Thank you! This is oh so very true. Love as a fantasy, which kind of relates to the "a love that I experience alone" in my interpretation.

Thank you Thirteen! First, for clarifying the difference in a simple vocabulary use, it's true, the Hermit is about solitude, not loneliness. I still think that it's a little bit about the past, since it's looking to the left... but is, as you say, a look into the past that allows you to see into the future, kind of like learning from it to develop and make better decisions in the future.

It maybe bothers you to see him being asked stupid (prying) questions by others--and it bothers you if you're asked stupid (prying) questions about him. Your love for him is so strong, and so focused that all you want is to be alone with him, so you can really get to know him.

You don't want to "own him" (that'd be 4/Pents)...but you want time with him to yourself, just the two of you. So you can find out what is true and real.
You got me on this one, I definitely don't want to own him, just to be with him, alone, once in a while. Reading your interpretations was very revealing to me... because, yes, I could have gotten any other card, but I got a major arcana and I got THIS card, which my be talking about a love that wants to get away from the noise and the social life to allow us to look inside each other.

Sorry! I already edited the main post to follow the rules.

He lights a candle in your inner darkness or your inner mysteries?

I have drawn this as well for a guy I love and whenever I think of him it feels as if my insides light up (like with the Hermit's lamp). It is a joy.

Does this resonate at all?

It does! Thanks. Actually I recently made a spread asking about a novel that I'm writing, and this guy came out to the picture and I pulled the Hermit again. But with that tarot reading I learned that he's like the fuel of my novel and even though our love will happen or not, his very existence in my life is helping me to know myself better, he's inspiring me.

Things you want to remember, and ponder? Things that change how you think about, well, everything? This is the Hermit. In this case, with a camera phone for his lantern.
Thank you for the graphic example of the Hermit! It does help to relate the tarot cards with every person that we encounter in life, that way we get more familiar with the archetypes.

As I was replying to the post from almalibrarian01, this guy I'm in love wiht, is inspiring me to write a novel. Is kind of an impossible love, but still, he's teaching me a lesson with his very own existence in my life. I guess this is what I learned today about the Hermit thanks to all of your posts, people!

That's beautiful! it sounds like he is your muse. It's a blessing to come across people like that in our lives. <3
