The Hanged Man is the card of sacrifice, surrender, and waiting. The Hanged Man is suspended upside down, viewing the world from an entirely different perspective. Even so, he shows little discomfort. He is serene and calm, with a halo around his head. This new perspective is giving him enlightenment.
The Hanged Man is a reminder that though we may want life and love to go a certain way, it is not always up to us on how things play out. Sometimes, the timing may not be quite right. Other times, being patient, doing nothing, and just letting the situation play out by itself gets us a better result. Additionally, there are times in life where sacrifice and a shift in perspective is needed.
If you are asking about love advice, and you draw the Hanged Man, that means that you are advised to take things slow in the relationship. You should play the waiting game until the time is right to express your feelings. There is a lot of sacrifice ahead in the relationship, but you must withstand it for true love.
For love, the Hanged Man as advice means that you should expect things to not always play out how you imagined them.
