Here we see a man accepting his fate. There is no struggle. His face is serene. This man has been hung up by the mob, perhaps for what he has done, or for what he believes. But even though it’s others that have hung him up, it’s a form of self-sacrifice as he allows them to do this for the greater good. He’s not struggling against the injustice. He accepts his fate. When you see The Hanged Man in a reading, you may also be going through a situation where people around you don’t agree with what you’ve done, or don’t agree with your outlook.
Balance and equilibrium are at play when you draw the Justice card. There is balance in the situation you’re reading about – you might experience it as a sense of fairness, or balance is about to come into your life. Equilibrium is being restored. This balance is man-made and external to yourself. For this reason, it can sometimes relate to legal situations. If so, Justice will be served, and the outcome will be fair and impartial. This is the card of human justice and external balance.
