Finance, Money Matters Or Debt:
When the Hermit appears in reverse, its a particularly good time to seek good advice and good analysis on your financial endeavors. This is not a safe time to fly blind and just assume that everything will work out in the end. If you do not understand where your money comes from and where it is going (or how to invest, and so on) this is an excellent and important time to educate yourself.
Card Meanings: Hastiness, Withdrawal, Rashness, Paranoia, Isolation, Foolishness, Immaturity, Loneliness, Imprudence, being reclusive, Restrictive, Anti-Social
This is a lovely card, but one which can often be misunderstood. Youll sometimes see him interpreted to indicate loneliness, withdrawal or isolation – and its true that his appearance can mean those things. But at an inner level, the mystery of the Hermit is much more spiritual and re-assuring .for he symbolises the withdrawal into ones own centre point, where the directions of the still inner voice may be clearly heard and interpreted. The Hermit lives in the quiet place we retreat to when we meditate, or dream. He is the philosopher within, the spiritual guide who leads us to the higher realms. Through him we touch our Higher Self, and the wealth of energy and power in the Universe. On a day ruled by the Hermit, spend time resting in your own centre – meditate – let your mind wonder. If you have not yet found the place you feel is your centre, and believe me .you know it when you find it, then practise exploring yourself a little.
Sit down comfortably, close your eyes, and look inwardly at yourself. Observe your thoughts as though they were external to you. If you do not like what you find then throw it away! Its often the case in the early stages of this procedure people find several things they arent happy with ..but for every unhelpful, critical or murky rock you mentally throw away, new growth will spring up in its place. Eventually youll discover that thoughts are tools that we invest with far too much importance a lot of the time they are peripheral, and often interfere with growth. Behind them reside your dreams, hopes, aspirations, needs, emotions and your soul In readings, the Hermit often suggests a need for time alone – a period of reflection when distractions are limited. In times of action and high energy, he stands for the still center that must be created for balance. He can also indicate that withdrawal or retreat is advised for the moment.
The Hermit can represent seeking of all kinds, also a deeper understanding of a situation. “Seek, and ye shall find,” we are told, and so he stands for guidance too. We can receive help from wise teachers, and, in turn, help others as we progress.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Angel Insights : I recommend keeping a journal, if you dont already, while you read this book. Journaling is a wonderful way to express your feelings, set goals for the future, understand your past, and generally get to know yourself better. But its also a fantastic way to get closer to Spirit and the angel realm. There are several exercises in this book that require a journal. Keep in mind that you dont have to spend a lot of money on your journal: It can be a plain, cheap one you pick up at the drugstorealthough having a pretty journal is helpful, as that will make you want to pick it up more often. You can either spend a few extra dollars on a journal with a pretty cover, or decorate a plain journal by drawing on the cover or pasting pictures on it. For more about journaling, see chapter 6.

Tarot Triumphs: Overall, the Hermit represents a quest, a period of retreat, or a time for being alone. Perhaps renunciation is involved, so the card could indicate giving up unnecessary encumbrances. It can also show the emerging of the true self and the willingness to give up pretense. It may, in a spiritual sense, indicate a growing awareness of the soul, but also the recognition of its vulnerability, as a tiny flicker of light. The Hermit knows his life is a small flame, like the one in his lamp, and that an unmeasured vastness lies beyond it. Then, as humbleness grows, so does access to knowledge from a realm much greater than that of individual achievement.
