The hermit Tarot Card Meaning
Arcana of movement, although it is a slow movement, refers to everything that is destined for an evolution that is not very manifest but deep, secret, such as the winter gestation of the seed in the earth. It therefore represents solid, concrete, time, the supreme judge of all things, respect for the past and for tradition. In the slow and sure footsteps of the monk, in search of himself and of the way of the spirit, it symbolizes prudence, discretion, confidentiality, moderation, patience, constancy, a sense of duty, which are all wonderful gifts to have. It is, therefore, the mystery of wisdom, discernment, concentration, serenity, the methodical search for truth: a right ambition, especially if addressed to the levels of esoteric knowledge, asceticism, silence. When this card comes up in the game, the querent’s life situation is probably not exciting. He feels tired, unmotivated, tried by obstacles, but the subtle forces, which are on his side, invite him to resist and not to abandon the work he has started. The ideal condition is isolation, a moment of loneliness and withdrawn into oneself, perhaps suggested by a disappointment suffered: it is better to cultivate faith in oneself rather than in others. The figure of the right Hermit is always positive; it ensures good advice, wise and sincere words, precious explanations for the consultant, secrets revealed to those who are worthy of it. Thanks to an invisible protection, any evil attempts to the detriment of the querent will be foiled. All the initiatives will have slow development but a positive outcome, because the path taken is undoubtedly the right one. Nothing to fear, therefore, from a temporary setback. Excellent latent abilities, spiritual fruitfulness, extrasensory and telepathic skills.
The symbolism behind the card
The Hermit is none other than the old sage who bases the future on knowledge of the past, proceeding slowly and cautiously, in absolute solitude. He leans on a stick, with which he captures the instinctive energies of the universe, which he knows he must subdue and control so that they do not become destructive.
As yoga and other oriental disciplines teach, he is aware that one cannot possibly penetrate the mystery until one has learned to master the mind by training it in solitude through concentration and meditation. His right hand holds up a lantern that illuminates his path but which he himself partially veils with a flap of his cloak so as not to hurt the eyes of the passer-by, not accustomed to the light of knowledge.
But it is a knowledge about which there is no illusions, because he recognizes it as infinitesimal compared to what it has yet to learn. It is not for nothing that his great gift is modesty: it is the awareness that one’s knowledge, compared to the entity of science, is still nothing. Thus, renouncing his proud intellectual ambitions, he humbly limits himself to gathering the essential notions for his journey on this earth. The two-tone cloak, red-brown like the earth, on the outside, and blue like the air, on the inside, is worn over a richer dress, with an evident allusion to the priority of the heart and initiatory knowledge, which is not it reveals itself to the first comer, compared to material wealth.
In the most ancient depictions, the lantern was replaced by an hourglass, an emblem of time and therefore of the god Saturn, or rather old age, loneliness, silence, winter bearing the future and not yet manifesting fruits. It is no coincidence that the Hermit escapes the contact of others, lives in community with the ideal, secretly operating in the invisible with a slow, imperceptible gestation. It is connected to the sephirah Yesod, the foundation, the condensed potentiality of the seed, the demiurge, lord of virtuousness. Corresponds to the number nine, or three times three, perfection raised to a power and to the letter tet of the Hebrew alphabet.
