I ended up drawing The Hanged Man instead of The Hermit (which is the card that comes after Strength)…
I always get these two cards mixed up in order… To me, the three cards: Fool, Hanged man (or woman :) ) and Hermit – all represent ages of the soul, which is probably why I end up trying to put the hanged man in the middle.
The Hanged Man (or Woman)
The Hanged (wo)Man – represents sacrifice for a noble cause and also spiritual awareness.. Hanging upside down does give you an opportunity to see things from a different perspective… I drew her as a joker (I believe they are pretty good at standing on their heads…), and with the scenic background I wanted the card to say that whatever you gave up to hang upside down; it was definitely worth it.
I know I said I’d go into more detail about the process of drawing each card – I hope to do that in my next post. Off to draw the Hermit – and hope you’re all well :)
