The Hermit, represents as the card shows, a man looking at a light and following his path. This is the time to go inside and perhaps do some soul searching around an area you are questioning in your life. You have the answers by quietening yourself and listening to your heart in inner wisdom. The staff carried by the Hermit is a symbol of the narrow path you may take, the path could be rocky at times but you will be guided and reach a level of inner wisdom and evolution. The staff is in the Hermitâ€™s left hand, the hand being associated with the subconscious mind. The snow at his feet represents the heights of spiritual attainment. He wears the grey cloak of invisibility. His secrets are not for everyone, only for those earnestly seeking them and those willing to climb the heights to wisdom.
