The Hanged Man is one of those Major Arcana cards which tend to have a rather poor reputation – undeservedly, in my opinion. He represents the necessary process of surrender and sacrifice, which is probably why he is not greeted with open arms. Yet both actions are a part of everyday life. We just fail to understand that, every time we make a choice between two equally desirable options, we sacrifice one in order to have the other. We surrender one state to achieve another. In fact, the Hanged Man can often indicate a period of apparent inertia, where new concepts and tenets are being absorbed. Once we have digested this new material, we can emerge from our period of inactivity with a fresh approach to things. So sometimes the Hanged Man presents us with an important method of self-development. In most Tarot decks, there’s an important visual link between the Emperor and the Hanged Man – both these figures are depicted with their legs forming the figure 4. 4 is a number connected to ideas about material stability. The Emperor often represents a man who has achieved much in the material sphere. He is usually a dynamic and energetic person who forcefully directs his will toward the attainment of his desires.

In a sense, we can see the Hanged Man as an outgrowth of the Emperor – though now it is not the material world which is the object of his aspiration – it is the spiritual realm in which he is interested. So, on a day ruled by the Hanged Man, take a little time out to consider what your current spiritual aspirations are. Write them down and think them over. Think back to the last time you attempted to assess your current journey and see whether you feel you have achieved some of the things you aimed for. And above all, recognise something. This journey of the spirit is like any other – we achieve it step by step, moment by moment. We will always be surrendering things along the way – and we need always to be open to new input, new concepts, new pages to be written in the book of life.

Book Details
Development for Beginners: The bottom line here is that if you make a concerted effort to listen to your subconscious, your psychic work will be greatly abetted. If an unexpected thought flashes into your mind, do not ignore or dismiss it. Follow through with it to see if it can be useful to you and/or lead you to the discovery of a hidden or subdued feeling or idea. Although, answers may not always come to you as literal messages; they will often occur more figuratively, leaving you to interpret their meaning.

Tarot for Beginners: This was the first full Tarot deck designed exclusively for divination, and is widely credited with popularizing the Tarot, which had once been more or less exclusively studied in secret by occult societies. It has been known as the Rider-Waite deck, crediting the original publishers, William Rider & Son, but has more recently, and accurately, been called the Waite-Smith deck, in order to give due credit to the artist responsible for the images on the cards.

Tarot for Beginners: Death may appear in a reading when a situation is naturally ending, reminding us to let go of what is dead or useless, the way a tree will shed its leaves to make room for the new growth that will eventually manifest. Another appropriate symbol for this card is the mythical Phoenix, who cyclically rises from the ashes of its own demise. This card follows The Hanged Man as the soul learns to let go of the old in preparation for the new.
