The Hermit & The Six Of Swords…
Everyday I will be pulling two cards from my tarot deck to see what sort of energy I can expect to encounter during the day. This is a great way to learn tarot card combinations, it’s great to learn the individual meanings but when you pull two cards that have a very different energy, it can be difficult to interpret the meaning of the two cards together. Hopefully my daily diary will give you some tips on how combining the two cards can create a union of energy.
The Hermit is number 9 in the Major Arcana and is ruled by the horoscope sign Virgo. When the Hermit card appears we may feel the need to have some alone time. It could be a good time to reflect what is going on in our inner world rather than focusing on our external environment.
There maybe a feeling of isolation and detachment from other’s. It may be a time when we have to face life alone or even if there is a room full of people we may feel alone. There is nothing wrong with solitude it gives you time to think things through without being interrupted or influenced by other people.
This could be a great time to seek professional advice, therapy or counselling from an older, wiser individual who can help shed light on our inner state of consciousness.
