Self-Care with The Hanged Man

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Hanged Man.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-12-01

If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean to let go.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to identify what you need to let go of at this time and release it.

It could be letting go of control of something. Maybe it’s the need to accept what is right now. It might be the need to surrender to the experience of what you’re going through. Only you know what you’re struggling with.
