Hanging Men and Bats ๐Ÿฆ‡

๐Ÿฆ‡ It all started with an unusual event in which someone with a rather curious appetite decided to try a soup๐Ÿœ, having a bat as the main ingredient. Fast forward to a few months later, and humanity is grinding to a halt forced to reassess its ways of living, thinking, and being.

After bringing China to a stand-still โœ‹, the epicenter of the coronavirus crises has moved to northern Italy, home of the 15th-century Visconti-Sforza Tarot Deck ๐Ÿƒ, a masterpiece among the first tarot decks ever encountered.

By that time, a well-known punishment ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป for disloyalty would be theย pitturaย infamante,ย a public display of the offender tall hanged upside-down by one ankle. This shameful ๐Ÿคญ punishment was supposed to force convicts to rethink their selfish ways under a new perspective (well, literally).

The Hanged Man 12th Major Arcana Tarot Card as Depicted in the Visconti-Sforza 15th Century Tarot Deck found in Milan, Italy.The Hanged Man (see picture), twelfth Major Arcana card in the most traditional tarot decks, depicts this singular form of punishment to convey a vital message โ˜๐Ÿพ. One of surrender to a halt and reassessment of old ways of being that no longer serves ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ.ย 

There's no scape. Pushing forward, believing that more action will drive you to where you want to go, won't work here. Stop ๐Ÿ›‘. You must slow down to reconnect to your reason. You'll be free once you gain the enlightenment required to embrace your fate. Trust this, and you'll find your path ๐Ÿ›ฃ again into the grand scheme of things. But for now, you need to Stop.

Coincidence or not, Mother Earth ๐ŸŒŽ passed Her urgent message through an animal famous for hanging upside down ๐Ÿฆ‡. So let's take this opportunity to pause and meditate on new ways to evolve and live harmoniously with Her. Global warming is already a reality. And humanity doesn't need to be hanging upside down again to realize that we can't sustain our frantic living โญ.
