The hermit tarot card is one of the 22 cards in the Great Arcana. The card stands for our need to sometimes live in seclusion. We all need self-determination, to come to terms with our thoughts and feelings and to find solutions. The card can also stand for such seclusion that is not self-chosen or for students and philosophers who think a lot.
The hermit also stands for the need to think about the meaning of life and existential issues, as well as for a shield.
The hermit can also stand for a teacher or mentor, someone who gives us advice – a real person or a book.
He represents caution and caution. But there is also some corruption, disappointment and betrayal. You will wonder about certain things, but remember that all the answers are within you.
You feel a need to think about what you really want. If you do not have a job, it can mean unemployment and isolation, as well as an attraction to literature, authorship or research. If you have a job, the card means that the job gives you little social contact.
The card means you are not interested in love and fellowship. You have a great need to be alone.
You solve your finances on your own and look for solutions yourself.
