For all my “oh my gosh this is my Chariot year, things are going to go SO FAST”, I’m finding myself more and more in the 2019 energy of the Hanged Man/Hanged One — feeling a little suspended, a little pensive. All I can really do while I wait is lean into it, and so I pulled together some choice Hanged Man quotes from my library and my notebook.
If they wanted to go free, they could. Why are they in this situation? Transitional time. … Perspective, serenity, clarity. … Find some perspective for higher knowledge. — my tarot journal
Find stillness, open your eyes, and use this new perspective to learn something. You’re stuck here either way. — The Wild Unknown Tarot Guidebook, Kim Krans
In a state of total surrender, the Hanged Man is in a space of retreat and solitude. This is not a tortured state, but a state of meditation. — Wanderer’s Tarot Guidebook, Casey Zabala
If the Hanged Man has come up for you, know that everything is in motion, even if it feels like nothing is moving. That’s the nature of the Hanged Man. It’s a waiting game, and the waiting can be interminable. It’s not a time for activity. — Modern Tarot, Michelle Tea
Like a snake shedding its skin, The Hanged Man sheds only what is ready to leave us. — WTF is Tarot, Bakara Wintner
Where everyone else is frenzied, you will know peace. Where other people believe themselves to be free, but are actually pushed from one thing to another by forces they do not understand, you will achieve true freedom by understanding and embracing those forces. — 78 Degrees of Wisdom, Rachel Pollack
