As you know, this second blog post has been posted much later than I intended when I started the blog…

There are many reasons for this, partly due to changing my day job and the stresses of daily life during the challenging times we are in, but mostly I’ve been busy completing my Biddy Tarot Certification! Hopefully things will be more on schedule from now on.

Because of my recent retreat from the internet and most of us spending time at home through lockdown, I felt that the Hermit would be an appropriate card to share for this post.

9 The Hermit (The Wise Man)

Key Words:  going within, retreat, solitude.

In Rider Waite, the Hermit is seen as an older man, sanding on what seems to be a mountain holding a lantern in his right hand and a staff in his left hand. He is facing to the left so there is a chance that this wise man has brought illumination to something from your past (if you are using a spread with multiple cards pay attention to what he is shining his lantern on) take time to connect with the card and what it may be illuminating for you.

This card may also be a call to take some time out for quiet contemplation, study or meditation.
