Significance And Meaning Of The Hanged Man Tarot Card
The card shows an old hermit standing alone on top of the mountain. The mountain is snow-capped, which indicates his spiritual mastery, growth and accomplishment. He is now on the path of enlightenment and self-discovery. This has awakened his mind, and now he is in a state of heightened awareness. In his right hand, he is holding a glowing lantern with a six-pointed star inside. It is considered as the sign of Solomon, a paraphrase of wisdom. The lamp is in front of the hermit; it helps him in his passage, showing light all the way. But the magnitude of the light is only a few steps, which means he must continue his journey to know where he is going. Everything will not be revealed at once.
He will know things step by step. In his left hand , the hermit is holding a long staff. The staff represents a sign of power and authority. He uses his staff to balance his ordeals.

Drawing the Hermit in an upright direction indicates his search for knowledge. The hermit, in general folklore, is a person who is a knowledge seeker. He is a lonely wanderer in the path of the night. He is listening to his inner voice, and the search for inner peace will reach its much-needed destination. But to hear his inner voice, he must get disconnected from this outer world. The noise of the crowd may distract him, but he needs to overcome this distraction. He is walking through the darkness with a lantern in his hand. The card suggests the lantern is a sign of wisdom, and in various mythology, it indicates that he is guided by the northern star with his low light. He wants to reach his destination, which is his home.
The Hermit wants to be alone, but he is not afraid to take risks. He is a logical thinker that will help clear all the turbulence in his everyday life. Hermit also indicates to take action with authority and belief in yourself. You are searching for that inner divine advice to seek what is right.

However, if you are already in a relationship, then some self-introspection is needed for both you and your partner.
