Solitude is your friend today. Make sure you get plenty of alone time. Get to know yourself. What you learn will help you in more ways than you know. The Hermit indicates a need or desire to withdraw from the world. He is a wise old man who has learned much about himself and his world through deep introspection and meditation. Your soul may be craving a retreat in order to replenish and restore. By taking space and solitude now, you will be ready to engage with and guide others when they most need you later on. The answers you seek will be found within you, not in any book or on any website. You might also benefit from seeking the guidance of a wise counselor or mentor.
