The Hermit is the guide and wise sage of the tarot. When the path ahead seems dark and confusing, he (or she!) shines a light for us so that we may more easily find our way. But the lamp can only illuminate part of the path – we need to look deeply within in order to navigate the rest of our journey. We need to put complete trust in ourselves.
In order to learn to trust your own inner wisdom and knowledge, and so be your own guide through life, we need to learn to acknowledge our Divine inner spark. Turn within and nurture this spark carefully, so that it may grow into a flame, and then you will be able to guide others by illuminating their path, inspiring them to also trust their own inner wisdom.
