Upright: Soul-Searching, Reflection, Truth
Reversed: Loneliness, Confinement, Withdrawal
Soul-searching is the name of the game, and you’ve decided to take the time to explore that aspect of yourself. Wide-eyed truth seeker, you implore the deepest depths of your being so that you can know yourself in ways you didn’t know before. There was a certain restlessness with how you were living your day-to-day, knowing that there is a deeper meaning to life. Soul-searching tends to be a solo journey, so you may be finding yourself withdrawing from social activities and retreating inside yourself. You are seeking your deep inner truth and defining your core values, and if that means a night in with a glass of wine, then so be it. You are seeking alignment with your mind, body, and soul and are finding new ways of consciously prioritizing your beliefs into your daily life.
The Hermit asks that you take the time out of your busy schedule to connect with your higher self. Having trouble managing your day-to-day life, has ignited your feelings of dissatisfaction. In need of spiritual sanity, this is a great time to evaluate your priorities. A lack of inner reflection can cause you to miss the greater purpose in your life. Beware of sinking too deep into isolation and becoming disconnected from the outside world. It is totally fine to seclude yourself to find clarity and purpose, but don’t create your own confinement. Remember that this period of reflection is a choice, and you can free yourself from your own imprisonment at any time. Know that you are not alone, and that whenever you decide to reach out, a helping hand will be there to support you.
