After several renditions I FINALLY created a Hermit card I am happy with. Here is my take on him: The Hermit Tarot card speaks of introspection, inward focus, and isolation. After several renditions with different animals, I choose the bear because of his association with hibernation and caves. My bear is wounded but the wound is bringing forth new life. The Hermit may indicate that a time for self care and intense learning/growth has come. Libra is associated with this card, the number 9, and the star in the lantern is a six-pointed star (the Seal of Solomon, a symbol of wisdom).
