When the Hermit meets the Hanged man
When the hermit meets the hanged man, he tries to understand what his purpose is. As he reflects he begins to understand that the hanged man contemplates the universe in a different way, he looks beyond the celestial vault ( a point to the heavens above the celestial sphere) and views the universe as a projection of a sphere in the form of a circle. From an outsiders (such as the hermit) point of view it will appear below him, but we must put our ideas of what high and low are to understand this. The sphere as a universe is whole and when reflected becomes a circle. Within the circle are the movement of the stars, their rhythmic movement makes it possible to understand the secrets to the universe and this is what we know as the zodiac, which constantly changes and has an influence on the cosmos.
The hanged man is conscious of the secrets of the zodiac circle, through acceptance comes knowledge therefore the truth.
The hermit realises this and takes time to stand still and contemplate on the effect astrology has on finding the truth and has gained another piece of the puzzle to aid him on his quest.
