Sacrifice for the Greater Good. Release and Let go. Ultimate Surrender. Breaking old Patterns. Change your Perspective.
The Hanged Man represents a time of waiting or of a need to wait, to be patient. This can be something that you have chosen or where the situation itself requires it, with life asking you to be patient. On the other hand, it might indicate that you don’t feel ready to take the next step and would rather wait until you have more information or resources. It is important not to push through, even if you feel the resistance is coming from you and that you are procrastinating. For some reason, your inner voice will be telling you to wait. If the holdup is not coming from within and you are ready to move but nothing is happening, this could be frustrating. This does indicate delays but not permanent delays, suggesting that with patience and in its own time things will start moving again. Until then, make the most of the chance to gain more information, insight or just surrender and stay in the moment.
Reversed or with challenging cards around the Hermit, this could have two different implications. Taken in a negative context this could indicate that you have become stuck in a habit, relationship, job or other situation. On the other hand, a reversed card can have the opposite meaning to its direct position, so could indicate movement after being stuck.
