When upright, the Hanged One suggests that the user was moving forward and has lately found themselves struggling to keep going. This position arises to remind us that occasionally the best way to progress is to stop moving entirely and surrender to the whims of the universe. Don’t try to push past the blocks; you’ll only succeed doing more harm than good. The universe is telling you to slow down, to pause for a moment and look at things from a different angle. Use this as an opportunity to check in with yourself. You may realize you’ve gone about things in the wrong way. Sometimes being ‘stuck’ doesn’t mean stagnation. There is more than one way to move forward, so take the time to see things in a new light. It may surprise you what comes of it.
