A different perspective on the Hanged Man

My first thought when I looked at this card is well there is the light that was missing in the Hermit's card on Monday.
Are ghosts really spirits with unfinished business?
I am not sure I get this card. The LWB postulates that in ancient China being treated badly with no recourse for justice was a reason for suicide.  Pretty drastic to prove a point that you were right and another wrong.
I have been contemplating this card for a half hour or so and really have nothing.  Maybe that is the point.  The Hanged Man in suspension releases cognitive thoughts and gains enlightenment.  All I need to do is let go of my need to have some meaning to this card and somewhere along clarity will be gained.

  1. I think you're right, there are some things we can't think ourselves out of, we just have to be patient and attentive to what comes without force.

  2. Ah. That was the grinding noise that woke me up...

  3. Often it is not about the answer but about asking the right question. :)

    1. I just have to re-member that Mercury is still retrograde and all is not as it seems.
