The ruling planet of this number 12 card is Neptune that represents idealistic approach to life and self-sacrifice. The number 12 when analyzed closely is a higher octave number of the number 3. The number 3 in numerology represents careful planning, steady growth and spiritual development.

The Hanged Man card represents a man suspended upside down from the living World Tree.

The tree has its roots in the underworld, while it is being supported by the heavens above.

The calm and composed expression on the face of man establishes the fact that he is hanging from the tree at his own free will. The attire of the man is also highly significant - the red trousers represent human passion and physique, the blue coat represents knowledge and the yellow shoes represent high ideals.

The yellow halo around the head of man shows that he has achieved spiritual knowledge while the grey background suggestive of invisibility gives a subtle reminder that such knowledge is not to be flaunted. This card is all about ultimate surrender or martyrdom for ultimate good.

Upright Position: This card speaks of self sacrifice and surrender - be it materialistic or spiritual. It also suggests an ability to adapt to the needs of the time. It also may suggest that the seeker may have to be a little patient as she/he goes through a temporary phase of ill health, stress and anxiety.

Reversed Position: This represents a shallow and narrow attitude towards life. It may speak of a person who is stubborn and unwilling to adjust.
