The Hermit comes up at this time to advise you to take a break from your hectic everyday activities and focus on your “inner work”. You are at a crossroads in your life and you need to re-evaluate some things and get pointed in the right direction. Start by spending time in silent meditation and solitary contemplation. This is how you get in touch with your true self. This is a big challenge in a world where you are required to be in constant action, thinking about a thousand different things at once, and talking all the time. But you don’t need to ditch all of your responsibilities and join a monastery. Simply take 20 minutes or half an hour every day to sit quietly with no distractions and concentrate on your breathing. Turn your attention inward, set aside the demands of the ego, and listen.
