XII-The Hanged Man

This card represents voluntary suspension of the self in order to gain new perspective. Each of us can be so set in our ways that it is hard to find common ground. There comes a time when it’s worthwhile to get off the ground completely for a while, to try something different. New answers are provided when you examine a problem or situation from a different angle. It’s time to let go of attitudes and perspectives that are holding you back. A little playful rearranging of the mind is a good thing!

I am generally super easygoing, but there are some hard control-freak tendencies underlying. It’s a conscious task to work through my urges to pick at and rearrange, and sometimes it even seeps out in the form of resentment and passive-aggression. Trying so hard to rewire automatic tendencies is as silly as hanging upside down from a tree! It’s true that opening the mind is necessary to form new perspectives, but maybe a total physical upheaval is the only thing that will truly shake up those responses for the better.

Get out of the house and do something new today!
