Self-Care with The Hermit

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Hermit.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-09-01

If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean to take time to do some soul searching.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to take some time alone to do some soul searching regarding yourself and your life.

Who are you? What do you want? What are you doing? Where are you going?

You know what areas of your life you need to be inspecting: the areas that don’t quite feel right to you right now. Those are the areas that you need to be digging deep on and looking into. It’s not going to be about what other people are telling you. It’s going to be about what your soul is telling you.
