  • My Life card is The Hermit. It is card IX of the Major Arcana of The Tarot.

    A few key words to describe her are...wisdom, humility, solitude, searching, detachment, deliberate.

    We often think of The Hermit as being alone. However, that does not mean The Hermit is isolated. Being 'alone' can arise from being ahead of one's time. Or from being integrated and self-directed. Or from a desire to sit on the mountain in conversation with The Cosmos for a time.

    All of that and more!


    PS: As a living archetype of The Hermit, I watch the quality interactions of other Cowbirders. Amongst you, it seems to happen with such ease. I sit in admiration!

    In gratitude,
