Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- Key 12- The Hanged Man & The Witches Tarot-Key 12- The Hanged Man

The Tarot of Eli:
The Thoth Tarot- Key 12- The Hanged Man & The Witches Tarot-Key12- The Hanged Man.


 Key 12 in the Thoth and traditional Tarot, is named the Hanged Man. 
However, in  traditional tarot, the Hanged man was often dressed as a jester, whose colorful clothing represent the four elements, yellow for air, Red for fire, blue for Water and green for earth. In Medieval society, the jester was the inversion of the king image, and considered the sacrificial victim or "the kings whipping boy". 

In the Witches Tarot-Key 12-The bound foot the Hanged man is hanging from implies self-sacrifice , a giving up of something for something of greater value, and not pious martyrdom. There really is no loss here. What is being sacrificed is narrow vision, survival thinking, misconceptions brought on by the illusions of the physical world. Since the physical world is a world of Reflected Light, it is as a mirror and thinking that what you are seeing is the "true image" is a reversal, and/or upside down thinking. All Images consist of 99.6% space, so what you are seeing is really very little of what is really there. In the Real World of Spirit-Consciousness, the "I's" have it; not the eyes have it. We see only what we think we are, perspectives provide our individual reality and what we think the world is a transference of self-consciousness. Because of the survival mind of earth animal, we often fear the unknown, which is all backward, upside down seeing for one who must experience to evolve. Thus, the Hanged Man is the unconventional thinking man who realizes his own potential for mental and spiritual evolution, while seeing the Oneness in all things.
This epiphany, is shown as a halo around the headof the unconcerned face of the Hanged Man, shows this to be a  fearless time of contemplation. It is time to let go of thoughts and things that hurt you in order to gain this new wisdom.

This tree seems to be the old Norse tradition of Odin hanging from the Life Tree, Yggdrasil; A sacrifice of freedom, in order to gain the knowledge of the runes.

The Raven is a totem to Odin and represents initiation, prophecy, and the arcane.
The Raven in the Witches Tarot-Key 12- has a golden pentagram in his bill, while looking down at the Hanged man, with what seems a questioning look of "what are you doing here"? This shows that the Raven is a magical, clever and intelligent bird, who also loves shinning things and will often fill their nest with shiny bobbles.
The Traditional elemental colors of red for fire, blue for water, green for earth, and yellow for air, make up the coloration of the Hanged Man's jester like outfit.

THE THOTH DECK HANGED MAN- ATU (Key)12, is much more stylized but expressing the same concepts. The Hebrew letter Mem (bottom left) is attributed to this card representing the element Water, as the Spirit of Water in the economy of initiation; such as a baptism which is also a type of death; "Out with the old in with the new".  

This card represented the  supreme form of adeptship, during the Aeon of Osiris, which we excited in the early 20th century. The Hanged man represents the Drowned Man, as a soul/Psyche is drowned in the Astral Fluids to become a human. Thus, you see his foot loosely bound to the Crux Ansata using the Serpent, representing the destroyer/creator force, as the binding rope. The Crux Ansata or Ankh, represents the Rosy Cross, or even the letter Daleth that is shown in some cards as a tree branch, suggesting the Empress-Venus, Love; all of which are attributed to the Great Mother. The Ankh is a androgen symbol of Womb, phallus and mankind and also the Egyptian symbol for infinity.

This is the card of the Dying God myth which we know in all religions; the One that is sacrificed so the many can live expanded lives.  This "dying god" is The One Energy Transforming into the "many beings" or even the DNA of animal sacrificing its survival mind to the Higher Conscious state of Spirit. Thus, you can see the idea of  redemption through martyrdom is absolutely disqualified as a viable phenomena in spiritual development, since the Hanged Man is actually giving up less to gain more.

Some call this the card of redemption.  Redemption implies dept of which only falsehood can apply, since we don't owe our Creator anything but to be our original Soul-selves which is to be the Divine Self Image and not the "upside down" man-made man. The Hanged Man implies that we must sacrifice our concepts of divisionism, and separateness from the Divine Creative, Spirit or God to reclaim our inheritance. As inheritance isn't earned, or a product of sacrificing ones soul, but just requires one to Know Thy Name,i.e,"Above all things, Know thyself'!

The green of Venus dominates this card, but it is seen slowly growing darker in shade, denser as it were; as we descend the card and at the very bottom, the Serpentine force of new life begins to stir. Here our "most beloved", the personality or ego, is sacrificed to the Greater Self, so that we can become "as above so below", which is really no sacrifice at all and the world redemption is in the final analysis the wrong idea. As souls, we sacrifice lack of sensuality and discrimination, to become sensual and discriminatory creators. Now this is a "sacrifice" of lack for more and something I can absolutely get behind!  I would recommend getting the Book of Thoth by Master Theron (A,Crowley) to further study this powerful yet subtle card.

WHEN THE LONE MAN OR HANGED MAN CARD IS THROWN DURING DIVINATION:
It Implies:
  • Transformation, the breaking of old patterns.
  • Encountering a situation you may not like having to deal with but accepting the reversal.
  • Losing yourself to find yourself.
  • Hanging around, suspended in mid-air awaiting your next move.
  • Accepting the initiation of the death and resurrection process by losing yourself through a sense of ecstasy and surrender to Love.
  • Inability to free yourself from social pressure in order to listen to your inner self.
  • Self-sacrifice and submission of self to higher ideals.
  • The Law of Reversal: doing the opposite of what is ordinarily accepted socially, to achieve victory,brings victory.
  • Salvation being attained by passive surrender rather than by assertiveness and forceful resistance
  • Conquering material temptation.
 ill-definition of this card implies"
  • Materialism
  • Unwilling to make a sacrifice.
  • Selfishness
  • Concerned only with material matters thus displaying spiritual emptiness.
  • Failure to find one's true meaning in life.
