Tarot : Hanged Man. Time for a different point of view ?
And there he was, suspended upside down by one leg from a tall tree, the other leg crossing. Though obviously in a predicament he seemed perfectly calm.
Then the voice in my mind came : “ This man has found a different perspective, all issues look different from here. He has released his ego, changed his priorities. He has put himself in this position of contemplation, a long road has brought him to this crossroads, he knew it was make or break. Can you imagine how powerful he can become when he chooses to no longer be suspended ?”
When the Hanged Man appears in your reading, your point of view must change. you must realise that to continue with your currently held view is pointless & futile. Sacrifice will be necessary, something that no longer serves you must be released, it could be a relationship that no longer feeds your soul or an addiction that does nothing but hold you back. Surrender your ego, realise that current events may indeed ‘turn your world upside down’.
By suspending himself the Hanged man is forcing himself to observe his situation from a different perspective, an act of purification, the Hanged Man is seeking a new truth.
Imagine yourself walking through the forest, chancing upon this man suspended from a high tree. What would be your initial reaction ? Imagine if it were you suspended, what would this different outlook force you to face ?
The Hanged Man symbolises a form of spiritual hibernation, is it now time for you to emerge with a raised vibration, energised with a totally different outlook ?
The Hanged Man, what happens when you are no longer suspended ?
