    The Hermit Description

    An old man walks through a dark cave, away from the hustle and bustle, in search of something precious that he is looking for - the "truth" which is symbolized by a diamond lying half buried ahead of him.

    The staff that he uses for support and balance in living his life is losing its power. This loss of power and truth is represented by a small diamond on top of his staff.

    The guiding fire below his right hand is taken from the large candle behind him. This candle is a symbol of consciousness and society, and he leaves the real world behind him, every now and then, in his quest for the truth.

    But the journey is perilous and in it he encounters a line of fire in his path, showing how difficult the path is for someone who has to distance themselves from society.

    He is introspective, and realizes that the closer we are to the light, the darker the shadow will be on us.

    Yet he perseveres, and the two rings on his hat symbolize that he is enlightened by the truth.

    NOTE: The Tarot card meaning description is based on the Rider Waite cards.

    Upright Hermit Meaning

    This is a great time to take a break from the ‚Äúoutside world‚ÄĚ and look deep within yourself. Meditation, journaling, a getaway in nature, focusing on your hobby - whatever makes your soul happy. By detaching yourself from your everyday routine and the people around you, you can do the self-introspection needed to find the answers you‚Äôre looking for. Everything you need is already within you.


    Sometimes being alone for a while is needed to connect to my inner guidance.

    Reversed Hermit Meaning

    Although self-care and taking some time for yourself is necessary, try not to neglect your loved ones in that process. Alone time is essential for connecting to your soul and being the best version of yourself, but be reminded of other people’s needs as well. After some time of introspection, be ready to go back to your life, as an improved, more spiritual version of yourself!


    I know that being alone doesn’t necessarily mean being lonely - I cherish my alone time.
