The Hanged Man

At learning the lessons of Justice, the Fool learns compassion and sympathy for his fellow travelers. He begins to realize that his souls is not entirely unique, but a single unit of an intricate web of human cultures, and beyond that a great interconnected chain of life. He hangs himself from this tree of life for nine days, studying the world from a new perspective. He surrenders all his fear of death and resigns his fate to the physics of nature that birthed him. He finally feels a sense of inner peace as if he finally knows his place in the universe.
