The Hanged Man as a Daily Tarot Oracle Card
Oracle Message: Time stands still for no man but sometimes time doesn’t make any sense at all.
The Hanged Man doesn’t turn your world upside down like the Tower. Instead, it asks you turn yourself upside down and see something from a different perspective. Seeing something through someone else’s eyes can help you understand a situation better. You must remind yourself that opinions don’t make facts and opinions can change.
While you are pondering the finer points of something you got wrong, you may or may not notice that you have literally stopped doing anything else. This makes for a less than productive day and you may feel you achieve nothing at all except ponder your thoughts. If you can only see from one direction, they needed checking.
In other ways, the Hanged Man can create problems through delays, inertia and time just seemingly doing its own thing. It’s an Alice in Wonderland kind of day so roll with the punches and if you need to check yourself, you’ll have plenty of time to do it.
