The Hanged Man suggests stagnation or suspension. A period of hesitation to make a decision may be indicated. Considering the serene expression on his face, some Tarot readers consider that when this card appears in your reading you should welcome whatever life's throwing at you with open arms. Trying to run and hide isn't going to solve your problems. Take some time off and focus on solving them. Even though you're at a crossroads, don't make a choice right away. Meditate on your issues in order to come up with the best strategy to tackle them. It's not easy but that's the right thing to do.
Work: Nothing much may seem to be happening on the work front and no wonder you're sick and tired of this entire situation. Try to figure out whether there's something you can do about it. Things are changing but not as fast as you want them to. Pick up the pace of activity a little bit.
Love: The time has come to let go. If you're experiencing unrequited love, now is a good time to move on. If you and your partner have been moving in different directions for too long, maybe you should part ways. If everything seems fine, maybe your partner doesn't feel the same way.
