When the hanged man comes out correctly, the tarot is suggesting that you should pause for a moment before starting again, or the universe will do so at any moment without prior notice. It is time to release old habits, thoughts and behaviors that no longer serve you.

What brought you here will no longer take you there: It is time to see the world with a new perspective and prepare to take advantage of the new opportunities that life offers you, that will be hidden from you if you don't take the necessary breath.

If you're in tune with your intuition, you'll start to get a feeling when it's time to slow down and put things on hold, before things get out of hand. If you are out of alignment and choose not to look for the signs that it is time to stop, the universe is likely to do it for you and slow things down by putting obstacles in your way; poor health and failures.

When you feel that the pause has arrived you must be attentive and paying attention to the universe will increase the volume of its signals until you finally realize it.

When this figure appears in a Tarot reading, your projects and activities can stop unexpectedly and abruptly. Don't keep moving forward, expect more and more strength to take you where you want to go. Instead, give up the opportunity to pause and see this as your chance to reassess where you are on your journey.

Announce the arrival of the new, to which you will be totally blind if you don't stop to breathe and don't take the time when it arrives. It invites you to welcome the breaks and welcome it with open arms, even if it is different from what you expected.

Take your time, get out of the routine a bit so you can see things with new perspectives. It may be time to put important projects on hold while this process is going on and you may feel nervous, but it will be totally worth it.

Stopping is the universe's way of helping you see with new vision and prepare yourself for the next level. If you push or resist you will only find more obstacles in your way. But if you give up, opportunities flow easily and effortlessly for you.

In other words, you are being called to change your perspective and change your energy. It may help to separate yourself from your everyday life, whether it's taking a walk in nature, retiring, or moving to a new country. Change up your routine so that you can start to feel the shift in energy and flow more freely again.

When the hanged man comes out like this, the tarot alerts you to pay attention to the pause, which is probably already happening but you resist strongly and instead are filling your days with tasks that it keeps you busy and distracts you from what really needs your attention.

Your spirit and body tell you to slow down, but your mind keeps going. Stop and slow down, before it's too late. The Universe will only get louder if you choose to ignore it, and you may end up crashed and burned as a result.

It is possible that all your affairs have already been put on hold, and that this card indicates that you feel blocked or stuck , because circumstances or people have left you on hold. Stop resisting, it's time to start flowing with life even if it's not how you imagined.

If your life has already been on hold for a period of time, being reversed can be a positive sign that you can now move forward with a new perspective and a renewed sense of energy. The timing of events may begin to align more easily and smoothly, and it's as if everything has locked into place and is ready to go.

There is a chance that there is already a breakthrough or raw realization about how you should do things differently and you are ready to change and move forward with a new look.

It may be that what is waiting is a relationship and to some extent you are content to wait and realize that it is a relationship that will evolve over time, however You are also not willing to wait forever so that the time has come to make a decision.

The Hanged Man reversed can indicate that you are stuck in making a decision or taking an action. You're waiting until you feel 100% ready to make a call or take the next step, but you'll probably never feel 100% ready. So, make the leap, make that decision, and do it before you're forced to act because the universe just can't wait for you to feel 100% ready.
