A man hangs upside down from a tree, tied by one leg. His hands are crossed behind his back and a glowing yellow bright light surrounds his head, indicating enlightenment. He looks unbothered and has a straight face. He was not forced to be there, but he is clearly allowing himself to be in this position for a reason. When the Hanged Man comes out in a reading, it generally means to let go and allow things to unfold naturally. The Hanged Man also represents a sacrifice done or needed for a transformation to occur.
