The Hermit Card in an Upright Position
When the hermit card is in an upright position it means that you are looking and seeking answers from within. You want to understand things and you want to understand more about life. You do not have any distractions from the world and can truly take this time to focus and strive towards your spiritual goals. Take this time to review the direction of your life, goals and see what changes might need to be made. Only focus on the ones who are worthy to hear from you and don’t waste your time on the ones who might not be worthy of what you say or ready.
Reversed Meaning of Hermit
If you get the Hermit card reversed this means that you are struggling with connecting to yourself spiritually. You need to meditate and focus more on yourself spiritually. Refresh yourself spiritually and take time out to do meditate and look into creating new goals. Search within your soul and pay attention to what your inner voice is saying to you. Rebuild your spiritual self. You might also be feeling alone and isolated temporarily. Don’t shut the family and friends that you have near you because of the dilemmas you might be in. Be mindful of their needs and what they might be experiencing right now.
