I have been trying to think of ways in which I could make the Birth Card pairs come to life. I thought that it might be fun to have a Birth Card pair chatting over coffee or drinks. I was going to work with the gentlest Birth Card pair that I could find, just so the conversation would be, shall we say, a “nice, quiet one” Best laid plans, and all of that. The first two individuals that choose to speak were the ones that were the hardest for me to write about – The Devil and The Lovers. They choose to speak over drinks … fair warning! Today’s Birth Card pair are the Hanged Man and the Empress. They are sitting on the porch of the vacation home of the Empress, a porch that faces the Pacific ocean. It is a warm summer day, with a light breeze coming in off the water. They have just finished lunch, and are drinking iced tea and chatting.
The Hanged Man has taken on the form of a man in his early 50’s that very closely resembles George Clooney. Nicely cut graying hair, aviator sunglasses to protect his eyes against the glare of the sun, crisp khaki’s and a short sleeved summer shirt. His name is Stephan Gregorios.
“Joelle, lunch was incredible, as always! I love coming out here – it is so relaxing. Just the time-out that I need.”
The Empress has taken on the form of a woman in her early 50’s. Her hair is shoulder length, and blond. She is wearing over-sized sunglasses that compliment her round face, and a floral print, short sleeved dress, with dolphin earrings in her ears.
“Stephan, you are always welcome here. I understand that the nature of your work keeps you on the move – I am happy to be able to provide a respite.” Taking a deep drink of iced tea, her eyes follow the boats out in the water.
“How do you think we stand, Stephan? The year 2012 really is a fulcrum year for humankind. Is there anything more that we can be doing for them to get them ready for what is coming?”
“Joelle, how like you to want to nurture the coming changes. Much of what they have been asked to do relates to their releasing their past, so that they can walk into their future with intent and purpose. The scary part for them was in recognizing that they needed to do this. They are adjusting well, and are allowing themselves to process the changes. They may feel right now that they are spinning out of control, but they are not. They will do well.”
Joelle continued to gaze out over the water. While her mind was on the conversation, her soul was in a meditative mode. “What about those who are having difficulty with the change? Those who, shall we say, are still a bit “iffy”?”
“We cannot make their choices for them. There will always be those in humankind that do not fit in with their time. It has always been this way, and will continue to be so. They have to take responsibility for themselves.”
Joelle sighed. “Yes, I know. We cannot put the burden of the masses on just a few people. I am pleased that they are realizing that they need to connect with Mother Earth in a more significant fashion. If they had not done so, their time here would be numbered, and we would be off on another assignment.”
Stephan stood up, stretching his shoulders and holding his hand out to Joelle. “Let’s go take a walk on the beach. The connection with water will do us both some good, and, in this human form, we need to remember to exercise out bodies.”
Joelle laughed as she took Stephan’s hand and stood up. “Right you are, as usual!”
Together, they walked down the path to the beach, where they could step out of work mode for a moment and simply unite with spirit.
