I am a tarot beginner and I am using the Rider-Waite Deck and just doing a daily Three Fates spread.
The Hermit keeps coming up in my future. The thing is though a few days ago it was am upright hermit but today it was a reversal.
Now, I have read that some people don't put a lot of weight into a reversal but the cards have been spot on lately with my past and present, but the hermit coming up twice for the future in the same week and one being reversed is confusing.
I am in a situation where I am separated from my wife and most like we will have an amicable divorce and remain best of friends. I can see the hermit being applied from that standpoint.
I can see how I would want to be in solitude to gain peace and understanding, and to further my studies in the esoteric. In that light I can see the Hermit as being a good card and a positive future.
I don't get the hermit reversal though, I have read popular interpretations and basically they all say that I will be hard headed and not listen to good counsel and that I need to step back and listen to people and put my ego to the side.
Maybe I am putting to much into having two hermits this week.
Any advice or suggestions. I know that I ramble in my posts sometimes, so just consider me the Joyce of forum postings.
On a side not, those of you who follow my blog, I had all the notes typed up for the entire Chapter 4 and hit a button and they disappeared. I am currently trying to retype them all and hope to finally have Chapter 4 up today.
