Looking at this image, can you tell that this mermaid is caught by a net, or is he intentionally putting himself in a difficult position? Does it even matter how he gets into that net in the first place? Hanging upside down in the net is his present, and looking at him, he is not in any hurry to free himself from this upside-down position. With his spiky hair just inches from the pier floor, he looks out of the net with a cheeky expression on his face as if he knows something while you don’t, or as if he has found something you are still looking for.

II. The message of The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot in a reading

The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot is built with the image of a reversed perspective because its essence symbolizes paradoxical actions in life: contradictory, arrogance, yet accuracy. The card also contains a hint of truth, but it is the truth that is hiding behind the complete opposite. The biggest lesson that Hanged Man wants to send us is that we can only hold on to everything when we let go. We only win when we accept defeat. We can move forward because we know how to stand still. By stopping our own time, we have obtained cosmic time!

In a reading, The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot reminds us that the way we approach things through what we are seeing is not necessarily the best way! When we want to force others to do what we want, that is when we should let go. When we want to do our own thing, that is when we should make sacrifices. When we most want to act, that is when we should wait. The paradox is that every time we want to leave something, we will find exactly what we need!

III. The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot upright meanings

No matter what your current situation may look like, The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot wants you to let go and surrender. He asks you to stop trying to control the outcome, stop fighting what is going on, and detach yourself from it, just for a moment. You will find that the results you want to happen are not possible if you are still in the process of doing it. When you hear this, it may hurt your pride, but this is your time to sit down, be quiet and let the universe take you a little. Maybe you are stuck at a crossroads. At this point, you can only choose one of two solutions: either up or down, off or on, yes or no! You may find that you really want to change or fix something, but don’t know how to do it. If so, it is clear that you should stop, relax, and let go of things that are not under your control, such as life, circumstances, people.

The face of the mermaid hanging upside down is not malicious or evil, but it shows calmness and freedom. The halo behind his head represents the fire of wisdom that is illuminating the dark areas of the soul. It is time to let the attitudes and desires that are no longer useful completely disappear from your life. Sacrifice will help bring about more positive changes in life, instead of stubbornly trying to hold everything in hand. Above all, this is also the right time to reflect and meditate on all aspects of yourself in life. Especially when you want to see clearly what really works for you.

The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot reflects the need to stop a certain action, therefore, hesitation may appear. Decisions or actions that need to be taken will be delayed, even at times, when you become aware of the urgent need to act. In fact, it may be better to delay making a decision or taking action now to give you more time to deal with the situation at hand and to look at the situation in a better way. If you can find yourself a little more time or delay any action for the time being, then you can actually create a different and better outcome. This is a card that implies procrastination and waiting, and that these may be things you need to do to allow new possibilities to happen. Sometimes inaction will help you find more opportunities about other options that are available to you and allow even more attractive options to emerge.

The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot can sometimes imply that you are feeling trapped or confined in your life. You need to understand why you are feeling this way, and how to free yourself from these limitations. Accordingly, the card talks about liberation. You need an emotional release from the things that are giving you a feeling of being trapped. Accept and be content with your current circumstances. You may need to be a little more vulnerable and open to other experiences, but this will help you stop struggling and let go of your need for control. That is when you can really let go of all the worries and preoccupations you have, and you will find these preoccupations suddenly disappear and a new reality opens up.

The reversed position of the mermaid reminds you to look at yourself from a completely different perspective, although the image also implies that your life is being put on hold for a while in order for you to realize what needs to change in you. Besides, The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot shows a reversal in your usual way of life and seeing the world from a completely different angle. Try hanging yourself upside down and look around. Is everything different? Your perspective will change completely, although the surroundings will still be the same when you look at it from a standing position. The card also requires you to turn your world around and look at your situation in various ways. In doing that, you will find something new that has proven to be more valuable to you on a deeper level. You may have to let go of your previous beliefs or even your way of life, but now is the time to renew, so that your life will be able to move forward.

The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot is a character who puts himself in a difficult situation, one who chooses the path of sacrifice in order to reach higher goals. He represents the will to give up the temptation of present satisfaction in order to gain an even better perspective in the future, and because of this sacrifice of will, he will be able to accomplish the goals he set for himself. He is like a martyr, putting his personal interests aside, and giving up his personal needs for better results. Consider areas of your own life that need to be done in a less selfish way. That selfishness can be for the benefit of others or to fulfill needs within yourself. The flip side is that you may need to measure your life by the areas where you are giving up too much of your own spiritual and material happiness for the sake of others. Sometimes sacrificing for the good can go too far!

Similarly, The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot also tells you that you should be mentally ready to give up a small interest in order to achieve greater results. This goal seems spiritual and personal. You may need to make an investment of time, energy, and/or money in order to reap the rewards. You are dedicated to the cause and are opening yourself up to take on the task ahead of you, but first, you need time to pause and reflect.

In terms of work, if you are still looking for a job or have a desire to start a business, this card advises you to stay calm as now you need more time to think carefully about the path you will go, as well as hone some other necessary skills to improve yourself. If you already have a job, now, things don’t seem to have changed too much. In case you want to change jobs, it will take more time to consider this. If you want to quit your job to start a new project, in the process of collecting data, patiently sift through to find the information that will help you make the most appropriate decision!

If nothing special is happening at your job and you are bored with everything, it is time to see whether there is anything you can do to change the situation. Otherwise, don’t continue to blame yourself when things are still going slow. Gradually, things will definitely change! It is just that at this point, things have not improved, considering the original plan you set out. Be patient and clear your mind! And if you are still not satisfied, you can start looking for another job!

In terms of money and finance, The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot is a card about awareness. You should know that we must be the masters of money, not its servants. If we continue to fall into the whirlwind of money, now we are the ones who are destroying ourselves! If you attach too much importance to money, most of the people who come to you are just because of money.

If you still do not have a lot of money in hand, you should balance your finances by saving some. However, saving up is different from being stingy! Moreover, money is an object outside the body, so absolutely do not lose the precious feelings of people for you for the immediate benefits! And if you are a rich person, you should let your finances circulate. Sponsoring charities or animal-loving organizations will definitely help bring you even more great things in life!

If you are in a situation of need, the card says that it is time to learn to give. Give to widen the flow, even if all you have is a piece of bread. Give and you will get more! And then, you will realize that there will also be someone next to you willing to reach out to share with you their only rare piece of bread. Simple good deeds like this can turn the wheel of fortune, and help improve your financial situation to a better stage.

In terms of friends and colleagues, maybe your friends are the main factor that puts you in a dilemma where you cannot arbitrarily make decisions to completely solve a problem!

Then try to use your heart to understand the true nature of the problem, and then you will find a way to quickly get out of this stagnant situation! Regarding colleagues, you should focus on your main work. Contradictory opinions from colleagues only make you feel confused and disorganized. Remember that they are just people who give opinions, it is you who are responsible and do it yourself to get the job done. Therefore, careful consideration is required.

In terms of family and loved ones, The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot suggests that you may be caught in arguments between family members, or you are the one who argues with them. However, this is not the time to argue or express your own views as this can cause unhealed heartbreaks for everyone. You should lower your big ego, step back and be silent to listen to the concerns of your family members. In case it is not directly related to you, then just stay outside of it. It is also a way to express our sympathy to people as long-repressed emotions should also be released. And then, you should be the peacemaker and act as a mediator to heal the feelings between your loved ones.

In terms of romantic relationships, The Hanged Man Mermaid Tarot emphasizes the idea of letting go. For example, you should learn to let go of someone you cannot reach as maybe this will help create an opportunity for someone more suitable for you to show up! But the above example will only succeed when you yourself have enough reason and determination to overcome the difficult challenge at the first entrance. To do that, you probably need to let go of your misconceptions about your love and dependence.

If you are single, do not do things that make you feel pressured. Instead, take care of yourself both inside and out, so that when the right time comes, true love will appear to you. If you are already in a relationship, the card advises you to let go of negative emotions from petty attachment or thoughts away from reality to ease your mind. At the same time, you should also regularly confide and discuss with your lover to help your bonding become stronger. And if you are in a long-term relationship, it is possible that one of you is stuck at a crossroads, or a third person may appear. If you personally feel that things are still going great for you, then you should do some research to see if your partner is feeling the same way!

Regarding married couples, you should arrange everything with your spouse and temporarily put aside the worries in life. The two of you can plan for dates at cafes or your favorite restaurants which are full of sweet memories, enjoying delicious food and the music you used to listen to when you were young in love. These simple but romantic activities will help you re-warm your emotions and return to the busy reality of life.

In terms of health, if you feel that your physical condition is not good, then you should change your misconceptions about health care. This is the time when you need to take care of yourself more than ever. You should eat more healthy foods and change your bad habits. In addition, you should also start getting regular medical checkups. That is not to say you can ignore everything and put all the responsibility of handling things on your doctor.

In addition to following what your doctor advises, you should research and ponder more deeply about your health problems. Chances are there are things you think you have done right, but that is not the case! So you may want to consider other solutions. Your health will eventually get better, but it will be quite a long process. If you are under treatment, what you need to do is stay positive as that is the most important factor in the healing process. Always keeping a steady and optimistic spirit in the midst of an illness as it is one of the best medicines for you at the moment!
