The hanged man is a Major Arcana Tarot card. It depicts a man that is being hanged upside down by one ankle. He might be getting punished for his work. The card usually depicts sacrifices, letting go, etc. It can also signify total surrender in front of people.
There are always two different meanings of a tarot card, one is the upright and the other reverse. Both these cards can signify two different meanings when read.
Upright Hanged Man

Hence, the upright hanged man can be an important sign of changing your perspective. You might get aware of things in your life because of which your perspective is getting changed.
The hanged man can also be an indication of loss of control, or surrender. There might be consequences in your life because of which you might lose hope from everything and you might have surrendered. You might sacrifice everything in your life. It might be an indication of loss of hope and control from things around us. You might yourself are letting go of things present in your life.
Reverse Hanged Man
The reverse hanged man will go to have an opposite meaning from the upright version. A reverse hanged man might try to signify resistance. There are things in front of you that might be showing you the real picture of everything. But you might be ignoring everything and resisting the change that is necessary for your life.
The reverse hanged man can also signify being blocked or restricted. Tied legs can be a sign of being blocked or stuck by someone or something in your life. You need to let go of things and people stopping you from doing what is best for you. Hence, avoid ignorance from your life. The universe is sending lots of messages.
