12 – The Hanged Man

Card:  12 – The Hanged Man

Deck:  The Vertigo Tarot

Visual Description:  A figure, inhumanly thin, hangs upside down from a spindly tree.  It’s legs form a number 4, it’s arms are tightly bound to it’s body. Below, glowing with a golden light, is a celestial drawing showing the sun and phases of the moon.  Above, a formless glow that looks like a red aurora borealis.  Around the head and upper body of the figure are a swarm of metallic specks, like insects.

Astrological Attributions:  Neptune

My Stuff:  

Odin on the World Tree

Sacrifice for gain

Stasis, suspension

Letting go

Things will happen in their own time

Relax

Going deep inside, trance
