The Hanged Man Tarot Card DESCRIPTION: illustration, colors, and symbolism.

  • The Hanged Man shows a man suspended upside down by his foot. He hangs from a T-shaped cross made of a living wood tree. This is no ordinary sapling, though. The world tree is said to carry the weight of the heavens while also being rooted in the Underworld below. He is hanging upside-down, viewing the world from a completely different perspective. His facial expression is calm and serene, suggesting that he is in this hanging position by his own choice. With one leg crossed behind the other, he doesn’t appear to be afraid or upset. He is holding his hands behind his back in a way that forms an inverted triangle. The man is wearing red pants representing human passion physical strength and willpower, and a blue vest for calm emotions and knowledge. The glowing halo around his head symbolizes new insight, awareness, and enlightenment.  His relaxed expression gives the impression that he has accepted his fate. The same is true of his shirt, which is dyed the color of the serene ocean. The Hanged Man can change his situation, but for one reason or another, has decided to sit this one out. The Hanged Man is the card of ultimate surrender, of being suspended in time, and of martyrdom and sacrifice to the greater good.


  • Card number XII  is called The Hanged Man. The numerology number 12 is creative. The number 12 represents creativity, controlled by the primordial forces that make up all things. It’s especially creative in expressing its individuality, its points of view — any concepts it desires to convey with full understanding. The number 1 is the number of energetic leaders. The number 2 is like yin energy, passive and even submissive. Number 12 can be reduced to 3 by adding 1+2. Numerology number 3 is associated with creative expression.
  • Wikipedia: The Hanged Man is a depiction of the Norse god Odin, who suspended himself from a tree in order to gain knowledge. There is also a Christian interpretation that portrays Judas Iscariot, and includes the bags of silver in his hands.

Acceptance and letting go are the keys to the situation if you want to move forward. The hanged man realizes that his position is a sacrifice that he needs to make to move forward.  This time he spends here will not be wasted.  He does this as part of his progression forward.

 The Hanged Man card – REVERSED?

  • “Reversed tarot card” is a card that appears to be upside down from your angle of vision.

If you are hesitant to bring an end to a romantic relationship or friendship, there is no need to rush. You do need to do some soul-searching.  If you are single, the card can indicate that you need to release yourself from situations, ideas, or people that do not make you happy.

It may also signify that you need to release any rigid preconceptions about your ideal partner to open yourself up to the options around you.  Generally, the card tells you to come to a place of acceptance.
