The meaning of each tarot card - The Hermit

The Hermit card, card number 9 in the tarot set, is a mysterious card at first glance. It has a feel of inner thought and isolation, of the path to self discovery. And indeed, it can mean just that. However, this card also can mean seeking advice from others, particularly someone you feel understands the situation well. What is important with the Hermit card is that you should take a step back and think over your approach. Are you seeing things are they really are? Are you acting on past experiences, good or bad? Do you think emotions are driving your actions when they shouldn't? 

Important questions and ones that it does you no harm to ask yourself when you see this card. Ultimately, there is hope. The light of the hermit's lamp lights the way forwards and guides you safely onwards. 

(If you are a beginner tarot reader, I fully recommend the Original Rider Waite Tarot Deck for it's simplicity and readability.)
