The Hermit and The Tower – what does it mean?
The Hermit and The Tower represent huge changes coming and the preparation for such.
Life: Preparation, sudden change, chaos, seeing the tranquillity
Love: Sudden break up, loss, drama, pausing to prevent further damage, taking a break
Career: Job loss, pay cut, mistakes at work, needing to go through your work with a fine tooth comb, being reminded to remain calm
Health: Sudden illness or injury, working too hard, needing to shift to a more mentally focused way of life
You are being called to both acknowledge the chaos around you as well as the delicate light of hope that you have the power to turn into a much brighter guide to calmer seas.
The Hermit interpretation
The Hermit pauses when it is necessary.
You have survived a whirlwind and are eager to begin a new era but first, introspection awaits. During a previous time, you acquired spiritual skills previously unknown to you. Now you hold the cards, you must await in solitude for your next move. You do not stand in darkness, using your light as your beacon of hope, radiating in the distorted sky.
Never be fooled that standing still means lack of progression or the inability to push yourself. You are aware that a pause like this creates the energy and contemplation needed to commit yourself to future endeavours that will no doubt see you channelling your focus.
In love, life and career, you consider your next steps. Everything you need is inside you, and when in a reflective state, you can search away from the hustle and bustle of distraction. In your disconnect is where you find and overcome any negative force that battles your current state.
‘I stand alone but I stand tall in the search for myself’ – The Hermit
The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
