The Hanged Woman Tarot Card Meaning

Written and illustrated by Grace Duong

The traditional Rider Waite depiction of the Hanged Woman card is usually referred to as the Hanged Man. This card features a man who is hung upside down by one ankle. This is referred to as a pittura infamante, a form of punishment that was common for traitors, thieves, and frauds in Renaissance Italy, where shame was used as social punishment. The hanged man is hung upside down on a tree T-Cross, representing Christ. The figure has a halo around his head, indicating a change of perspective and enlightenment. His right foot is tied to the tree, but left foot is free and tucked behind his leg. He is wearing red pants, representing passion, and a blue vest for wisdom. He is at acceptance with his position, his facial expression calm and at peace.

In the Mystic Monday’s Tarot deck, the Hanged Woman card is depicted as a feminine figure upside down, held by aerial ropes, like a circus performer. Her hands are behind her head, legs intertwined with the rope, feet touching. She seems to be effortlessly hanging in the air, waiting for her next move. The background has arches of repeating shapes in dark blue. The figure is changed to female as opposed to male to signify receptivity, surrender, and flow.

The Hanged Woman Numerology

Twelve symbolizes spiritual growth, evolution, and cosmic order. When you pull a card associated with twelve, it means that things are lining up, so long as you have the drive to complete the tasks at hand. Twelve is a powerful number and can represent succession. There are twelve months in a year, twelve astrological signs, twelve hours in a day, and so on.

Numerology 12 breaks down into the number number 3 and carries the same energetics of collaboration, groups, and growth.

General The Hanged Woman Card Upright Meaning

Suspended in time when all is up in the air, this is a stage where you feel stuck between the momentum of the future and the speculation of the past. Delays and indecision are to be expected, and it is in your best interest to prolong any decision making. Think outside of yourself, and try your best to see the big picture. This inconspicuous small moment could have a big impact. Feeling stuck with nowhere to go is temporary. Constant activity keeps the ego busy, but by practicing patience you are allowing other opportunities to unfold for you. Give yourself permission to receive! Delay instant gratification and put in the time and effort so that you can see your big vision come to life. Ask yourself what tiny thing you can give up now to get to the end goal. Sacrifice small pleasures to invest in your long-term success.

General The Hanged Woman Reversed Meaning

Putting a lot of effort and energy into a situation or person is wearing you down, especially when you are not seeing the return. Stop sacrificing your time and values to please other people! If you’re putting off a decision to avoid confrontation or responsibility, it may come back to haunt you. The time will come when you will finally have to speak your truth. Feeling stuck and unfulfilled is increasing your awareness of what you do want. This suspension in time is actually a blessing in disguise! Meditate on your issues so that you can gain much-needed clarity before making any moves. Utilize patience, sit still, and realize your life is bigger than this one moment. There are always other options, and they will reveal themselves to you as you keep going toward your path.
