The Hanged Man Tarot Card
The basic symbols of this card are a man hanging by one foot from a Tau cross. His free leg always crossed to form a ‘4’ and his face always peaceful. His hands may be either tied or dangling. At times, some coins may be falling from his hands or pockets. This is a card about trial or meditation, selflessness, and sacrifice. This card symbolizes suspension, change, reversal, sacrifice, readjustment, improvement, and rebirth; and in reverse stands for unwillingness to make an effort, false prophecy, and useless sacrifice.

To find his spiritual self, the Fool settles beneath a tree. Without food and is barely moving, nine days pass by. On the ninth day, he climbs the tree without any conscious thought and dangles upside down from a branch. He does not care for anything. Coins fall from his pocket, but for him these are pieces of metal. His whole perspective has changed. Though in a dreamlike state, things are crystal clear. He knows this will not last, as he soon must right himself and act on what he has learned.

For the Querent, the card means it is time to stop resistance and gain illumination. It is the time for reflection before moving on.
