The Hanging Man generally shows that you are at a crossroads - one with only two options i.e. in or out, up or down, yes or no. You may find yourself very much wanting to do "something" but having no idea what it is or how to do it. If that happens, that's a clear sign that you should stop, relax, and look at ways that you might need to let go of attempts to control life/situations/people/things.
It's possible that there is an outdated attitude or wish that you need to let go of. Any sacrifice that you make will open up your life to something even more positive than what you "let go of." All in all this should be a thoughtful, reflective time, particularly if you are willing to look at if or how you might best serve your own interests by being willing to change.
Career & Employment
Nothing much may seem to be happening, and you may well be sick of it. This is a great time to figure out if there is anything that you personally can do about it, if this is the case, and if there is not an action that you can take, then try not to take the slowness of the wheels of change personally. Things will change. It just may not happen on your timetable. Relax, or else look for different work.
Love & Relationships
Again, the theme can be one of letting go. "Letting go" of an unattainable lover, for example, will bring about the possibility that someone that you can be with will "be there" for you. But that is only one example. You may need to "let go" of a vision of a particular kind of relationship as being "the only way that you can be happy." If you're in a long-term relationship, it too may well be at a crossroads. If you think the relationship is fabulous, be sure and find out "where your partner is" with the state of affairs.
Finances & Income
If things are tight, this is an important time to "open up the flow" of prosperity by giving away some of what you have, even if all you have is a piece of bread. If that's the case, know that there is someone nearby who would probably give their right arm to share that piece of bread with you. Find them, and share it. Something as simple as this may start the wheels turning to bring your "prosperity" into better times.
Mental & Physical Health
You may change your mind radically about something that you think is wrong with you physically. This is not a siren song to just ignore everything your doctor has told you, but give it some deep thought, do some research. It's possible that something you thought you understood could best be treated in another way. Your health improves, but it's a process.
It's crucial now to let go of any negative, self-limiting beliefs. Remember the idea of the "self-fulfilling prophesy" and be very careful about what you allow yourself to say or think about our life. Make sure the "prophecies" you are making about your life bear some resemblance to the life you really wish to see.
