If you continue looking at the traditional tarot card of The Hanged Man you are going to find his hands are behind his back. This is symbolizing that his hands are not being used, as hands rule touch, action and thought. We use our hands to grasp at situations that arise both externally and internally.

The hanged man’s legs are crossed forming a number four. The number four is what rules one’s sense of ego and “I AM.” The hanged mans bent knee is symbolizing his flexibility and ability when it comes to bending to the will of a consciousness that is higher. In some of the older tarot card decks the Hanged Man was shown letting go of money bags. This was symbolizes the renunciation of some sort of reward that was either spiritual or financial, from some sort of action.

The Hanged Man card has Neptune as its planet and is fascinating to many individuals. The Hanged Man is reflecting the story of Odin who was known for offering himself as a sacrifice in order to get knowledge. Odin hung from the world tree and was hurt by a spear; he was given nothing to eat and hung there for nine days. On the last day of his hanging, he saw runes on the ground that had fallen from the tree. He understood the meaning of the runes, came down and scooped them all up for his own self.
You may be glad to know that the Hanged Man is not a card about death; it is a card about suspension. This is a time of selflessness, meditation, sacrifice and prophecy. The Querent stops resisting and makes himself or herself vulnerable. The Querent also sacrificed his or her position, in doing this they gain illumination. The answers that once eluded them become clear and understanding.
