Just like Prometheus's story is often seen as tragic, the Hanged Man in tarot at first may seem a bit foreboding. In reality, neither are true. The Prometheus The Hanged Man, Mythology Tarot Enamel Pin might suggest otherwise with the open wound showing at his liver and Zeus's offending eagle standing behind him. But look to his calm face; Prometheus's name means "forethought," so he knew of the eternal torture that would befall him upon defying Zeus and giving fire to humanity. And instead of the Hanged Man suggesting death, he reminds us to surrender and see from a new perspective. What are you being called to see differently?
