Tarot & Quotes: The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man, Pearls of Wisdom Tarot
© 2011 Roxi Sim
"It is easy to create new things, change places or do something different. To keep that sense of newness that creates enthusiasm is more difficult. The secret of newness in life is not to do new things constantly, but to see everything you do with new eyes, new insights and a new perspective." - thoughtfortoday.org.uk

When I recently came across the Pearls of Wisdom Tarot by artist Roxi Sim, I was enchanted by its vibrant artwork and the abundant symbolism in the cards. The Hanged Man embodies spiritual consciousness, and I can feel it in this image, where brown leaves are falling from the tree suggesting the shedding of old patterns and outdated ideas in order to gain a new perspective; surrender and sacrifice for a higher gain.

The snake watching down from the top of the tree suggests transformation and rebirth, whereas the owl in the bottom right corner symbolises wisdom - wisdom gained through transformation. I could go on describing all the many magical details of this image, but instead I would like you to discover this rather beautiful deck for yourself by visiting Roxi's website, and even purchase it here.

Furthermore, a stunning limited edition Pearls of Wisdom Tarot Kit will be available in Autumn 2012. To find out more and to be notified in advance of its publication date, please visit Pearls of Wisdom Healing Experience.
