For those of us living modern lives in the west, there’s not much of a reference point for The Hermit. Not a realistic one, anyway. Don’t worry, this card isn’t suggesting that you should go meditate on a mountaintop. It is about processing wisdom, taking what you’ve learned from the great thinkers of the ages and balancing that with what you’ve learned in your own experience. You don’t have to turn your back on society to do so, but this card is about finding your own voice, your own truth. Turn away from the external chaos and start listening to what’s going on inside. There’s wisdom in there.
