The Tower and The Hanged Man cards together – what do they mean?
The Tower and The Hanged Man Are caught in a trap of chaos and procrastination. They represent uncertainty and delay in situations.
Life: Stagnation, too much going on, can’t seem to handle what life is offering
Love: Backing away from confrontation, looking from an alternative view
Career: Biding your time, letting others go first, delaying progression
Health: Making excuses, not allowing change to shape your future
Whilst it is all well and good allowing yourself the time to think and regroup, you mustn’t think that you get to avoid all decision making as a consequence. Change awaits and is going nowhere.
The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
The Hanged Man Interpretation
The Hanged Man suspends his thoughts and actions, uncertain of his next move.
Although you hang in the moment between stagnation and action, you are making the most of this time by using your thoughts to gain traction once more. You may sometimes feel as though nothing is developing as you await your next step patiently, but there is action bubbling under the surface.
Your heart knows that important aspects of life cannot be rushed. Love sometimes takes time, and you cope fairly with biding your time and waiting for the right moment. You may feel uncertain about your current job and want to think about your next steps. We are all allowed a change of heart and in the planning, we prepare for success.
Right now, as you sacrifice your time, you are seeing the world and your options from a different angle. It is like stepping out of the picture to admire the scenery. There is no urgency in your mind, and this natural pause will offer clarity and contemplation.
