Tarot Triumphs: The Hanged Man may look alarming on first viewing. He is often taken to be a dead man, a criminal who has been hung, or a traitor suspended by his feet according to the Italian custom, and his name at first (Le Pendu in French) seems to support that theory.35 But the way he is depicted suggests that he is in fact an acrobat. In nearly every version, he looks calm and happy, a man who is in control of what he’s doing. Reverse the usual meaning, and you will find a man studying the world in reverse!

Reversed Cards: I know it can get hard to imagine this card has a positive element to it. I mean, the card is known as the Lord of Defeat. But even defeat can serve you. Walking away, letting something go, and letting someone have the upper hand, if only for the time being, can protect your mental well-being. Conflict is not always the answer, and sometimes it is best to let the game play out with no resistance or control from you. Trust the process. What seems like a defeat will quickly turn into something positive if you can just walk away and not look back.
