12. The Hanged Man, the Opossum

It is actually a misconception that adult possums can hang by their tails for an extended period of time. Their tails are prehensile, and they live in the trees, but their tail could simply not support the full weight of an adult. However, the hanging possum is an American symbol etched into our minds. Misconceptions are not limited to America’s only marsupial though. We go through life seeming to collect little bits of wisdom that, once they are closely observed, are not what they seem. Turn some of your ideas upside down- look for truth in unexpected places and lies in places you may blindly trust. Truth and wisdom will come to you if you are willing to push yourself out of the comfort zone and see something from a different angle.
