The Hermit - Major Arcana Card #9

September 17, 2017

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:


IX.  The Hermit


The Hermit speaks to us about the awareness and truth that can be harnessed from consulting our inner guide.  Where in the body do You live?  Find this place inside and spiral into it.  Deep within – where the personal, private qualities are pure from external effect – you find honest answers.  What is dim in consciousness can be illuminated by your own internal inspection.  You’ve built your home to retreat to when searching for a new definition of yourself, not to escape or avoid facing reality.  Now is a time for returning to the substance inside the shell.  


Suggested prompts:


upright: inner-truth; contemplation     

right: increased consideration; checking in with yourself

left: old beliefs; outworn ideas 

reversed: escapism; diversion
