In favor of embracing the Hanged Man, I have nothing deep or clever to say today. I’m allowing myself to sit with the sense of injustice I’m seeing in the world right now and choosing to tenderly love myself rather than force myself into productivity. ❤
How can you use the energy of the Hanged Man today?
Symbolism & Interpretations
The Hanged Man is one of the most intriguing and mysterious tarot cards in the Major Arcana. Often depicted as a figure suspended upside down by one foot, this card represents surrender, sacrifice, and letting go. While its imagery may seem unsettling at first glance, the Hanged Man invites us to embrace the unknown and shift our perspective in order to gain a new understanding of our current situation.
The Hanged Man is a card of paradox and contradiction. Despite its name and depiction, it is not a card of death or suffering, but of voluntary surrender. The figure in the card is often shown with a serene expression, suggesting that he has accepted his current position and is at peace with it. The Hanged Man also represents suspension, as if the figure is caught between two worlds and is waiting for a new direction or insight to emerge.
Another key symbol in the Hanged Man is the number 12, which represents completion and the end of a cycle. This suggests that the figure is undergoing a significant transformation or spiritual journey that will lead to new beginnings and growth.
The Hanged Man reminds us that sometimes the greatest growth comes from surrendering control and allowing ourselves to be suspended in a state of uncertainty. By trusting the journey and embracing the unknown, we can gain a new perspective and move forward with clarity and purpose.
Affirmation: “I find peace and clarity through stillness and introspection.”
