THE HERMIT in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Solitude, isolation, looking inward, reflection.
Mostly blue and grey, which are quite dark and almost lonely Colours.
The lantern offers the single light in the darkness of the rest of the card and is a symbol of hope or light at the end of the dark tunnel.
This card is about being on our own, either through choice or enforced. It is a card of refection, of looking inward, of just being with yourself away from the world.
This card usually points to the need for some quiet time by yourself. It may be forced isolation.
Take stock, reflect, get to know yourself, really allow yourself to feel and experience what is going on in your life.
The light guiding you forward is offering truth and wisdom. It is also lighting your way to the place you want to go. This may be a physical place and it can also be a spiritual place.
This can be challenging card for many people as they are not used to just their own company. If you can make friends with yourself, you will never be lonely.
With abundant blessings.
