Yin & Yang, Hermit & Hanged Man

Have you ever stopped to notice how the Hermit and the Hanged Man are yin and yang energy characters?

Both need to spend some alone time in order to prepare themselves for their next step, but one is going within and considering all their options and reflecting on what they need to know and that one is the Hanged Man.

The Hermit, on the other hand, has spent a period of time alone, studying, practicing, acquiring wisdom, and how they come out to share their light with others.

We all need some time alone, some quiet time, meditation, reflection. We need to give some thought as to what's next, what's important, and what is the best way to do it. Then once we acquire that knowledge we need to do something with it. If we acquire knowledge and ability but we do not share it or use it, then it is simply a pointless exercise.

The results of our interactions with others cause us to pause and reflect and then go out and begin again.

Which phase are  you in right now? Hermit or Hanged Man?
