THE ARCHETYPE OF THE HERMIT
 

The Hermit is a symbol of solitary knowledge and wisdom. He incarnates time and represents accumulated experience and the adaptation to different stages of the development of the biopsychic clock: childhood, adolescence, maturity and old age. It is the card of I-alone, it evokes feelings of solitude, importance, and bad humor, isolation and difficulty to accept novelties.
