12 The Hanged Man – Book of Thoth

The Hanged Man Tarot divinatory meanings

Suspension and loss. Generally the client is either doing too little to achieve anything or she is waiting forlornly for someone to do something for her. Alternatively, actions are altruistic – for the benefit of others – a noble gesture, but when life is in self-sacrifice, leaving disappointment. The solution is to act from within for one’s own benefit rather than for others. After all, if you are not committing a crime (and that is the last thing on the mind of someone in this state), then it is down to the approval of others. When this card is prominent, the client may feel that there is no point to anything as whatever happens there will be a loss.
