The Hermit Card Meaning

The Hermit Card Meaning

In Tarot, the Hermit card represents introspection, soul seeking, analysis, and self-reflection. It signifies a moment of quiet and seclusion rather than socializing or action. This card's fundamental symbol is a robed man or monk holding a lantern and wielding a staff. The landscape seems desolate.

Upright Meaning

In a Tarot reading, the upright Hermit card represents wisdom, inner strength, prudential behavior, caution, watchfulness, patience, and seclusion. You may be frustrated with those who do not see what you do, and you may want to be alone. You're scuba diving and figuring things out for yourself. It's possible that you need to be alone to undertake the necessary self-reflection right now.

Reverse Meaning

In a Tarot reading, the reversed Hermit card represents imprudence, hastiness, stupid acts, and rash and immature behavior. You may be too isolated from society and in dire need of the companionship of others. It may also signal that, despite your current focus on being alone, you are still refusing to deal with your real difficulties, both inwardly and outwardly.

Love Meaning

In a Tarot love reading, the Hermit card represents a new beginning. If you're single and have recently retreated (perhaps due to earlier heartbreak), you're finally ready to put your heart out there again. If you're in a relationship, this could imply that you and your spouse need to concentrate on each other. Although independence is god and important, there is a reason you are together.
