Health advice for 2015: Page of Wands reversed
I’m always struggling with making healthy choices in my life. I like to eat too much, sit around on my ass, and drink a lot of IPAs. This lack of energy and direction toward my heath and well-being, creates a lack of enthusiasm or optimism for starting a new regime or improving my health. Basically, I need new direction, and the Page of Wands reversed here is saying that it’s not going to be easy to find. I’m actually not even sure what I want to achieve with my health: get strong? lose weight? drink less? get over societal norms of healthy body image? I feel like there are too many obstacles, too many balls in the air, too much going on in other areas of my life to give this the time and energy it deserves. Basically, I’m feeling pessimistic. So, I see this card as a warning that I need to decide what healthy means to me and try a new approach to getting there. I’m lacking fire and drive regarding my health, and aren’t quite ready for a new start. I need to look for something that inspires me, something that I’m passionate about, something creative and new to drive my health goals in 2015.

Finally I asked: How can we change our perspective at this time?
Sometimes when we are stuck, in order to move forward we need to be able to see things from a different perspective. The Page of Wands reminds to start from the very beginning. Perhaps we are all fired up to be the Queen of Wands who has all her shit together, knows just how to do things beautifully and perfectly, and dazzles everyone with her skills. Yet here is the Page to show us that that mastery began with a simple desire to learn, to try, to work your way up. If you’re feeling like your pie in the sky dream is totally unobtainable, take a step back and consider that you are starting at the beginning. Congratulate yourself for even acknowledging your passion and dreams, and then set yourself some smaller, less daunting goals, that will get you moving in the right direction.
