Thoth Deck Tarot: Key 12- THE HANGED MAN

Key 12-The Hanged man, is attributed to the Hebrew letter Mem, which means Water. Mem is a Maternal letter meaning the Element Water and the Amniotic Fluid of the Womb.. This is of no surprise, since the Gnostic believe that the Homo-Sapiens is a evolution of a marine mammal, rather than ape, and that the  Noah's Ark and the Flood is a hieratic presentation of the facts of life. There are many scientists that also believe the marine mammal theory because of the fact we have more in common with marine mammals than apes. I would suggest you research this, as I am about the Tarot here and not seeking to become an anthropologist.
 To continue : The Hanged Man represents the baptism that is also a death. Death being a transformation from one reality to another, as is birth where the Water Mammal, must become a land-mammal. The symbolizim of the Hanged Man is often attributed to Self-Sacrifice, but this is really and errant idea. In the last Aeon of Osiris, the Hanged Man represented the supreme formula for adeptship for the figure that is hung is actually the Spirit "drowning"(baptised) in the Astral Fluid, before becoming manifest in form. The Astrals, are where  all the Forces and Forms of the "Above Sephira" meet in order to combine in a manifestation as a physical birth in the material world. To the flesh-o-phobe this would be the effect  of spiritual purity being sacrifice to animal debasement.
To the Spirit, this is the way of transforming from idea to experience; from Self, to Self-Awareness. Being in the flesh, requires Spirit to become aware of its thoughts and how they affect the living dimply by the reactions of those thoughts in the living form. Think ill, be ill, think well be well etc.
 Idea or visions, in the Aeon of Osiris, were considered more important than the flesh, and the destruction of bodies in the name of idea/visions (Commonly called,"For the Greater Good') seemed a just cause. In the Aeom of Osiris , it could be said that the foundation of thought was the ruling of definition by the few who enforced definition on the many.. In this Age of Horus, the idea must "expand and liberate; the living from their own self-imposed limits, allowing the Foundation of Love ("Love thy neighbor as thyself') to become the "common mind" where union rather than divisionism becomes the conscious foundation of all action.
 Simply stated,  the self in manifestation is more important than the ides of self. However, the caveat here is that, you must at first love yourself....as you can't give to another what you don't have, thus requiring that above all things you must know yourself!
The Aeon of Horus, is the age where the hu (god) man (mind) realizes it is the child of god and becomes the Christ consciousness on Earth, thus uniting the Above and the Below. That union is seen in the Hanged Man, whose foot is connected to the Ank (symbolized in the West as the Rosy Cross) which is a combination of  Goddess- God--Womb and Phallus, and is known as a symbol for eternal universe in a sigil of Mankind. The ancients knew that if it was made manifest, it was a truth, because Creation made it.  Ideas are not a truth, unless they can become "made manifest" by the Power of Creation and/or the ability to do work, In a more personal note; you exist because you're supposed to! The judgment of you has already been made by God who obivously aproved your manifestation!  In other words,the obviousness of your presence proves you are worthy of  being! This kind of thinking doesn't bode well for those who wish to "rule you", so dividing you from your "god" by a religion made of flesh hating rules, will assure your enslavement. The Hanged Man illustrates that being born into the World is a baptism, not a trial to prove your worth!
The Hanged Man presents a special meaning to the adept,the legs are crossed so the right leg forms a right angle to the left leg, and the arms are stretched out at an angle of 60 degrees, so as to form an equilateral triangle. The symbol thus present is that of the Triangle surmounted by the Cross which represents the descent of light( conscious energy) into darkness (unconsious) in order to redeem it! Love must become aware of itself "as being"! The process of redemption continues in the symbology of the green disks terminating at the head and limbs, representing the influence of Venus which is the planetary symbol of Grace and beauty. You may note, that the Central Sephiroth on the Tree of Life, is called  both Beauty and the Christ Conscious. The Hang Man represents the redeeming value of baptising idea in flesh, so that it may Live and "Know itself"!
I'll continue this blog tomorrow in Key12, the Hanged Man-part 2. Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
