12 New Perspectives (Hanged Man)

New Perspective (the Hanged Man in traditional decks) represents the transformation from surrender to initiation. He willingly suspends himself from the tree, patiently waiting for a new way to experience the world. New Perspective pauses as he questions all he has known. He has no fear, knowing he can get down at any point. He surrenders old beliefs in order to create the new.

In the Tarot of Empowerment, New Perspective is looking at the world in a fresh way in order to achieve divine enlightenment. Once he has accomplished his goal, he will be initiated to a higher level of wisdom and understanding. He understands that through his own enlightenment he can help to create a better world.
