Hermit is a card about introspection and searching. This is a time to think things over, seek greater understanding, and look for the truth. This card may indicate that the questioner is going to be receiving guidance from a mentor, or that someone will come to them seeking guidance.

This card also symbolizes a desire to be left alone, a desire for stillness, seclusion, escape from distractions, retreating into privacy. If you are experiencing an upsetting situation, this card reminds you that it's acceptable to withdraw and retreat to a safe haven in order to process those emotions.
