People say I love you all the time - when they say, ‘take an umbrella, it’s raining,’ or ‘hurry back,’ or even ‘watch out, you’ll break your neck.’ There are hundreds of ways of wording it - you just have to listen for it, my dear.

If you’re gonna fret, fret over something you can change. Then stop fretting and do something about it.

The Hermit typically lives in a mountain cave, sometimes deep in a forest glen in a hut or tree. He/she lives alone and is usually on the outskirts of a town or village.

The Hermit is associated with wisdom, introspection, creativity, connection to nature, silence, self-knowledge, and guidance.

[Negative aspects include:] isolation, retreat, (giving up) unwilling to face external challenges, seduced by the pleasures of the cave.

At worst, the Shadow Hermit can become a stinking swamp of inactivity and self-loathing. Too much time in the cave can result in a dead-end life.

The Shadow Hermit would rather pontificate ideas of greatness than to plod along in reality. Not unable to face challenges, (the Hermit has courage), but unwilling to do so because this requires physical action and behavioral change. The Shadow Hermit struggles to transform wisdom into action.

The longer the Shadow Hermit is in the cave the harder it becomes to get out and it gets easier to make excuses to stay in where it is comfortable. The Shadow Hermit abandons any sense of duty or responsibility to others and finds people draining, preferring to concern themselves with only themselves. The isolation often leads to cynicism and jaded views of the material world as they retreat deeper and deeper inside. Sometimes becoming lost in their own inner world.

While it is vital that the Hermit must have time to withdraw and retreat to their sanctuaries they are not meant to stay there. The purpose is to return with the wisdom of their introspection. Sometimes this withdrawal comes from a fear of or sense of inadequacy in connection with external life and society.

There are few people who enjoy the study of the inner life more than a Hermit.
