The Hermit has been a personal favourite of mine since I first started reading. Solitude is a staple of self love. The ability to be with one’s self and listen to what the mind has to say in long stretches of silence is vitally important in the quest of self discovery.
This card represents the kind of cold and candid self-reliance the last five years has taught me to foster. I may be partnered right now, but I have to rely on my self long before I rely on him; nothing is permanent. The only thing I truly have is myself.
