The 3 Symbols from Left to Right:
1. Water (mirror, reflection, self-reflection)
2. Neptune (Astrological Planet)
3. the Hebrew Letter, Mem (meaning Water: nourishing, purifying, suspending, protecting, dissolving, reflecting, baptizing)
Golden Dawn Title: The Spirit of the Mighty Waters
Some possible meanings: Surrender and trust. See the world from a different perspective, that is reverse of the "race mind", from a centered or more spiritual position. Unconventional, alternative conduct. Meditation, contemplation, self-reflection. Patience & Sacrifice. Suspension of judgement and of the Manas (Sanskrit meaning personal mental activity, the word man comes from Manas, so the traditional title "the Hanged Man" means to suspend the mind. ).
The Hanged One shows us how to suspend judgement of ourselves and others. We are all One breathing, manifesting, universal being expanding and igniting, ever-changing, ever-moving-forward into nothingness. Infinitely creating individual sparks from the same source, an eternal source not able to be named for as soon as it is attempted, it changes form. Releasing the need to always "do", inviting the pendulum to come to center and in this way finding inner equilibrium. The capacity to heal, love and restore peace exists here. The Hanged One knows this and is at ease with the circumstances, accepting even the pain. Suspend the Manas, suspend the mind, that unquenchable monkey. It has its place but it too must rest. Clarity comes when we can suspend as the Hanged One does, the Surrendered One…the Suspended One. We can then reverse our attitude, our thoughts, or situation; thinking in terms of success instead of failure and fear.
