Meaning When you see the Hermit in your day, know that you are likely in for some alone time. And that's not a bad thing! You could also experience some influence from a Virgo in the day or situation at hand.

That could very well be the message for you when you see this card in your day or in your Tarot reading. This could be a nice respite if things have been busy and chaotic for a little bit. This card brings with it not just solitude, but also a time of reflection. If you ask Tarot about love and see this card, the gentle message is, you are better off alone at this time.

When the Hermit appears he brings the message that, you have the light of solutions and clarity in your hand. How will you use it? Alone time is the best answer when it is the Hermit asking the question.

And thus the Hermit is the perfect card to symbolize the zodiac sign Virgo. Virgo is the Mutable Earth Sign that is practical and reliable, and very philosophical in nature. Virgo also likes their alone time to conduct all of their reflection and philosophizing. This is a card that sends the message that alone time and reflection is required.The important message from this card appears in the beacon of light being held by the Hermit. You hold the answers to your problems right in your hand, and if things seem bleak now, just remember that you have that light to guide you. The arrival of the Hermit in your day brings with it the message that, action is not favored on your situation at this moment in time.
