The Hanged Man #12
Changes of perspective. Leaving aside the rational to understand with other senses. Everything is connected.
'El Colgado' (The Hanged Man) is card #12 of the 'Glenda's Tarot' digital work by Glenda Leon.
Bolts of lightning mirror the branches of an upside down tree, and the lightning in turn is falling from the center of the earth, as if it did not come from the sky, but from somewhere else. Sometimes you have to change your perspective to be able to find the solution to an issue, or to be able to see a new path. We must change the direction of the flow of thoughts; leaving aside the rational to understand with other senses; to be able to see and hear clearly. Once you are in this new position, remember that everything is connected: the energy that made the tree grow is the same energy that caused the lightning.
Tarot - The practice of tarot emerged in Italy around the 15th century as a form of entertainment, which later spread to much of Europe. The Major Arcana are 22 individual numbered cards, each one represented by a character or symbol, such as the Fool, Death, the Wheel of Fortune, among others. Before the emergence of the printing press, tarot cards were illustrated by hand, being commissioned by artists as if they were a pictorial or sculptural work. This tradition has continued throughout history, and more recently, we have seen recreations of tarot designs made by artists such as Salvador Dalí, Leonora Carrington, Remedios Varo, among other artists who have been attracted to the deep mysticism around the subject and the visual impact of tarot cards.
