Hello, dear Moonbeams! It’s good to have you here for more Tarot & Tea. Our card this week is card 12 of the Major Arcana, The Hanged Man. His situation is not fatal, as he is suspended by his foot rather than his neck. The figure depicted is glowing with a saintly serenity, a representation of surrender and self-sacrifice. He has given up that which
no longer serves him in order to become truly present for his new set of priorities to blossom. The Hanged Man sends a message about giving over power to the Divine… “Let go and let God,” as they say. In a state of suspended animation, there’s an obvious element of taking the time to reflect. His upside-down position tells us that he is seeing things from a drastically new perspective. In accepting what is, The Hanged Man finds release and peace. In this instance, it is by surrender that we find true success.
Upon consideration, what blend could be better paired with The Hanged Man than our Nic Relief tea? Changing priorities, releasing old ways of being, and becoming more deeply present in the moment are all relevant points to quit smoking. Lobelia, Licorice, Skullcap, Passionflower, and Peppermint are a fantastic formula to assist in releasing nicotine addiction. Lobelia, with its nicotine-like constituents, is directly helpful in calming cravings while sweet Licorice lends us the strength to let go. Relaxing nervines Skullcap and Passionflower support our ability to surrender to the changes we have chosen to make and Peppermint clears the way for a fresh, new point of view.
Our featured deck this week is the often overlooked Connolly Tarot. This is a delightful deck with bright, positive imagery. Vivid primary and neon colors make these cards really pop! The general tone of this deck is gentle and kind. We see the two darkest cards of the Major Arcana transformed: Death becomes Transition and The Devil is restyled as Materialism. If you are looking for a basic Tarot deck with brilliant colors and pleasant vibes, The Connolly Tarot is definitely worth checking out.
