The Daily Draw: Page of Wands, Reversed

page of wandsprying eyes(Did I tell you I don’t do weekends? At the moment it’s hard to find the time with family considerations.)

Page of Wands, reversed: There is a perfect opportunity here to be bold and creative, to move in the direction your spirit wants to take you, whether that be in the theatre, the studio, the kitchen, the garden shed, or just a few steps beyond the margins of the daily routine.

There is also a perfect opportunity to have your inner sense of direction derailed by the raised eyebrows and unanswerable questions of others – how can you possibly explain satisfactorily to your neighbours why you are suddenly doing naked yoga in your bedroom when it is so outside of their perception of your character. Lucky for you, an explanation is not required. Not from you anyway. I might wonder how the neighbours know what you’re up to in your bedroom. It might be time to ring the Gards, or at least close the blinds.

Worrying about what the neighbours think, which gives them permission to define who you are, at least in part, is a great way to block yourself from being yourself and expressing who you really are. Alternatively, you might be lacking in self-confidence or suffering from not-good-enough syndrome. Been there, done that, worn the T-shirt, hid in the broom closet.

The best way to find out whether you’re going in the right direction is to actually go in that direction for a while and see how it feels. If it doesn’t feel right, pick another direction. It’s a lot more fulfilling than standing on the threshold for eternity wondering if that’s the right way to go. And don’t worry too much about what people think. If you’ve been hiding aspects of yourself from people, they already don’t know you as well as they think they do, and they certainly are’’t close friends. Try not to be concerned. Move in the direction that’s right for you and you will likely meet fellow travelers.
