The Hermit is the card of sagely guidance and the kind of wisdom attained through perseverance and time. It can signify your own higher self speaking to you, or the good advice given by a trusted friend or a seasoned professional. It is prudent to listen to the wisdom offered, and to your own gut feelings. Those who have travelled the path you are on can offer an enlightened perspective. The Hermit also reminds you to take time to withdraw from the world to focus on your deep, innermost self. Light this candle to bring guidance from both your higher self and the wise people around you that you may gain enlightened perspective.
