages to come
off. In many ways, that's probably pretty similar to the idea of
mummification: a time of preparation and waiting before being reborn
into the afterlife/a better life.
This is a good reminder for
me. Yesterday, I again listened to a hypnotherapy induction, and didn't
eat any chocolate or biscuits. However, two days of good habits don't
defeat a year of poor eating choices. So, like the Mummy, I must wait
patiently, knowing things are changing on the inside, even if nothing is visible yet.
This is a tough one for
a lot of folks, I know. You start doing all the right things, but
there is no progress right away, so it can be tempting to feel
like it's not working, or that it is too long and arduous a path. This
card is a bit like the Hanged Man, and reminds me that big changes can
take time. Yeah, cos patience is my strongest suit, not! Ah well, one
day at a time...
