Hanged Man

An explanation of the Hanged Man according to the philosophy of the Tarot of the Morning Star

Consciousness is given up to sleep and our nocturnal eidolon in the image of a bat is released to hunt through our dreams.

The self sacrifice of the Hanged Man is the projecting of the reasoning mind into the phantasmagoric realm of conscious dreaming which opens during astral projection or controlled sleep.

Review of Tarot of the Morning Star taken from Tarot Web Ring

The Tarot of the Morning Star is a small limited edition tarot of only 75 copies, created by Roger Williamson and published in the USA in 2007. His artwork is printed in a soft focus style with few hard edges, giving it an ethereality. Williamson seems primarily inspired by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, thus many of the card designs use Egyptian forms. The ‘Morning Star’ of this tarot appears to be Lucifer, the Biblical Angel of Light, and many of the images incorporate the interweaving of light. His Fool is a portrait of Lucifer. I am not sure if Williamson would agree, but I found some of his imagery somewhat redolent of the coloured imagery William Blake printed in the margins of his poetry. He comes up with some wonderful new envisagings of the familiar arcana. One is his Hanged Man which delightfully metamorphoses into a bat. The deck comes in a solid red box with a paperback book in which he outlines how his ideas emerged out of his study and experience of the Western Magical traditions.
