The Hanged Man #12 tarot reading interpretation

The Hanged Man #12 tarot reading interpretation

Associate with # 12 – Element Water – Sign Pisces – Planet Neptune, the planet of self-sacrifice and idealism.

The Hanged Man tarot and Neptune are associated with fantasy- imagination- and visual arts. In the Roman mythology Neptune was the god of the deep and dark oceans, with their mysterious world.  This tarot card #12 represents  people that are idealistic, sensitive and very psychic; the 12 th. house is a place of confinement, mental sickness and secrets.  Neither one is good at establishing boundaries; they tend to escape from reality through meditation, prayer, sleep, dreams; or taking refuge in alcohol and drugs.

During a psychic tarot reading this cards represents a change of opinion, a suspension of responsibilities or a retreat.  Therefore his image does not show pain, discomfort or sacrifice. To the opposite he seems to be tuned into a higher consciousness, and it’s a reward, not a punishment.

In the  Tarot card image The Hanged Man # 12  you can see that he is not hanging from his neck but from his feet, because he has consciously decided not to step forward to the future – but to contemplate life from a different angle.  At this point in life he decided to wait and contemplate his options.

His right foot is bound to the tree but his left foot remains free, bent at the knee and tucked in behind his right leg. His arms are bent, with hands held behind his back, forming an inverted triangle. The man is wearing red pants representing human passion and the physical body, a blue coat for knowledge, and yellow shoes representing his high ideals. Around the Hanged Man’s head is a bright yellow halo showing spiritual attainment, with the grey background suggesting invisibility (a good reminder to not flaunt your spirituality). This is the card of ultimate surrender, of being suspended in time and of martyrdom and sacrifice to the greater good.
