The Hermit Tarot Card in Your Reading

Some people call the Hermit tarot card the dark night of the soul. The nights when you lie awake and think about your life, about yourself, and what you need to do. This does not mean per se you are upset, but you wonder about the mystery of who you really are at a soul level.

The card tells you, you cannot look too far ahead, so you do not know if the path you have chosen is the right one. Some people see this as a challenge, but others see it as a problem. It all depends on how you look at the figure on this map and how he searches for a safe path. But if there is one thing you would rather not do, it is hiking in the mountains when it is cold and dark and only has a small lantern and a walking stick. It’s not much to have when you’re walking there all by yourself.

It’s the way you want to meet your soul. With all the distractions we have today, it’s very easy not to worry about who you are and what you stand for. Let alone what you want. Some questions are just too hard to answer.

Still, you’ll have to think a little deeper when you pull the Hermit. Is there a situation that needs a solution? Is there a question that wants an answer? Are you going in the direction you want to go? Think about that. You don’t have to have an answer right away. Sometimes it’s good to not have an answer for a while. Although it can make you temporarily insecure, there is nothing wrong with it.

Not knowing is also totally new freedom. Depending on whether you really want to decide to solve this mystery, you can either let go of the situation or strive to find an answer. Sometimes meditation can help you find your path and direction.
