|Dr.Nikki's Tarot -
|At first glance most people think the card The
Hanged Man is upside down. Suspended by his
ankle from the branches of the tree above him,
his hands are behind his back and his left leg is
bent at the knee. The man is youthful and
beautiful in appearance his body is trim and
haloed in the golden glow of the beautiful sunset
behind him. His only adornment, a simple
loincloth, alludes to the severity of the situation
he is in. It is somewhat alarming to turn the
card around and see that the Hanged Man’s
face is an expression of calm.
The calmness is generated from his willingness to
hang there (hands held behind him rather than
untying himself) in order to make the sacrifices in
the now that will create the future he wants.
The Hanged Man can talk about a time of feeling
stuck, life being put on hold. The Hanged Man shows
us how we can be changed and transformed by the
forces we experience as we walk our life’s path. If
Hanged Man has come to you today, look inside
yourself. Are you making the appropriate sacrifices (i.
e. doing the right things) to manifest the life you
desire? Are you being too selfish? Is it time to get
down off the rope and get your hands dirty building
that foundation? Are you throwing away your stores
|of energy unnecessarily? The Hanged Man calls you to adjust to your
positions, to evaluate where you are and to look ahead to the life you want.
The Hanged Man reminds us that a period of respite during transition can help
us to move in the right direction again.
