The Hermit Tarot Card
Introspection. Spirituality. Looking objectively at the world around. Learning for the sake of learning. Stepping back from the fast pace of life for a while to take stock of where you are. It may be time to consider the lessons of the past. Increasing knowledge for the sake of doing so. A need for space and time alone. Possibly a wise confidant or tutor. A beacon of knowledge. Traditionally, wisdom, reserve, meditation, secrecy.
Antisocial. Withdrawn. Senile. Lost in the dark. Possibly a victim of betrayal. Perhaps fears of growing old or being alone. This could be a warning to think more objectively. Also, beware of false or ignorant teachings. Traditionally, reclusiveness, isolation, lonliness. Be conscious of diseases related to aging, such as arthritis or hearing loss.
