I Am the Hanged Man. What Card Are You?

You are the Hanged Man

Self-sacrifice, Sacrifice, Devotion, Bound.

With the Hanged man there is often a sense of fatalism, waiting for something to happen. Or a fear of
loss from a situation, rather than gain.

The Hanged Man is perhaps the most fascinating card in the deck. It reflects the story of Odin who offered himself as a sacrifice in order to gain knowledge. Hanging from the world tree, wounded by a spear, given no bread or mead, he hung for nine days. On the last day, he saw on the ground runes that had fallen from the tree, understood their meaning, and, coming down, scooped them up for his own. All knowledge is to be found in these runes.

The Hanged Man, in similar fashion, is a card about suspension, not life or death. It signifies selflessness, sacrifice and prophecy. You make yourself vulnerable and in doing so, gain illumination. You see the world differently, with almost mystical insights.

Thinking About Faeries

Fairy and Unicorn - ©Michael Hague

Spread your wings and let the fairy in you fly!  ~Author Unknown

Fairies are invisible and inaudible like angels.  But their magic sparkles in nature. 
 ~Lynn Holland

Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.
~William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894

Current Astrological Tansits: Take the High Road

Okay friends, we've got a Pluto Moon conjunction squared (see stressful) by Mercury Uranus conjunction. Those are some seriously heavy energies.

Think before you speak. Work on your own behavour before pointing your fingers at others.

In fact, take the High Road! Don't worry about what other people are doing.

Speaking of the High Road, retrograde Mars is opposing (see that guy over there is stopping me from doing whatever) Neptune.

Write a poem. Listen to some music. Paint a picture. Watch a movie. Meditate. Practice unconditional love. Keep your heart open. Chill.
