A necessary pause.
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. This is the annihilation of the self in the Beloved - a devotional ecstasy that dissolves all sense of separateness. 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.
So, that sounds painful and uncomfortable but in reality we have something we need to learn here. It is usually when our lives hit a crisis that we discover things in our lives that no longer serve us well and we need to ponder these for a time. Hanging in this place isn't easy but it is necessary. Think of it this way - things we can change easily can happen here, if we pause to really look at what is happening. If we don't, we hit Death and if we don't deal with it there, The Tower comes in to sweep it all away for us. Take the time to pause now.
