The Hermit is one card that might have made an appearance during your last tarot card session, but what does it mean?
Like so many other cards in a tarot deck, the Hermit's symbolism changes depending on how it's laid in front of you during your reading.
When the Hermit appears right side up, this indicates that you're in a solitary position that renders you able to collect your thoughts and reassess your life. Now is the opportunity for a little "me" time to see what creativity can come out of your mind. While The Hermit can be perceived as lonely, it should be thought of as a representative of independence more than anything.
If this card is laid upside down during a tarot reading, this may indicate that you're not taking enough time to yourself to reflect on your life as a whole. In this instance, it may be best to step back and gauge how your life is progressing.
