The Magician

Introspection, Searching, Guidance, Solitude


The card shows an old man carrying a staff in one hand and a lit lantern in the other. In the background is a wasteland. Just beyond the wasteland is a mountain range. The Hermit has internalized the lessons of life to the point that he is the lesson. He shows the need to withdraw from society to become comfortable with the self but also the need to come out of isolation to share the own knowledge with others. He is the person we meet who gives us the insights we need to confront the sealed cave. The Hermit is a Threshold Guardian, representing an obstacle to be overcome to move on.
