The Hanged Man Tarot Meaning (Major Arcana Card)
The Hanged Man: This card shows a man who has been hanged upside-down, who probably does not seem to mind that he's there.

The Hanged Man General Meaning
In order to make changes in your situation you need to step back and try a different approach. Look again and see if you can find a more imaginative way of doing things. You may find that the key to unlocking your predicament is to work out what it is you need to give up or what sacrifices you could make at this time. The Hanged Man can often turn up when we are trying and trying hard to achieve something which just isn't coming our way. At these times he comes and taps us on the shoulder, saying: "You're going about this the wrong way. Your trying is the problem, so give it up and take a different approach!"
