This card in a spread clearly points to the will in the consultant, his/her intention and free will practice, if you want the most abstract areas in a being. It´s densification, connection to Earth, reincarnation and a vital project.
We have to amplify our view, broaden our perception framework to perceive the global movement´s tendency. We could have had very accurate and concrete indications about the consultant´s actions and circumstances but also need to bear in mind where all that comes from.
This arcana set is one of the most esoterics in Tarot. As you had already seen in other articles about major arcana (Compared Tarot), each set of cards talks about a specific topic but each topic cannot be separated from the others: a whole deck is one unity itself.
Intention to get closer, densify, resonate and awaken, and thus Earth products will be tangible. Taurus, Pisces and their ruñes are very important in this arcane. Graphically, Neptune (feet and head) and the unified four elements. Esoterically, latency (Moon) in its potential fertility (Taurus), cohesion (Venus) reminding us of the unity that dissolves differences between «spirit» and «matter» (Pisces).
This meeting is a profound love act, reincarnation that ignores separation, life pouring upon itself, upon its different forms. If we get this card in a reading, we´ll discard blindness, ignorance in movements or any sense of loss. On the contrary, we´ll suppose strong intention, resolutive direction and very concrete goals, all this tinged with a strong impulse towards integration.
The Hanged Man seems to resign when he forgets or loses of sight the origin of his actions, when the forms by the experience turn to concrete and differentiated, getting away from the starting point, the one explaining the reading situation. We´ll have to track, then, how the inquired topic with cards had originated.
This arcane also indicates things go through changes in darkness, during a time that will end up definitely transforming the expression forms (if other arcana in the spread don´t say the opposite). Other factors will also intervene, disparate elements will join in new products and all this will be characterized by the expression of fertility in the matter: a relationship, a business, a project, an idea, an object to transform.
If you´re interested in deepening into this esoteric way to read arcana for The Hanged Man, you can read The Force (11) and Death (13). You can also integrate this card as a transition card between The Priestess (2) and The Hermit (9).
