Hermit Tarot Card Portal to the Stars

9. Hermit : Solitude


A sole flower hangs suspended in a world of mountains. The blues of the card are quiet and feel cold, as we can sometimes feel that we are “out in the cold.” The pointed heights of the mountains are both a challenge and a goal but point toward the light of awareness that can show us the way. The fiery star-lantern is bright, and powerful, throwing light on the snow of the mountain tops so that we may see in the darkness of space. The mountain cut off on the right poses a question: why? Have I cut myself off? Have I cut my nose off to spite my face? Is the goal I have set easier than I have envisaged?  

In a Reading

There are times when we just need to be alone with ourselves. To think, ponder and question our own path or motives behind our actions. There are also times when we feel lonely and unable to connect to people, to ask for help or feel disconnected.

The Hermit card tell us that in our search, there is always a guiding light if we are willing to look up and perceive it, listen and reach out. Do we need the loneliness? Do we just need time out?
