MORE ABOUT the HERMIT ...
The HERMIT is akin to the zodiac sign of Virgo. Wise, practical and introspective the HERMIT is often referred to as an unofficial counselor/teacher at your service. As s/he spends most of his/her time alone the HERMIT is not likely to offer unsolicited advice. Ask however and the HERMIT will tell.
Put another way the light and wisdom of the HERMIT comes from an inside source. It is used to make practical moves through the material plane and so here it is a case where intuition is followed, practiced in every day life.
The HERMIT has something in common with the Hierophant how we operate and navigate cumbersome aspects of life here on earth. Both are considered spiritual cards. Also, in agreement with the HIEROPHANT a slow steady approach is warranted. Well aware that every step taken counts it is no wonder the HERMIT is engaged in long bouts of self-reflection.
At times the HERMIT may represent a soul who feels lost especially when HANGED MAN near by. This is the HERMIT’s shadow side. The seeker/subject can become so discouraged they slow down to an even slower pace perhaps entering altered states of consciousness. Drugs and/or alcohol may be an issue. Then again the HERMIT is primarily known as a spiritual card. Leaving the scene, so to speak, to ponder his/her own private world in search of inner guidance is more strongly indicated, but, as always, it will depend on surrounding cards.
CURRENT ASTROLOGY 2018 for the HERMIT...
The zodiac realm of VIRGO influences the meaning of the HERMIT tarot card. Mercury is the ruling planet of VIRGO. It is also worth noting Regulus, a fixed star, now resides in Virgo after over 2160 years. There is a strong feminine/receptive/ intuitive energy that has made itself known in the sign of the Virgin & Mother Earth.
Regulus is clearly a long-term influence that will unfold over the next two thousand + years where the focus on the qualities of Virgo and Mercury will light the way under the HERMIT.
Below is a list of the 12 Sun Signs and the key words/areas of life that come up for the seeker subject when the HERMIT appears in a reading:
