the wild unknown tarot The Hermit meaning and interpretation

 

The tortoise, quietly sitting with a lantern upon his back. There is nothing in the world for The Hermit, he discovers this and dwells within the place that cannot be named, spoken of, yet gives life to himself and all that is seen and felt within the world. He dwells here, for this is where the essence of all life springs. The Hermit is in a period of incubation. Simply merging with his own source and dwelling in this sweet honey nectar, he cannot describe. He gives value to this time alone and deeply knows he must remain silent and still as life is drowning him into the ocean of his being.

 

The Hermit solitude is not purposeless and those who may try and convince him otherwise must not be engaged with at this time. There is a purpose for this necessary solitude with oneself and honoring and allowing it to be. This period allows our own wisdom to spring forward allowing ourselves to be our own guide, not relying on a guide from the world. The Hermit is listening, feeling, and discovering the depth of his own being. The depth he is discovering feels ancient. As he rests in the vastness of his own being he sees how he has allowed or restricted life. He appreciates the unending beauty that springs forth from his being and the infinite expansion he is intricately woven into. This time in The Hermits life is not necessarily linked with much doing and action as it is a very introspective and contemplative time. However, when action does spring forth whether now or in time it will be right action in accordance to the Hermits unique path. There will be a undeniably natural movement when the time comes for action.

 

Sitting still within ones own being is a beautiful way to discover our divine essence and to move from this space with grace and ease. This essence is beyond what arises within its sphere {thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs} yet contains all that is found within. The Hermit has normally experienced tremendous pain before going into the phase of solitude and this pain brings him to question all things. This pain can be thought of as a gift, because this pain will make one question life and how they are moving within this world. As we sit within our vastness and discover our own miraculousness we discover that we do not need anything from the world to fill our lives with. We are discovering the abundance we thought we need from the outside can only be satisfied if we truly feel that this abundance is already here springing from inside ones own being. The Hermit does not go into solitude in hopes of gaining anything besides discovering his own freedom that is his birthright. The Hermits self discovery is an ever expanding journey that has no end. He discovers a deep contentment in himself as he is no longer deeply disturbed by leaving his body. The Hermit discovers the infinite nature of himself and all beings. This allows a deep gratitude to take over his being and allows him to be a true instrument of the divine. The veils of illusion continue falling away and the truth of the divine is all his attention gravitates towards.
