Weekly Tarot Card – The Hanged Man Reversed

In its upright position, this card shows a man hanging upside down from a tree. Interesting to note the card is called “The Hanged Man” not “The Hanging Man” which seems to imply that he has completed “dying” to his old self and hangs in the interim waiting for the reveal of a new body. The message is surrender to the now and look at things from a different angle, sacrifice old beliefs in order to gain new insights.

In this week’s pull the card appears in its reversed position, meaning the man is hanging no more. He is ready to step back into the world with new understandings and a different bearing. The halo around his head illumines his path forward into a new day.

It’s time to return from your period of retreat. Use the information gained from the different perspective and value what your surrender and sacrifice has taught you. Bring these qualities into the world to contribute to the benefit of all.

Weekly Tarot Card – The High Priestess Reversed

img_0141Whenever I pull a Major Arcana card reversed I tend to interpret the reversal as a call to take the message of the card inwards. We know the Major Arcana is a group in the tarot deck having to do with great life lessons. ┬áTherefore it stands to reason that the reversal points to an internal focus rather than the customary delays or postponements of everyday situations. Perhaps there is a resistance or lack of awareness of a certain energy or practice. The High Priestess sits on her throne wearing beautiful blue robes the color of spiritual knowledge. She guards the veil to the unknown and those wishing to see beyond are instructed to look within. And so I dedicate 5-10 minutes daily THIS WEEK to meditate and listen to my inner voice. If I don’t hear anything I will look for signs in other phenomena. I will abide within and wait upon my soul. For the High Priestess encourages me with her mystical gaze to peer within for the answers I long to find. Will you join me in this practice?
