The Hermit and Two Of Swords tarot card combination – what does it mean?
Consider your options, but know that ruminating creates distorted patterns of isolation.
Life: Confused over next step, hesitation to go forth, wanting to be alone, emotional time, in denial of your choices
Love: Holding back on decisions, needing more time, options, retreating from choice
Career: Hard choices, solitary working, career crossroads
Health: Recharging, unsure of a health plan, slow in progress, spiritually blocked
With choices a plenty, it looks as though the best option is to sit and procrastinate. This is good for a short time but the momentum must not die. Take a leap.
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
Two Of Swords interpretation
The Two Of Swords blocks your path with choices hard.
Emotional times occur when you are hindered in our progression this way, but sometimes it is inevitable that we simply become stuck on our path and faced with an impromptu fork in the road. What you need is your rational head on and to dip into your logic, but these Swords don’t make it easy for you.
You could opt to sit down and ignore the fork entirely, hoping that one day it is washed away by the tide, and perhaps for a time you do. It begins to get tedious though, doesn’t it? And with nobody around to make a decision for you, you have to jump up and go one way or the other. Be kind to yourself here.
There is a false pretence that having more than one love of interest is a blessing but no, not when you need to do the right thing and make a choice between two. Equally you could be at a career crossroads. Which way would make you more content? Only you can answer these questions and to do that, your heart needs to be explored.
