The ninth card of the major arcana.
The grey card of the tarot.
The hermit holds his lantern
looking pensively to the ground.
His lantern signifies a period
The need to be alone.
To rest from the travails of the world.
To seek guidance for the future.
After a period of solitude
The hermit can reconsider
his quest and start a new
journey,a new beginning.
Thus the hermit can become
The first card of the major arcana.
and faith in the future.
