Hanged man-Neg

"The hanged man" Tarot card from the Rider-Waite tarot deck, 1909

The Second heaven is described in 2 Enoch as having a place of "great darkness" (18:3) for angelic prisoners who are hanging and awaiting a great and boundless judgment (7:1). This may be cross referenced with 1 Enoch in which Shemyaza, leader of the two hundred rebel Watchers, had been suspended upside down for his crimes against humanity.[1] Even the angels who guard the prisoners, are described as 'gloomy in appearance, more than the darkness of the earth'.
