Card #9: The Hermit

Upright Meaning

The Hermit is a seeker of knowledge, as well as a teacher- which means that he encourages you to contemplate and reflect. The Hermit also encourages action- so long as the action aligns with your true self.

Reversed Meaning

When seen in reverse, the Hermit warns you not to stay away from society for too long. While introspection is important, it is also critical not to become lost in yourself and your own doubts and insecurities. The Hermit reminds you to balance introspection with interaction.
