The Hermit

Danny Wilsher

Key Meanings: Solitude, introspection, wisdom, guidance


The Hermit typically depicts a figure standing alone with a lantern, symbolizing the search for inner wisdom and guidance through solitude and introspection. This card represents a period of introspection, seeking answers within oneself, and the quest for deeper understanding. It suggests a time of withdrawal from the external world to focus on inner reflection and spiritual growth.


When The Hermit appears in a reading, it signals a need for introspection and soul-searching. It suggests that you may be entering a period of solitude or withdrawing from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to seek answers within yourself. This card invites you to embrace solitude as a means of gaining insight and wisdom.

The Hermit encourages you to trust your inner voice and follow your own path, even if it diverges from the mainstream. Just as the Hermit holds a lantern to light his way in the darkness, you are being called to illuminate your own path by tapping into your inner wisdom and intuition.

This card also symbolizes the importance of seeking guidance from wise mentors or spiritual teachers who can offer wisdom and support on your journey. It may be a time to seek out a mentor or to connect with your own inner guru through practices such as meditation, journaling, or contemplation.


  • Embrace solitude as an opportunity for self-reflection and inner growth.

  • Trust your inner wisdom and intuition to guide you on your path.

  • Seek guidance from wise mentors or spiritual teachers.

  • Take time to listen to the whispers of your soul and honor your inner truth.
