The Hanged Man card is associated with Pluto and is calling for transformation. It represents feeling trapped by your circumstances; you are tied up by your fear of change. When this card shows up, you are being put on notice that you will have to give up something at this time. Check to see what it is and see if you can surrender gracefully. If you don’t it may be a long, slow, tortuous process. Often it is only through the process of enough suffering that we allow ourselves to make other choices. Sometimes you have to give up something — your old identity, your old belief system, your fears — to see what will work for you. When the Hanged Man is reversed, you are not letting something go. You are willing to be in terrible suffering to attempt to hang on to it. Only you can decide how much misery you are willing to put up with before you decide to change.
