  • Remove yourself from this situation


The Hermit tarot card is the card of solitude and withdrawal.

Traditionally, this card shows an old man holding a staff in one hand and a lit lantern in the other. It’s a quiet and simple card with a powerful message. In this deck, the elder sloth hangs from his staff, holding a rainbow colored light to find guidance.

When you are faced with a tough situation or difficult decision, The Hermit whispers, “You already have all of the answers you need. You just need to go deep within yourself to find them.”

Along The Fool’s journey through the Major Arcana, this is the lesson of trusting yourself. Maturity comes when you feel confident in your own voice. But before you gain that confidence and maturity, you must first learn what your voice has to say.

Hone your intuition through deep self-knowledge. Quiet contemplation, meditation, and removal from the stresses and hassles of your daily life will help you strengthen your intuition. When you go within yourself, you will find the solutions you are looking for.
