The Hanged Man is at his wit’s end, where he can’t think his way out of his quagmire. This card reveals stuck situations that are rooted in unviable beliefs, attitudes or ways of living/seeing. Sometimes the timing is out of the seeker’s control, and the waiting seems endless.
Other times, the wise course is to let go, appeal to a higher power, and await the release from being “upside down” that’s sure to come. The inverted Hanged Man is like a caterpillar awaiting the metamorphoses that'll transform him into a butterfly. Life feels hard, like a struggle. The message is to "hang in there," the one sure thing is change, and a release from what you're dealing with.
