The Hermit Tarot Card

Tarot Card Meanings - The Hermit

Tarot Card Meanings - The Hermit
By Steven Wagenheim

This is one of those cards that gets so terribly misinterpreted. The Hermit is not what it appears to be and when people find out the real meaning of this mysterious card, they're quite surprised. Well, maybe you'll be surprised after reading this article. Whether you are or not, you WILL learn EXACTLY what the Hermit means in both its normal and reversed keys. I am sure you will find what you are about to learn quite fascinating.

Most people when they think of the card The Hermit, think that it refers to a person who is, in fact, a hermit; somebody who cuts himself off from the rest of the world. That is after all the normal definition of a hermit. Well, in this case, they are not exactly right. The normal key meaning of the card The Hermit doesn't mean this at all. In its normal position, The Hermit represents a situation where the solution to the problem is in front of you. All you have to do is look up and find it. It also means that it's okay to experiment with things to find a solution but care is required to avoid making costly mistakes.

However, the most important meaning of this card is to inform the subject that the ultimate responsibility is his. Yes, he can get guidance and assistance from outside sources, but in the final analysis, he has to be the one to take action.

Now, in reverse meaning, yes, The Hermit does stand for somebody who is trying to cut himself off from the rest of the world. The subject is engaged in activities that are harmful to his present situation. He feels isolated and alone. He feels like nobody cares. This really comes down to having a change of attitude as all of these "imagined" problems are just that.

In many cases, this card shows a person who is letting foolish pride get in the way. He is too stubborn to admit that he is wrong and won't let anybody help him because to him, that means admitting that he's weak and that he couldn't solve his problems without the help of those around him. Foolish pride can be a very destructive thing to all of us.

Whenever I see this card coming up in a spread, especially in the seventh position, it makes me want to shake the subject in order to knock some sense into him. Negativity on this scale is one of the most destructive forces in our world. No man is an island. I was told that many times in my life and it is very true. There is nothing wrong with admitting that we need help, and cutting ourselves off from the ones who can help us is just foolish.

The Hermit is what I call the "wake up" card.

Sometimes it's later than we think, and then it's too late to do anything about our situation.
