Literary Tarot: The Hermit
“I find there is a quality to being alone that is incredibly precious. Life rushes back into the void, more vivid, fuller than before.” - Anne Morrow Lindbergh
The Hermit - Solitude, introspection, inner wisdom, reflection, inner guidance, recharging
Reflective and introspective, the Hermit is a reminder that deep within us lie reserves of strength, wisdom, and joy. When life is bustling and our minds are humming, we often forget that we need the time and space to be alone with ourselves to tap into these reserves. These moments of quiet, of idleness, of introspection are where we nurture the seeds that flourish in our outer lives. The Hermit invites us to go beyond merely setting aside time for recharging to finding delight in our own company, to celebrating our relationship with ourselves, and to enjoying the surprising pleasures of solitude.
