Hanged Man


The Hanged Man is the tarot card that gives us resilience. We live our lives with certain expectations, which can lead to occasional disappointments. This card tells us to surrender to the Universe, suspend all action, and calm our minds first, so that we can think clearly. It is an indication that the answers will come when the time is right, and all we can do is wait patiently. When we are stuck in a situation we can’t get out of, no amount of struggle will help us. When we want something madly, that is the time we should rein ourselves in and introspect. We need to take a deep breath, step back, and allow ourselves to give up control. Withholding action for a while will give us the space to see the roadblocks along the path, and sidestep them in time. This often gives us a better perspective on things, and allows us to break free of old binding habits on our path to progress. In a reading, this card urges us to stop complicating matters for ourselves, and sacrifice what is no longer of use to us. It represents a unique paradox – of gaining control by letting go, and of finding the path forward by stopping in our tracks for a moment.

Possibly a romantically disquieting day, you may begin to suspect that your love is not being returned, at least not in kind. Or perhaps you can’t bring yourself to return the affections of an ardent admirer. This might feel even worse. The head and heart don’t always speak the same language or have the same opinions. Be strong and as kind as you can.



As per what is shown in the death tarot card, it is represented by a living skeleton as that is the only thing left when people die. It is seen riding an attractive white horse and death is shown holding a black flag with a white pattern inside. As we all know that death is invincible and indestructible, it is shown wearing an armor. The white horse that he is sitting on denotes purity and beneath him, there are various sections and classes of people who are lying down in the dirt. The card, especially, shows a king and a pauper lying on the dirt signifying that death does not consider any differences like caste, race, gender, etc in the process.

There’s a sense of security in what is old, and with something new coming into your life it’s natural to be a bit afraid. Give this new situation a chance and give yourself time to get comfortable with the new conditions. It could be as simple as getting your hair cut or changing your glasses frames, but it could be much bigger than that.
