This week: The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man advises to wait. Put your feet up and chill. Let go and allow the Universe to sort things out.
Because this card can also symbolize sacrifice, it may be advising you to do just that: make a sacrifice. Take one for the team.
Surrender to the situation. Stop struggling. Give up and trust that things will work out as need be.
Depending on the context of the question, this card can also say: hang in there. Just a little bit longer….
One of my favorite interpretations involves yoga! In yoga, it is believed that inversions shake things up and give you a new perspective. This card can be advising just that: take a different look at the situation. If you don’t like the way it looks, look at it differently.
The Hanged Man can represent a test of faith – if you feel as if your faith is indeed being tested, this card says: have faith!
Hanged Man reversed:
Let go. As I often say: no one gets spiritual by hanging on to a situation or a person – or even an idea. Sometimes we need to let go.
This card can also be suggesting learning to land on your own two feet. Have faith in YOURSELF.
Instead of being still, the Hanged Man advises to take action. The time to wait is over – now it’s time to move!
If you’ve been making too many sacrifices, stop. You don’t have to be a martyr or a saint. It’s okay to put your needs first.
Questions to ponder:
How does patience show up in your life? When have you made a worthy sacrifice? What might your life look – or feel – like if you operated with blind faith? Where do you need to let go?
