Danse Macabre The Hermit

The Hermit

If you are alert, open-minded and willing to cooperate, you will get your wish.


Soul-searching, introspection, being alone, guidance. The Hermit represents the need to turn away from the distractions of the everyday world in order to focus on the inner world.

The Hermit seeks answers within and knows they will only come with quiet and solitude. Sometimes we come to a point in life when we begin to question the obvious, sensing that there is a deeper reality, and we begin to search for it. This search is mainly a solitary quest because the answers do not lie in others, but in ourselves.

Meditation, contemplation, self-examination, and re-evaluation of life's goals may be important at this time; going on a personal quest.

Introspection. You need to develop the true power of a master. To do so, be content to be alone or with only those on your level. Do not waste time and energy on those not ready or not worthy. Introspection is required for self-mastery.

When reversed or otherwise ill-dignified:

Hastiness, imprudence, unreasoning caution or fear, emotional immaturity. Withdrawal from one's problems with no constructive plans.
