The Hermit

At A Glance

Positive: Introspection, inner guidance, reflection

Negative: Being alone, isolation, withdrawal


The Hermit is numbered 9 in the Major Arcana.

The Hermit is on top of a snow-capped mountain, which symbolizes how he has reached the peak of awareness, mastery and growth through his introspection and self-discovery.

The Hermit is wearing a grey robe, which symbolizes a detachment from the outside world, and he is holding a lantern and a staff. The lantern has a 6 point star within, showing how he uses wisdom to guide his way, while the staff adds the balance required as he walks on his journey.

The Hermit stands alone, and sometimes it can be a lonely path towards understanding oneself.
