Card #9: The Hanged Man
The Hanged Man sees the world differently and realizes his predicament. The card may indicate a period of indecision or contemplation, but also the potential to move forwards towards promising prospects. This card also indicates that sacrifice may be required in order to achieve your long-term goals. Like the Hanged Man, you may want to observe the situation from a different perspective before making a decision.
When seen in reverse, the Hanged Man indicates a time when you may feel like you’re making a sacrifice without seeing anything in return. The card also represents stagnation- the feeling that things are stuck when resolution or movement is needed.
