For an ordered list of Tarot lessons go to the link at the upper right hand side of the blog and view the lessons in order. If this is your first time here you really need to start at the beginning to learn about the tarot journals, how I set them up and how you can use my technique to learn to intuitively and emotionally connect more deeply to your cards.
The purpose is not to just read other interpretations and use those, but to learn how to see the cards deeply from your own perspective. that process is what allows you to become a good reader. If you spend all your time memorizing the interpretations of others you will eventually lose interest (and not be the best Tarot reader you can be)
The Hanged Man
The first obvious thing in this picture is of course the man is hanging upside down by his foot.
He has a halo looking light around his head. The greenery grows in the background.
He doesn’t appear to be upset or struggling – more complacent like he has accepted his fate and so he just hangs there.
This card speaks to me of “comfort zones” – things that are not necessarily good for you, do not lead to growth, but yet for whatever reason you become resigned and continue to just hang in there.
The greenery in the background suggests to me that there are “greener pastures” waiting if one can just correct their path and right themselves.
The halo suggests to me wisdom and meditation – connecting with the Universal mind or one’s higher power to look for solutions rather than struggling or fighting what is
In the stillness our answers come which allow us to see clearly how to correct our path.
