Reversed Cards: Unlike the blocked aspect of this card, here in the protection aspect you are being warned to not leave your healing state too soon. Your mind may be telling you there is so much to get done and you have rested long enough. The truth is you still need to give your body some more time, perhaps just another forty-eight hours, but it will be the difference between a full recovery and finding yourself knocked off your feet and laid up in bed yet again. Your mind may be ready to take on the world, but your body is just not there yet.
