I posted this image of the Hanged Man tarot card because people have such a strong reaction to it — it’s SCARY. I have a hard time explaining to them that there’s actually a positive side to this card. Even though he is upside-down, it’s not all about being hung-up.
This is exactly the position that many of us find ourselves in when society is being turned on it’s head. After all of the valuables fall out of his pockets, there is still something left. If you don’t lose faith at the last-minute you might find out what that treasure really is.
In these challenging times, we need to be clever, like the cunningfolk or wise people of the past. Just as farmers do today, they utilized the power of the new moon to start projects and sow new seeds.
The Hanged Man doesn’t look like he’s quite ready to rise, get a move-on and start a bunch of new stuff. He looks rather spent. But he’s actually busy doing the prep work that forms the foundation of anything worth carrying out in the physical world. He’s dreaming and sleeping with the fishes (or in this case with the coiled-up snake near his head). The Hanged Man is in a state of altered-consciousness, a state of meditation. Was he stuck there or did he decide to take on that funny position willingly because it was blissful?
Get a jumpstart on the next two weeks ahead
1. Stop and reflect. Be still like the fishes and the snakes are right now as they hibernate underground. They are completely wrapped up in their inner world, tuning into the subconscious, feeling at-one with the earth. This is the time when going within and getting comfortable with yourself is the most productive thing you can do.
2. Enjoy the trip and receive illumination. Letting go the concerns of the outer world for a moment and not allowing your ego to rule the show can result in amazing revelations. One’s worth becomes magically restored when time is allowed to let accumulated feelings and experiences wash away. Space to dream the new into existence starts to open up. Feel the blood stir, the energy rising.
3. Break the connection with your head, tune into your heart, jump off the hanging post and share the love and the fruitful visions you’ve had with humanity. Now that you’ve gently forgiven yourself and experienced your imaginative and emotional depths, you can more easily open up and be less judgmental of others. Willingly let go of differences in order to merge and create something more beautiful together than any one person could do by themselves. Start happily swimming with the fishes! Feel a part of the human family.
