The Major Arcana – Part 4

Tarot: The Hermit

We continue delving into the Major Arcana Cards in Tarot.

Click for part one, part two and part three of this series.

The Hermit (IX)

The Hermit card can stand for what you think it would, based on the word ‘Hermit’, i.e. a period of time alone, but comfortable with your solitude and a time of contemplation. Taking this time will allow you to gain balance and really get the true facts of a situation. At this time you may experience some Divine intervention, perhaps even consolation or a spiritual exercise. Whether through some sort of formal education or otherwise, it is time to educate yourself, enlightenment is needed and The Hermit wants you to shed light on a situation. Ultimately the experience will lead you to a greater understanding of your character.

The Wheel of Fortune (X)

‘This too shall pass’, is a great way of thinking of The Wheel of Fortune card, it is a reminder that whilst you may be going through a very difficult period, and even experiencing major change or upheaval, nothing lasts forever – everything is cyclical and an end will come. To truly know what it means to be happy, there is a thought that we first must experience troublesome times. Phases of difficulty – whether they are inner questions, emotional problems, or even material issues will eventually resolve and give way to more prosperous moments.

Justice (XI)

The Justice card may appear at a time when you are facing a legal or court matter, or may just mean that you need to behave in a way that is judicial. The card is counselling on being moderate and playing fair, no matter how difficult, it is this above board behaviour that will bring success in the end. The card is also representative of a need to live life in balance, living on the edge or at the extremes will cause you untold unhappiness. In relationships particularly, seeing things from their perspective and deciding to compromise is the best outcome for all.
