The Hanged Man
Going back to someone or something from your past isn’t normally a good
idea, as though 'going back' is a 'step backwards'. Although this may
sometimes hold true, it certainly isn't always the case.
Finding yourself in such a dilemma can cause a state of impasse or limbo
where you really don’t know what to do for the best. This brings me to The
Hanged Man card, a card that normally indicates the need to make some kind
of self-sacrifice, or indicates a need for you to give someone or
something up. We all know how very difficult this can be! ;- )
Contemplating how challenging such situations can be, especially when it
concerns affairs of the heart, inspired me to write The Sign Post reading,
which is now part of the membership readings.
How do you know what or who you should give up? Are you considering giving
up the right person or the right thing? Are you looking at your situation
from the right perspective? Perhaps all you need to ‘give up’ is a certain
attitude you have towards someone or something.
The Hanged Man doesn’t always mean giving up something material or giving
up a certain person. It can mean giving up inappropriate or negative
attitudes or emotions that are creating a state of impasse for you.
If you feel confused, or fearful of making the wrong choice or decision,
because of mixed emotions or powerful and addictive attractions, you can
focus or meditate on Tarot readings to help guide you to an intuitive
When The Hanged Man appears you can be pretty sure he’s saying ‘you’ve got
to give something or someone up in order to move on, or at the very least
try and look at your situation from a fresh perspective’.
In releasing ourselves from a situation that has become stale, neutral or
indeed negative, we can create a new freedom. Limbo-land, or a state where
you are lost without direction, is not a great place to be.
So if you find yourself asking questions such as:
should I go back to someone in my life or let them go?
should I go back to an ex-lover or not?
should I stay in my job or leave to pursue greater goals?
should I end an affair?
should I leave my partner?
should I accept that my current business attempts are
failing and go back to a job?
You may find ‘The Sign Post’ and the ‘what should I let go of’ readings
helpful guides when you’re making a difficult choice or trying to make the
decision that is right for you.
