I, welcome back. I’m so excited to have Marybeth Murphy, our spiritual coach, here teaching us more about the Major Arcana cards. Okay, so now we’re going to talk about the Hanged Man. I know, it’s sounds horrible doesn’t it, but he’s not, he’s cool, he’s just hanging around, right, look at him, he’s upside down, he’s just hanging and he’s hanging and the reason he’s hanging is because he doesn’t have to worry about too much. We always wonder if something happens wrong to us we’re very so consumed about getting the other person back or something like that, which, we are human, that’s what happens. But the Hanged Man, it’s basically saying, and I’m going to read to you a little bit from the book, it says “Trust that all will get what they deserve. Sacrifices may be necessary and not all battles will be won. Some are not worth fighting and are better left off for gone. Self control may be necessary”. So, sometimes we always wonder why things happen in life, but remember when one door closes another one opens. You don’t have to worry about getting back at somebody or making sure everything is fair and equal.
The universe has a way of taking care of that and that’s what The Hanged Man is around to remind us of. The next one is Temperance, and Temperance means just that, is that everything in balance. Everything in equal, equilibrium. Everything in moderation, you know they always say with diets the best thing to do is have whatever you want but just eat in moderation, don’t binge on the chocolate and all that other stuff, but that’s pretty much what its saying. Have what you want in life but temper it, temper it with balance. I’ll read to you a little bit from the book, it says “Moderation in all things. Having achieved many material and spiritual goals, knows a time of equilibrium. Appreciation of simple pleasures. Any sense of balance”. Okay and the final card right now is Death. Now everyone gets so upset with the Death card, and that’s the thing about Tarot, is that it’s basically misunderstood on a lot of levels, it’s like dark and of the Occult and all this horrible stuff and it’s not.
Basically these cards are so old and they’ve been handed down for thousands of years, so and you can see in these particular cards very Renaissancey. So Death is made to look at something, and she is, she’s a woman who is at her deaths door and she’s pale and ghostly like. Basically what’s telling you is that, do you have any regrets. If you were to die tomorrow, are you going to be happy with your life, are you going to look back and regret thing that you did or did not do. So that’s what Death is telling you, it’s making you look inside, are you happy, are you happy where your life is, fix it, now is the time to do it. It’s actually a card of encouragement and pushing you to move forward in your life. Great, so are we going to learn some more about the Major Arcana cards, next? More Major Arcana are coming up.
