This week, we're visited by yet another Major Arcana Archetype. You'll remember when the Major Arcana dominate a reading, that tells us that Fate is playing a stronger hand in our lives rather than being in control ourselves. This can be a little unsettling for those who prefer to be in control of things, so the best advice I can offer is consider the messages being given and try to learn from them. Listen and absorb. This doesn't mean you're not in control of your life, it just means you should be more open to the Universe's role in it too.
On to this week's reading:
I kind of have a soft spot for this old guy. He tells us that this is the time to take some time for yourself. Give yourself permission not to run yourself ragged trying to fix every little thing. Don't stretch yourself thin for others. Instead, take a breath, and calm yourself. Take time just for you. Revel in it.
If you have a hobby or a passion that no one else in your immediate circle understands or enjoys, then just have it for yourself.
If you're struggling with something, whether it's work or a relationship--romantic or otherwise--or a big decision, the Hermit is telling you it is time for some introspection. Meditate, close out the noise of others and the world and your own anxiety and find the answers you need inside yourself. You know what to do, you just have to give yourself a chance to figure it out yourself.
