The mysterious world of tarot card: The Hermit card

Tarot cards are believed to show us insights into our past, present, and future. Many of us are familiar with how they work and some have only seen them in movies and shows. We always have a question: how does a card work? There are different kinds of tarot cards and the one we will discuss today is the hermit tarot card

Before we move further, let’s know how a hermit card looks like. 


A hermit card has an old man who is standing on a mountain peak. He carries a lantern with 6-pointed stars on one hand and staff in another. 

His lantern shows truth to guide the unknowing, his cloak is for discretion, and his staff helps him navigate. The element is earth and astrologically the ruling planet is mercury

Now let’s understand what a hermit card means and what it is used for. 

What the hermit card means

There are 2 different ways to read a tarot card, upright and reversed. Some people believe that reading a card reversed gives many clear readings. Here we will know what a hermit will mean when it is read upright and when it is read reversed.
