The Hermit Love Tarot Meaning

The Hermit Love Tarot Meaning

The Hermit love Tarot meaning, is that it is the card of loneliness. If you have received this card, it usually means that you will go through a period where you need to spend time alone. Whether you’re reading Tarot about your love life, family, or friendships, The Hermit is obviously not a good outcome. 

During times of The Hermit, you will find yourself spend a lot of time alone. There are many reasons as to why this might be the case. Perhaps you will separate from a partner? Maybe you will be out of town? Whatever the reason, The Hermits predicts a time when you will be left alone with just your thoughts for company.

There are circumstances where loneliness is a good thing. When The Hermit manifests as a positive, alone time is needed so that you can get work done. This card meaning is especially true if you’re the type of person who becomes distracted easily.

Sometimes, The Hermit is associated with old age and experience. The solution to a problem can be found with older, wiser people. In this case, you will have an opportunity to talk out your concerns with those who have been through similar situations.

When The Hermit appears as a course of action you should take, then this means that you should walk alone. Blaze your own trail, and don’t be afraid to do things differently. When you’re performing relationship readings, this can mean that you and your partner need some time apart. That’s not to say that you have to separate forever, but you do need a break from each other. 

The historical (pre-Rider Waite Smith) meaning of The Hermit follows on from the warnings of The Chariot. While in the previous card you become a tyrant, The Hermit is the aftermath. The Hermit represents treason against you and corruption. You may have an associate who is not trustworthy. You are surrounded by individuals who wish to watch your downfall.

The above interpretations warn you to be cautious of other people. Keep your thoughts, motives, and plans to yourself. Don’t let anyone uncover your next moves.

The Hermit Love Tarot Meaning

The Hermit is not a positive card for love readings. There is no getting around the fact that this is the Tarot card of loneliness. If you’re in a relationship, this doesn’t look good for its prospects. Your romance will start to go downhill.

If you’re looking for love, the Hermit is also not desirable. The Hermit means that you will be alone for the foreseeable future. That doesn’t mean that you’re going to be by yourself indefinitely; it just means that, for now, love is not on the cards.

The Hermit often appears in readings that ask whether or not your ex is going to return. In this case, the answer is no; there will be no reconciliation. The Hermit symbolizes you in the future spending time by yourself, grieving the loss of your relationship.

The Hermit Feelings Love Tarot Meaning

The Hermit Future Love Tarot Meaning

The only place I would not want The Hermit to land is in a future or outcome position. From experience, I have found this is never a good sign as it can predict loneliness, heartache, and failed attempts. If The Hermit appears in the outcome position of your spread, you might want to reassess your goals.

In love and relationship readings, I often see The Hermit in the outcome position of Tarot readings to indicate that you will leave your lover. In the future, you will give up on this relationship.

Is this relationship going to last? – No, I don’t think that this relationship is going to last. 

Does the future of this look promising? – The future of this matter does not look promising. It is not that it is overly negative; it is just that The Hermit predicts that pursuing this matter can make you lonely. 

Am I going to reconcile with my ex? – No, The Hermit is not a good card to predict an ex-lover coming back. Reconciliation does not seem possible. 

The Hermit As A Negative, Weakness or Obstacle

When The Hermit appears in a Tarot spread as a weakness, obstacle, or negative, this means that you will spend time alone and you will feel lonely. In these cases, your remoteness will cause you to act needy. 

You are doing things which you know push people away, but you cannot help yourself. So, The Hermit appears as negative because it is a warning of things to come. 

The Hermit as a Positive, Strength or Advantage

The Hermit will appear as a positive, strength, or advantage in a Tarot spread when you do not need other people to be happy. You have been alone for an extended period before, so you know you can survive if you do it again.
