As with the Death card, the Hanged Man is much less ominous than he first appears. Although suspended over an abyss, our man is serene and seems almost to be enjoying his novel view of the world, perhaps because he knows it will give fresh insights when he is back on his feet again. Like the Fool, he cares little for dignity or even danger, and trusts in a higher wisdom to show him the way.
Beware of pointless time-wasting, selfishness, and half-hearted sacrifice that achieves nothing. You need to find new ways of dealing with events. The card may also warn of accidents, danger, and loss. Remember that whatever fails to break you only makes you stronger.
