Happy New Year!

Economic privation, human stalemate in Gaza, seasons changing in the wrong order for the birds. It all ties in when you let it... so thanks to this unknown, unfortunate ski-lift dude for providing the globe with a significator.

The BBC article continues: "Photos show the man naked from his waist to his knees, swinging from one leg"

Says Waite:
"12. The Hanged Man.
The figure of a man is suspended head-downwards from a gibbet, to which he is attached by a rope about one of his ankles.

...It has been called falsely a card of martyrdom, a card a of prudence, a card of the Great Work, a card of duty; but we may exhaust all published interpretations and find only vanity. I will say very simply on my own part that it expresses the relation, in one of its aspects, between the Divine and the Universe.

He who can understand that the story of his higher nature is imbedded in this symbolism will receive intimations concerning a great awakening that is possible, and will know that after the sacred Mystery of Death there is a glorious Mystery of Resurrection."

Pink and 42 for luck, everyone.
