XII The Hanged Man



With the Hanged Man we can take our pick of saviors, because ultimately it doesn’t matter really if this is Christ, pinned to the tree against his will, or if this is Buddha or Odin, pinning themselves to the tree of their own volition and battling all the demons of existence or their own physical pain in order to make themselves ready for enlightenment. What matters is that the hero is willing to peg themselves to the tree, to pin themselves to the world current, to tie themselves to the Earth’s massive mast, to hear the songs of existential sirens as their ship sails past the rocks of ruin; to resist the temptation to succumb to painless cessation, to endure the pain of their pinions and return to earth bruised and battered but enlightened, having conquered death, ignorance and darkness through the physical sacrifice of their mortal coils.
