This card is from the Morgan-Greer Tarot, published 1979.

The cards of the past two days, The Sun and the Nine of Cups, encouraged you to drive ahead ambitiously toward your goals and to indulge yourself in the pleasures of life. But now you encounter the Hanged Man. This card tells you to put on the brakes. It’s important for you to take stock of your situation and figure out if you’re really going in the right direction. The only way to do that is to stop what you’re doing and suspend your current plans, at least temporarily. Often constant activity is a distraction which helps us avoid looking at things that make us uncomfortable. So take a brief hiatus and spend time today in serious consideration of where you are and where you want to be in the future. Challenge yourself to think critically about your hopes and dreams and to see through the veil of illusion to the truth of the matter. You may find that you’ll have to sacrifice something in order to move on to the next stage of your progress. If so, it will be worth it.
