The Hanged Man, like the Death and the Tower, is one of the most misunderstood tarot cards.
When this card appears in a spread, people are disappointed.
For example, you expect certain insights into your love life and they materialize, and you feel as if all of your early dreams have been dashed.
The Hanged Man’s Answers in a ‘Yes or No’ Reading
When it comes to yes or no tarot card readings, the Hanged Man is neither yes nor no; rather, it is a maybe card.
Not every card will spell out a firm yes or no, but we should not ignore it!
In most cases, it indicates that you should take a breather and avoid from acting on impulse. This man’s presence, although not entirely bad, is an indication of spiritual progress.
Simply put, his advice is to avoid procrastinating and to go ahead if you are keen about anything.
When performing the one card yes or no tarot, keep in mind that the upright card indicates yes and the reversed card indicates no to your query.
It generally indicates resting for a while and abstaining from activities.
However, because he also signifies spiritual progress, the Hanged Man’s advice in some instances is to stop delaying and take a step forward.
The Hanged Man will only say “yes” if he emerges in a setting for which you know you’ve already done a lot of thought and shadow work.
If it appears to be complimenting you on your efforts, you know it’s time to let go and go on with confidence.
The Hanged Man is a huge arcana with a significant message (albeit it may not be the one you were searching for).
Several cards recommend that you make a change.
This is a little different in that it appears in a spread at a critical juncture.
Take advantage of the change and enjoy the break from your routine. You’re being given the option to take the situation in your hands and ‘change’ your response to yes; all you have to do is figure out what needs to change.
‘Yes or No’ Questions with the Hanged Man (Reversed)
There are some parallels to the upright posture when reversed, however there are a few important changes.
You probably already know it’s not the proper moment on some level.
You may be tempted to hurry, but this is something essential to you, and now is not the time to rush.
Again, you will not receive a yes or a no.
Instead, it’s a sign from the universe that it’s time to slow down and think things out.
If you are dealing with opposition, hesitation, or delays from a third party, these may appear to be hurdles at the time, but they are actually providing you with an opportunity to make the best choices for the desired conclusion.
The Hanged Man, like other Tarot cards, works best in conjunction with other cards in a spread. It can only tell you so much on its own.
When we flip The Hanged Man around, we notice him facing the proper way up.
It makes so much more sense to see him in this light and actually comprehends how he now resembles being locked in one place and rooted to the spot.
