THE HANGED MAN in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Delays, patience required, go with the flow.
This card has a mixture of Red, (basic instincts) Blue (communication) and Yellow (internal power and spiritual connection), which are all quite balanced.
The Hanged Man looks very serene and calm, almost as if he is quietly waiting for and expecting something to happen. There is no resistance with this card. There is almost a sense of contentment.
The cross is called a T-cross and is a very old symbol. The position the figure is hanging is called Tau. It is a very old meditation position.
This card can be about delays, and also the need to let go of old stuff, to go with the flow and to be patient.
Sometimes we need to stop pushing and forcing and let matters take their own natural course.
There is an element of contemplation and maybe the solutions lie in thought and meditation, rather than in busy-ness.
Perhaps there is a need for a new perspective or to view something from the completely opposite direction. You certainly see the world very differently when you look at it upside- down.
With abundant blessings.
