Seeing the hanged man represents change, but usually an alteration in mental attitude rather than physical circumstances. There are two main meanings: The reader may be in some type of limbo-- you may have to bide your time while one chapter of your life comes to an end before another one begins afresh. Regardless, you should be patient despite your anxieties, because this time will best be utilized for careful reflection. There are valuable lessons to be learned.
The second meaning is to look at life from a different perspective, this often involves viewing from a more spiritual angle and placing less value on things material. Follow your heart under all circumstances.
Dreams of the hanged man may link to impending change (disguised as death-- the end of something). Personal sacrifice; the death of one part of self so that further growth and change can occur; surrender. The pains and struggles when realizing this truth.
Symbolized also by crucifixion (a sense of self-sacrifice in the maturing process)... You are surrendering and sacrificing your physical and ego needs for what you sense is a more spiritual and essential you.
