The Magus of the Voice of Light
The Hermit – Meaning in a Tarot reading :

Soul Searching

Appearance :
An old mysterious loner, swathed
in robes, fixes your gaze over the side of a mountain top
He finds his way with only a lighted tip of his staff as his lantern

Interpretation :
Instinctively you sense his wisdom, he sees through all distractions
to reveal the truth. The Hermit is your inner knowledge
constantly craving the answer to all of life’s dilemmas.
The Hermit comes to you on sleepless nights as you
try and make sense of your life & problems.
The Hermit card predicts that you will have meetings
with another who impresses you with their insight, they
will inspire you on several levels. You will absorb great
knowledge from someone who will look out for you.
You will enter a period of incredible curiosity. You
will be surprised that your outlook begins to mature rapidly.
You must be careful not to live in the past, relish your
memories but strive for new experience and make a point of
seeking out new friends, new situations.
The Hermit moves slowly towards a long held goal.
You will realise your ultimate purpose. Through
perseverance and by being ruthlessly critical with yourself.
and others your intuition, as the lantern, will light your way.
Your consciousness is expanding, you begin to form a
feeling for your true direction in life.
Be careful to organise your time to your best advantage

intension. Listen to your inner wisdom whilst avoiding introspection
and the lantern will reveal your path …

The Hermit is an important card in the Major Arcana.I see it as a meaningful card for both reflection and prayer, a way of sending one’ s soul to a quiet place, but only for a restful period ,as when on returns on the journey , one will be invited to use one’s insights for the healing and life of self and others.
