Welcome to another TAROT TUESDAY!
My jaw literally dropped when I pulled this card for today. The synchronicity goes way beyond a simple coincidence. You just can’t make this stuff up!
At the beginning of every year, I pull twelve cards – one for each month. And, the card I had pulled for July, back on January 1st, was The Hermit!
So, today I bring to you The Hermit!
The Hermit card is from the Major Arcana, and you may recall they are the cards that represent life lessons, karmic influences and the big archetypal themes that are influencing your life and your soul’s journey to enlightenment.
The Hermit shows that you are taking a break from everyday life to draw your energy and attention inward and find the answers you seek, deep within your soul. You realize that your most profound sense of truth and knowledge is within yourself and not in the distractions of the outside world. You leave behind the mundane to set off on a journey of self-discovery, led only by your inner wisdom and guiding light. Now is the perfect time to go on a weekend retreat or sacred pilgrimage, anything in which you can contemplate your motivations, personal values and principles, and get closer to your authentic self.
The Hermit often appears when you are at a pivotal point in your life and considering a new direction. Through meditation, contemplation, and self-examination, you may begin to re-evaluate your personal goals and change your overall course. You will look at your life with a deeper, more spiritual understanding and a few of your priorities will change as a result.
The Hermit also represents the desire to turn away from a consumerist or materialistic society to focus on your inner world.
The Hermit may appear in your life as a spiritual mentor here to raise your vibration and enhance your consciousness. The beauty of this mentor is that, while he may be an expert in his own right, he will teach you how to find your answers within you.
Well, there you have it. I hope that someone besides me gets something incredible from the message in this card! It’s funny too, that July had pretty much been a month of hibernation for me. I’ve attended no music events and have hardly left my house except to go to work.
Here’s to your inward journey!
