12 - The Hanged Man

The Fool journeys to The Hanged Man and finds himself suspended upside down, looking at the world from a different viewpoint than normal. For him, events in his life will be up in the air or on hold, leading him to new views of his life or situation. He wants to find an independent viewpoint, to see his life free from the opinions of others. He sacrifices what is not needed and lets go of what is in the way so he can focus on a new perspective. His mind is very active, reflecting, reviewing, and overturning stones while he views situations from all angles.

All of a sudden, things are seen from a new angle, or we are in desperate need of seeing them from one! If things look the same, you will know that it is the latter.

Our goal here should be to pause play while we gain a new perspective and turn every stone to find what we're looking for, which is something we will know when we have it because we will feel it in every fiber of our being. Life can feel turned upside down, and now is a good time to calmly look at life, collecting information from what we see, and allowing things to unfold without interference.

We can feel static, yet our minds will be filled with thoughts, so a lot will be going on, and we can dare to think without the constraints of those things that we may normally allow to hold us back. Right now, be independent in your thinking and think outside of the box, or even throw the darn thing away.

We can feel, or even be, removed from situations as we wait with patience while our minds cogitate and formulate that different view. At times, this means we sacrifice one thing to allow another to develop, be worked through, or be created.

Look at any issues you have from all directions and from all points of view before considering a conclusion.

Imagine that your life is happening outside of a coffee shop, with you sitting there "people- or life-watching," gaining a new view of your own reality.

I ordered a book (Understanding Tarot) online, but it was taking too long to get here. Ends up Amazon has it for Kindle as well and it’s on sale right now. I bought the kindle addition and oh, my goodness! If you don’t have this book, you’ll want to get it. Every card is described in great detail and so much information about tarot. I can’t wait to dive into the book! Thank you Pam Richards for sharing your knowledge with everyone. I won’t need anymore tarot books or manuals now.

I seek Pam's guidance frequently when I'm unsure how best to proceed. She has such a wonderful connection to the cards and always sees things and explains the cards separately and as a whole. Her insight has been spot on in the past. All types of relationships can be complicated at times. She helps me navigate those relationships more confidently knowing I'm on the right path. I highly recommend Pam!
