Tarotcard 12


 כ  -   Lamed ("Crankshaft ")   -    כ      

The 'Hanged' man hangs with the left foot at the light. The right leg is angled.

The board  is fastened on two tree trunks.

He is wearing gray trousers and a short dress.

His head hangs in a gap to the underground areas into which his treasures fall.

The gray trousers show that his subconsious forces are still untransformed.

He poors his forces into the earth.

The two tree trunks correspond to the Masonic columns Jachim and Boaz (of Hiram and Solomon) and to the blood-stained  doorposts of the Israelites .

The Sun Gate of the Incas is also a good comparison.

The student stands now at the entrance of the temple of initiation.

 "Oroborus" of 2 snakes

(Microcosmic Orbit)

In the background a dead tree without leaves.

The tulip of consciousness is open.
