This is such an apt card for the current times. We are being asked to isolate while the Covid germ runs around - and it can feel like we are being forced to do something against our will - but we need to look at it in a different light. The Hanged Man is perfect for this.
The Hanged Man
Crowley tells us that this Hanged Man symbolizes the descent of the light into the darkness in order to redeem it. A massive sacrifice that will create/sustain/destroy the Universe. Crowley also seems to feel that the Hanged Man as a whole doesn't really fit into the New Aeon tarot deck anymore. and warns us that, the whole idea of sacrifice is a misconception of nature." It is counterproductive.
This Hanged Man still represents the descent of light into darkness but not to redeem it as such. Redemption here is the duty of the enlightened to bring that enlightenment to the unenlightened. This is where we stop and rest in the moment - assess the situation, until we see our way forward. Take this opportunity to reflect on all the things - and be ready to share your observations to help others!
