The Hanged Man card lives in the 6th house and is ruled by Virgo and the planet Mercury. The energy of Hanged Man connects with you through the 3rd Chakra.

I'm using the Marseille Tarot deck because it's the first Tarot that we know about, and it was brought to this planet by Nicolas Flamel in the 14th century. It's a tool of personal development used in the secret school of alchemy. If you have any prior experience with Tarot, I invite you to open your mind to a new way of interpreting the cards. Hopefully, this information will add up to your current knowledge.

As we saw in Strength card 11, which is also ruled by the zodiac sign Virgo, the Hanged Man is very connected with the energy of sacred work.

Strength shows you that on the path to self-realization, you need to be resilient and have a lot of inner power. The Hanged Man complements the characteristics of the Great Work, showing that besides acting with Strength, you need to reflect and sometimes change course.

Hanged Man: allow yourself to change

The Hanged Man understands that progress, to accomplish his life mission, he needs to make sacrifices.

On the path to self-realization, you need to learn from past mistakes, and here it is like a step back to recalculate your route forward.

He knows that the time he spends in this position will not be wasted, and he does it as part of his evolutionary process.

I know that I know nothing.


But notice that in the card, the Hanged Man is not suffering. He makes the sacrifice, but without suffering. He has the humility to always seek to improve or reinvent himself if necessary.

The Hanged Man card reflects a need to suspend specific action. Consequently, it indicates a time of indecision. Certain activities or decisions that need to be implemented will be put off, even if there is an urgency to act at this particular moment.

In fact, he knows that it is best to delay some actions to ensure that you have more time to reflect on making critical decisions.

This time is ideal for you to stop living on ready-made certainties, traditions, and conservatism and let your essence come out.

Those who walk the spiritual path and seek to live their essence see the world differently. Others do not understand the need for sacrifice, and others do not reflect on the world and their role in it.

However, this is a natural course of action for you who follow the path of self-realization.

Keywords: sacrifice, perspective, reflection, humility, opinion, change.

Let yourself change your mind, stop, and learn from past mistakes. Use the energy of the Hanged Man to seek new ways to do your sacred work and…

Let the magic happen!
