The Hermit card indicates that you will go through a period of isolation, during which you will try to organise your thoughts and prioritise your desires. You will feel the need to temporarily withdraw from the world in order to achieve personal balance. You will carefully reflect on certain matters in order to gain in maturity and strength. You will try to learn from the mistakes you made in the past so as to avoid repeating them in the future. The period lying ahead of you may be one of solitude, but it will contribute to your spiritual growth and help you acquire experience and wisdom. This period of introspection will be short-lived but very beneficial to your personal development.
Today’s love tarot card is the Justice card in its reversed position. When this card comes out of the deck upside-down, the sword of Justice points to a lack of balance. For couples, this can mean one or both parties failing to live up to the relationship contract. That can mean anything something as serious as infidelity or gambling away the mortgage money. Or it can simply mean failing to do the dishes or take out the garbage. This is a time to assess the relationship’s strengths and weaknesses. Determine whether to restore balance or end it. For single people, the upside-down Justice card may reveal some personal imbalance thwarts their desire for love. This could be anything from workaholism to porn addiction. The reversed Justice card can also mean a single person whose perfectionism blocks their quest for romance.
You are worn out by your sacrifices and efforts and feel like you cannot take it anymore; you want to break free from the restraints imposed on you. You went through a period during which you were forced to discipline yourself and to arduously pursue professional and financial goals you eventually did not manage to achieve. You believe you did everything you could and feel like giving up trying. You are on the verge of letting everything fall apart. As the song goes, “I want to break free”! However, you have to be very careful and to try to keep your impulsiveness under control. You are one step away from fulfilling a goal you have put a lot of time and effort into pursuing; it would be a shame to let it all go down the drain.
Some days just aren’t going to go very well, and you can’t hold yourself responsible! The best thing you can do is to stick to what you know. You know, for example, that eight glasses of water is the daily dietary minimum (double it if you wish). You also know that personal time is important to you (even though you tend to pretend it is not). Regardless of the surprises the day may bring, take comfort in the good things that you can always do for yourself.
