Is Hanged Man Intuitive?
"Is Hanged Man intuitive?" Another great question submitted through my site's search engine. And it's my pleasure to offer up an answer.
Fun fact about the cards depicted below: I found both at the bottom of each deck of cards. No shuffling required. I kid you not. Still delightfully shaken by that spectacular synchronicity.
The "regular" interpretation of The Hanged Man begins (and sometimes ends) with a change of perspective, leaving it at that. And that unqualified interpretation limits the potential of the card. (Raising my hand in admission of guilt through limiting The Hanged Man's potential at times.)
Study the two interpretations of this major arcana key as depicted through the lens of the Smith-Waite Centennial and The Light Seer's Tarot. Aside from the position of the figure in each, they share a common feature. Do you see it?
Visually speaking, we could interpret the yellow light behind each of their heads as a halo of sorts. There's more happening than mere thinking, it seems. And typically we assign the solar plexus chakra with yellow. What qualities align with that chakra? My main interpretation: Personal power, a.k.a. the seat of our intuition, a.k.a. our intuitive dashboard.
Qualifying the perspective interpretation
The changed perspective of The Hanged Man, in both cards displayed, has little bearing on their upside down-ness. (Although hanging upside down certainly encourages looking at things differently.) Delving deeper, we might interpret the changed perspective as moving us out of our brain and ego and into our heart and intuition.
The Light Seer's Tarot's depiction conveys this more readily. While what the figure reaches for could be a body of water, more likely it's a cosmic soup; a universal whirlpool of light-coded wisdom. Even so, that yellow glow in both instances offers up a major clue about the "headspace" of each figure.
Another nugget: When I full-body channel the ascended masters, angels, etc., observers tell me they see a yellow glow around me. And I'm told when Esther Hicks channels Abraham, observers see a yellow glow around her.
So, is Hanged Man intuitive? From my perspective: Most definitely.
